For Abhishek Bachchan, the last few years have been pretty disastrous. His last solo-hit was Guru way back in 2007. In between, two of his multi-starrer’s Dostana and Paa did well at the box-office.
The list of flops though, is pretty long – Raavan, Drona, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Game, Dum Maro Dum, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom – just to name a few, have all failed miserably at the box-office.
Year 2012, hasn’t started too well either. Players, made on a budget of more than 60 crores, has opened to a poor response all over.
For Abhishek fans, there is still a bit of hope left, as the actor has a few interesting films lined up for release in 2012 and 2013. Have a look
Abhishek Bachchan Movies in 2012
- Bol Bachchan – Abhishek’s only other release in 2012, is a comedy film directed by Rohit Shetty. The film also features Ajay Devgan, Asin and Prachi Desai. The story line is inspired from Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s classic Golmal (1979). Abhishek will be playing the role of Amol Palekar while Prachi Desai, who is cast opposite him, will portray Bindiya Goswami. Ajay Devgan plays Utpal Dutt, while a new role is said to be written for Asin. Bol Bachchan Release Date: 13th July 2012.
Abhishek Bachchan Movies in 2013
- Dhoom 3 – Dhoom and its sequel are by far the two biggest hits of Abhishek’s career. Playing the role of a cool cop, the actor will be chasing Aamir Khan this time around. Katrina Kaif plays Aamir’s love interest, while Rimi Sen and Uday Chopra will reprise their original roles. This action thriller produced by Aditya Chopra will hit theaters in 2013. Considering the success of its prequels and the star cast, Dhoom 3 is a guaranteed success.
- Dostana 2- Produced by Karan Johar, Dostana 2 is a sequel to Dostana (2008). The prequel featured Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham along with Abhishek. The chemistry between John and Abhishek was well received by the audience, as well as the critics. Buzz is that Katrina Kaif, who replaces Priyanka, will play the female lead. The shooting is expected to begin this year and the film is likely to release in 2013.
The next two years should be the turning points in Abhishek’s career. Apart from the multi-starrers, he’d be much better off choosing films that are low on budget and are commercially viable.
