Abhishek Bachchan, is perhaps the only star in the Indian film industry, creating, unique historical records with his film’s promotions. Last year, his whirlwind promotional tour for his film Delhi 6 , across seven cities was a world record for public appearances by a film star, at different cities in 12 hours. The Junior Bachchan has now achieved yet another exceptional feat. For his upcoming film Raavan’s promotions he created history by chatting with over 50,000 fans online at the office of Zapak. Tremendous excitement by his fans, eventually lead to a system crash. However, it was restored immediately.

The whole world is currently gripped in football world cup mania, with every other person rooting and supporting their own team. The fever which started off yesterday has already made some fans switch loyalties.
Normally the Bachchans have a rigid rule about not mixing business with pleasure. But on Thursday morning, when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan landed in Mumbai from Paris, she broke the golden rule when she dropped in unannounced, to meet Abhishek at the Reliance Web World where he was doing out-of-town press interviews.
Says a source, “Lately Abhishek and Aishwarya have had very little time together. After their short anniversary holiday, Abhishek got busy with the shooting of Abhinay Deo’s Game in Greece while Aishwarya returned to India for a stint of Robot. She was then in Paris to honor the Brazilian tennis champ Gustavo Kuerten for his work with disadvantaged children.”
We know all about the gruelling shooting schedules of our stars. Outdoor shoots, travelling for endorsements or events – it’s hectic all right. At such times, it can be annoying when the airlines decide to play spoilsport too.
Celebs get seriously displeased when their plans go haywire because of travelling issues. Or when a nice holiday ends up in being left stranded at the airport. If their tweets are anything to go by, it really gets to them at times.
Sample this – Lara Dutta – “Have been ‘in transit’ for 11hrs! Am exhausted and I’m sorry but fear I might bite or bark at anyone else who asks for a picture! Knackered!”
Abhishek Bachchan – “Argh!!!! Jet lag!! Doesn’t let you sleep, doesn’t let you stay awake either. Any remedies guys?”
Riteish Deshmukh – “At the airport, now heading back to Mumbai. Body clock has absolutely gone for a toss.”
You have our sympathies, guys! But then such are the trappings of stardom!
Using a famous television show for promoting a film is not new. As it is believed, the small screen is a perfect medium to grab attention of the general viewers. Using Sony TV’s music reality show ‘Indian Idol-5’ is a trend that is very popular. Films like Badmash Company, Houseful and Rajneeti have already used the ‘Indian Idol-5’ stage as a platform to promote their films. Now its Abhishek’s turn to promote Raavan!
Abhishek Bachchan has been busy lately with the shoot of his movie Game. The movie boasts of many talented actors like Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Jimmy Shergil, Kangana Ranaut along with Abhishek Bachchan. It also stars Sarah-Jane Dias who will be making her Bollywood debut with this.
Game which was earlier titled Crooked has reportedly been shot at Mumbai, Istanbul, Greece and London. The buzz round the movie now, is that its shoot is over. The shoot of Game, which was taking place at Istanbul has finally ended.
Fathers play an important role in every individual’s life; they shape us, mold us and definitely help us to be a better and stronger person. The same affection can be seen in Bollywood too as several star sons and fathers have made and still make up a dynamic duo in this industry.
Three different wooden bridges for the same sequence had to be built for the climactic fight between Vikram and Abhishek Bachchan in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan. This monument of cinematic architecture between two mountains in a road-less stretch at Malshej Ghat was constructed by the famed production designer Samir Chanda and not by the distinguished bridge-architect Sheshadri Srinivasan, as rumoured.
With Abhishek Bachchan playing a character that has grey shades in the film Raavan, and the latest being Salman Khan who will reportedly play the role of Mogambo in Mr. India 2, it seems that the actors are becoming more accepting towards negative roles. There was a time when actors were very conscious about how the audience perceived them on- screen and off- screen too. They only believed that doing positive roles was the key to win people’s hearts. Fighting the villain, saving the heroine, being the ideal son seemed to be the perfect formula to become a successful hero. But times have changed and the actors are open to experimentation too.
