If yes, then go to his Twitter handle and see for yourself. With a fan following of over 11 millions, Abhishek comfortably sits at the 10th spot in our list of top ten Bollywood celebrities with the highest number of Twitter followers. The tall and handsome actor is the son of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan and is married to former Miss World and one of the most beautiful women in the world, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Talking about his career in films, Abhishek Bachchan debuted with the J.P Dutta directorial, ‘Refugee’ (2000), which also marked the acting debut of Kareena Kapoor. Since Abhishek belonged to the Bachchan family with two legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan as his parents, a lot of hopes were riding on his debut film. But ‘Refugee’ did not do well. Abhishek accepted the fate of his debut film and moved on and started shooting for his other films. It was on the sets of ‘Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke’ (2000) where he met his future wife Aishwarya Rai for the first time and became friends with her. Abhishek was then engaged to Karishma Kapoor and, on the other hand, Aishwarya was in a relationship with Salman Khan. But due to some family issues the engagement was called off and Ash and Salman too broke up.
After a failed relationship with Salman Khan, Aishwarya briefly dated Vivek Oberoi, but even this relationship could not last long. In between all this, Abhishek and Aishwarya did one more film together, ‘Kuch Naa Kaho’ (2003). It was on the sets of ‘Bunty Aur Bubli’ (2005), where both appeared together in the iconic song ‘Kajrare’ along with Amitabh Bachchan, these two started feeling for each other. And then in 2007 finally they got married and now have a beautiful daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan.
TRIVIA: Between his unsuccessful debut film ‘Refugee’ (2000) opposite Kareena Kapoor and first hit film ‘Dhoom’ (2004), he delivered 17 duds in a row.
