Abhishek Bachchan turns 37
Abhishek Bachchan has repeatedly been referred to, by well wishers, as the "dark horse" of Bollywood. Gossip hawks love spinning endlessly speculative yarns on him. He is the punching bag of Doubting Thomases: How is he ever going to live up to his parents' fame? Will he ever be able to hog the limelight from his internationally famous wife? Has he? Hasn't he? Will he? Won't he?
Questions, assumptions and speculations apart, Small B is as enigmatic as his Big Dad. And, as is the norm with the Lions and the Bachchans, Abhi always moves in groups -- preferably with those of the same surname. He is spotted at functions towering over his petite mother, Jaya Bachchan; he has almost always been seen hand-in-hand with his Beauty Queen wife, Aishwarya Rai; he is also seen walking shoulder-to-shoulder with his larger-than-life father, Amitabh Bachchan. Whatever/wherever he is, Abhishek has always been the object of focus of every snap-happy scribe.
