Abhishek made his acting debut in the year 2000 with J.P Dutta's Refugee, which evidently a springboard for him failed to catapult him to the top among the leading stars of the day. Big B's baby went on signing many new projects, but none of them reaped success at the box office. The series of flops gave him the title "black horse". He has been the brand ambassador for Ford Fiesta and has participated in fashion shows as well along with his sister and father Big B himself.
The 6'1 feet tall handsome hunk of Bollywood had to strive hard before he could make a mark of his own in Bollywood. His irresistible endearing allure, reserve and quick wittedness inherited from his parents have rendered him as a mysterious persona too hard to resist.
A gentleman in every sense of the term, Abhishek is regarded as truly a Ladies' man with his etiquette and refined personality. Being a star child comparison was inevitable. As the son of leading film personages he struggled to wean himself clear of associations with his parents in his own way through an individualistic acting strain.
