Renowned Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, the son of the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, has had his fair share of struggles and triumphs in the film industry. Among his many films, ‘Shararat,’ released in 2002, marked a significant moment in his career. However, in a recent interview with E Times, the actor disclosed an unfortunate incident related to this particular film.
Abhishek recalled an incident that took place outside the Gayatri Galaxy theater when a woman, visibly upset after watching ‘Shararat,’ approached him and delivered a slap. The reason behind her outburst was her disapproval of the film, and she made her sentiments clear with that unexpected act.
Speaking candidly about the incident, Abhishek stated that the woman did not like the film, which led her to physically express her dissatisfaction. Her actions left the actor in disbelief, but he shared this experience with a sense of understanding, knowing that not every film can resonate with every viewer.
Despite being the son of an iconic actor, Abhishek’s journey in the industry has been challenging, with a mixture of successes and setbacks. He attained success with films like ‘Guru,’ ‘Yuva,’ ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna,’ and ‘Manmarziyaan,’ but achieving recognition and acceptance in the film world was not an easy path for him.
Interestingly, exactly ten years after the incident at the Gayatri Galaxy theater, Abhishek found himself returning to the same venue for the release of his film ‘Bol Bachchan’ in 2012. Reflecting on the full circle moment, he shared that after the screening, he captured a photograph of the massive crowd gathered outside the theater and sent it to his father, Amitabh Bachchan. The incident served as a poignant reminder of how life comes around in mysterious ways.
Despite occasional setbacks, Abhishek has remained determined and persistent in his career. Recently, he was seen in the film ‘Dasvi,’ alongside Yami Gautam. Moreover, he is all set to star in the Hindi remake of the Tamil thriller ‘Oththa Seruppu Size 7.’ Additionally, the actor has exciting projects in the pipeline, working with directors Remo D’Souza and Shoojit Sircar.
Abhishek Bachchan’s journey in Bollywood stands as an inspiration for many aspiring actors, showcasing that dedication and passion are crucial for success in an industry that can be both rewarding and challenging. Despite facing hurdles, he has managed to carve a niche for himself with his diverse roles and continues to evolve as a talented performer.
Abhishek’s encounter with the displeased viewer serves as a reminder that art is subjective, and every film will not resonate with every audience. While it was a trying moment for the actor, he acknowledges that such incidents are part and parcel of being in the limelight. With his spirit of resilience, Abhishek Bachchan remains committed to entertaining and inspiring audiences with his remarkable performances for years to come.
