Shah Rukh Khan is one of the great actors who has been ruling Bollywood for decades. He has a massive fan following in India and has totally ruled the box office whenever hit movies hit the screens. Notably, fans would turn up in numbers to watch all of his movies.
For the uninitiated, SRK is India’s richest actor, filmmaker, and TV personality. He is famously known as the Badshah of Bollywood and has appeared in over 80 films. The actor graduated from Hansraj College.
On the other hand, Abhishek Bachchan is one of the popular actors in the Bollywood film industry. He debuted with the war film Refugee (2000). However, his film career didn’t take off properly as he expected. He ran through unsuccessful ventures.
Needless to say, his career changed with the successful action movie Dhoom (2004) and critical acclaim proved with 3 consecutive Filmfare Awards for Best Supporting Actor for Yuva (2004), Sarkar (2005), and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006).
As a result, the success of these movies made him the only actor after Dilip Kumar to win 3 consecutive Filmfare. Notable, he achieved the biggest solo critical and commercial success – Dhirubhai Ambani in Guru (2007).
He has featured in so many successful films. It includes the likes of Dhoom (2004), Bunty Aur Babli (2005), Dus (2005), Bluffmaster! (2005), Salaam Namaste (2005), Dhoom 2 (2006), Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), Guru (2007), Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007), Sarkar Raj (2008).
After that, he has also starred in Dostana (2008), Paa (2009), Bol Bachchan (2012), Dhoom 3 (2013), Happy New Year (2014) and Housefull 3 (2016). Moreover, he earned critical acclaim for OTT ventures like Breathe (2020), Ludo (2020), The Big Bull (2021), Bob Biswas (2021) and Dasvi (2022).
Here’s the career advice that SRK gave to Abhishek Bachchan that helped him shape his career!
“In the very initial years of my career Shah Rukh Khan ji explained this concept to me in the most precise manner. In fact, one day as both of us were having a conversation and I popped out the same question to him stating ‘You’ve done amazing work, which one is your favourite and what all roles would you like to do’, talking about the same, Shah Rukh replied, ‘Whatever work and roles I’m doing right now! Always remember you’re an actor. Ask yourself and introspect, if whatever you are doing right now is not your favourite, then why are you even doing it? Don’t focus on what is going to happen in future. Just focus on your present and give your 100% to it’. Since then I added this piece of advice to my life cart and I highly swear by this career advice,” Abhishek Bachchan said while speaking to ANI.
