Abhishek Amitabh Srivastav
6' 3" (1.91 m)
Aquarian Abhishek Srivastav was born in February 5, 1976, son of Bollywood mega-stars, Jaya Bhaduri and Amitabh Bachchan, brother to Shweta, uncle to her two children (Navya Naveli & Agastye), and the grandson of Harivansh Rai Srivastav, Hindu and Urdu poet, who wrote under the pen-name of Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
He was enrolled in the prestigious Jamnabai Narsee School and Bombay Scottish School, both in Bombay; as well as Modern School in Vasant Vihar in Delhi. After completing school he went to further his studies in Aiglon College. He also studied Business in the United States, but changed his mind and decided to try his luck in Bollywood.
Starting in 2000 with 'Refugee', he went on to star in many other films.
He has also been a playback singer in 'Bluffmaster', and 'Dhoom'.
Success did elude Abhishek at first, but the public starting appreciating him, especially for his role in 'Yuva', Bunty Aur Babli', 'Sarkar', and 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kahena' for which he has won a total of 6 awards. He also has two non-film awards, and has been the recipient of 'Yash Bharatiya Sammam' from the Government of Uttar Pradesh.
As far as his personal love life, he was engaged to Bollywood hottie, Karishma Kapoor, but the engagement was broken. Then he met Aishwarya Rai, who was his co-star in several movies, they got engaged, and were married on April 20, 2007 in Juhu, Bombay. Festivities started as early as April 17, and continued with firecrackers and lights at the Srivastav residences at Pratiskha and Jalsa, as well as the Rai's flat in Bandra.
Abhishek Bachchan, the anything but angry young man, came out of the shadows as Amitabh Bachchan’s son to build a success story in Bollywood.
His father’s son
He was born as Abhishek Amitabh Srivastav . What set him apart from other babies born on that day was that he was the son of superstar extraordinaire Amitabh Bachchan and actress Jaya Bachchan of the Guddi fame, who is currently a Samajwadi MP at the Rajya Sabha. He has an older sister Shweta. He’s also the grandson of Harivansh Rai Srivastav (pen-name Harivansh Rai Bachchan) who was an acclaimed poet. Both Abhishek and Amitabh took on the ‘Bachchan’ from this pen-name. Abhishek is partly Punjabi Sikh on his paternal side and a Bengali Kulin Brahmin on his maternal side.

Critics have a job to do. They do not criticise you without reason.
About his father taking on the role of Marlon Brando in Sarkar (2005): "Please don't compare my father with Brando. It belittles both the actors who are big in their own fields. Even if my father plays The Godfather (1972), he'll do so in his own way".
Abhishek Bachchan: the name has been the reason for endless speculations. Will he? Won’t he? Ever since he returned from his Swiss school and was spotted at functions towering over his petite mother and standing almost shoulder-to-shoulder with his larger-than-life father, he has had movie moghuls flocking to his side. Just about everyone who was anyone had a project lined up for the Small B. And no one had any doubts that he would follow in his father’s footsteps.
The 6'1 feet tall Abhishek Bachchan was born on 5th February, 1976 to Bollywood Legend and Veteran Actor Amitabh Bachchan & Bollywood actress Jaya Bachchan. Since he was interested in acting and his father Amitabh Bachchan supports his decision, he stopped studying business in United States and joined the film fraternity. As a Son of Legendary actor, Abhi will surely make his own place in the industry.
"He is very much his own actor," says Sunil Shetty. "Of course, there are moments when he is his father's son, but that's not because he's been influenced, it's more due to the fact that it's in his genes, both from his father as well as his mother."
On the other hand, the pressure of measuring up to your talented parents could also be quite a strain. How was he facing up to this fact? We got an answer from a member of the industry who wished to remain anonymous. "Abhishek does not once forget where he comes from or whose son he is. But when it comes to his work, he's taken the best of both and combined it with a talent that is his own and the result will soon be there for all to see. I feel it's quite awesome."
People who know Abhishek also feel the same way. One such person commented... "By and large, the film industry has a pretty fake outward attitude, which works for them. I feel Abhishek has an attitude that is genuinely polite and could never be a put-on. He is an introvert but the friends he makes are for life. Abhishek will give his life for his family and friends."
It is a well known fact that Abhishek Bachchan is adored by the members of the film industry. Mothers like Hema Malini dote on him and sex-sirens such as Bipasha Basu hold a “soft corner” for him. However, this wasn’t enough to bring Abhishek Bahchcan the success he was looking for. His debut, Refugee, earned him rave reviews but didn’t click with the masses. His lackluster debut was followed by a string of flops such as Dhai Akshar Prem Ke and Bas Itna Saa Khwab Hain. The pressure was on him to succeed and good news came with the release of Mani Ratnam’s Yuva. Although not a hit, the film did garner Abhishek much deserved critical acclaim and a spate of awards.
He followed this act with the super-hit Dhoom. His role as the suave cop clicked with the masses and had girls screaming for more. Since then Abhishek has delivered more hits such as Bunty Aur Bubli and Sarkar- where he managed to hold his own alongside sharing the screen with his father. Abhishek has some exciting projects lined up for the future and word on of the mouth is that he will surpass his father in terms of success. We wish him luck.
