It’s taken Abhishek Bachchan very long, almost 15 flops and five years, to emerge from the shadows cast by his formidable surname. His fortunes began to change with
Yuva, and success came with Dhoom in which he played a young cop with style and attitude. This year, Small B showed that he could do an over-the-top comic turn with ease in
Bunty Aur Babli, that his face could register quick changes of emotion in
Sarkar and that he could also make yuppies swing to the Dus anthem. At a time when all heroes are gym-toned bodies, Abhishek is about the face—sincere and straightforward, with eyes women can look into for hours. His growing popularity marks a return to the old-fashioned.
