Over the past two decades, Abhishek Bachchan has impressed the audience with his versatility. From his debut movie Refugee to his upcoming projects, he has portrayed varied characters with ease. No matter what the genre, AB junior has left no stone unturned in entertaining his audience. While many actors have opened up about how comedy is the most difficult genre to shoot for, Bachchan has made it seem like a walk in the park with his exceptional comic timing, facial features and body language.
Let’s take a look at his six such films which were loved by the audience:
1. Bunty Aur Babli (2005)
Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Amitabh Bachchan, the 2005 con-drama became an instant hit amongst the audience. Not only did this Shaad Ali directorial bring the father-son duo together on-screen for the first time, but Abhishek’s impersonation of various characters, his comic timings and facial expressions left the audience in awe of his talent.
2. Bluffmaster! (2005)
Bluffmaster! is one of the many movies from the mid-2000s which are still cherished by the audience. Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh’s hilarious duo and the chemistry with Priyanka Chopra Jonas is still praised by everyone. Even though Junior Bachchan’s character Roy was a fraudster who tries to change his way of living for his girlfriend, the situations he must deal with throughout the movie, as well as his reactions to those situations, are hilarious.
3. Dostana (2008)
Produced by Karan Johar, Dostana starred Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and John Abraham in lead roles. Not only did Abhishek and John give bromance a new meaning, but their on-screen chemistry as they pretended to be gay men in love and their back-and-forth with Kirron Kher, who essayed the role of AB’s mother in the film, left fans rolling on the floor with laughter and wanting for more.
4. Bol Bachchan (2012)
Time and again AB junior has proved his range as an actor by portraying different shades of characters. In this film, he played his namesake, Abhishek Bachchan, a simple man who wants to work hard for his family who transforms himself into Abbas Ali, an effeminate man and classical Kathak dancer, was well-appreciated by the audience as well as critics. His impeccable comic timing, dialogue deliveries and his well-suited body language when portraying Abbas created comedic ripples and left the fans in splits.
5. Happy New Year (2014)
One of the biggest commercial successes for the actor, Junior Bachchan’s role in the movie was loved by everyone. Directed by Farah Khan, the heist comedy saw Abhishek as a Maharashtrian drunkard, Nandu Bhide who was a look-alike of Vicky Grover, the son of the movie’s villain Charan Grover. Being the amazing actor that he is, Abhishek managed to impress the audience by portraying two different personalities flawlessly.
6. Housefull 3 (2016)
The Housefull franchise has always managed to create laughter amongst the masses. The third film starred Abhishek Bachchan alongside Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri, Lisa Haydon, Chunky Pandey, and Jackie Shroff. Abhishek’s portrayal of a wannabe rapper Bunty was loved by everyone. His facial expressions alone were enough to crack us up.
After entertaining the audience for 20 years, Abhishek is all set to step in the new decade with interesting projects like Ludo, Bob Biswas, The Big Bull and many more. We wish the handsome hunk good luck for his future endeavours and hope he entertains us for many more decades to come.
