However, later her claims were rejected and she was considered a fraud.
• His honeymoon trip with his wife, Aishwarya Rai, in Florence annoyed a lot of people including Mani Ratnam, director of Guru, who was miffed with Abhishek for missing the promotional campaign, and Rani Mukherji because it delayed the shooting of her film Laaga Chunari Mein Daag.

FAQs

Which is the best movie with Abhishek Bachchan?

Guru- One of his finest works. Some amazing performances, Mani Ratnam’s direction, and a brilliant inspirational tale. Yuva- Again, Terrific work, Though Ajay Devgn and Vivek Oberoi were also in the lead but he doesn’t let them steal his thunder. Raavan- Though the script is a bit gory and loses impact in few places, but some of the cast has done compelling acting.

Why did Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor split?

It was Ritu Kapoor who played matchmaker for Karishma Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan. However, Karishma’s mother Babita Kapoor had doubts about Abhishek’s credibility and his success as an actor in the future. So she (and probably be Karishma too) wanted to sign a prenup with big earnings of Amitabh passed on to Abhishek (thus can be claimable by his to-be-wife Karishma). But then nothing is certainly known. Jaya Bachchan said in some interview later that none of the parents played any part in their break up. So the speculation is Karishma asked for a prenup (still secretly under the influence of her mother), and Abhishek refused. In the end, these are rumors and reasons like these are never revealed with 100% confidence in the public.

What are the reasons behind the failure of Abhishek Bachchan in Bollywood?

Bad luck and a laid back attitude. Like other stars, he could have easily got the remake rights of a couple of good South Indian hits ( his father has good southern contacts) and produced a film for himself. Even one big hit a year would have kept him going. Earlier Jeetendra did that, Anil Kapoor did that, Mithun Chakraborty did that, and in this era, Salman did that to come out of his flops in the early 2000s.

Has Abhishek Bachchan tested positive for the coronavirus?

On 11 July 2020, he was tested positive for COVID-19 along with his father, Amitabh Bachchan, and both had been admitted to Nanavati hospital in Mumbai.
