Will Shahrukh Khan overshadow Abhishek Bachchan yet again?

After working in Karan Johar’s unconventional emotional saga Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna way back in 2006, the two stars will be sharing screen space in Farah Khan’s forthcoming film. Will SRK yet again be the biggest draw of the film, completely sidelining junior Bachchan?

Those who went to catch  Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna – Karan Johar’s take on extra-marital love equation- primarily swarmed the theatres to watch Shahrukh Khan. Though the film had the commanding presence of Amitabh Bachchan and also featured Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta, not many really went to see Abhishek Bachchan’s execrable dance moves or his average acting skills. Shahrukh Khan was the biggest attraction and young girls swooned over him, even though the Badshah of Bollywood played a limping gloomy man. SRK’s character had shades of grey, yet he completely overshadowed AB’s baby in the Karan Johar production.

And now we hear both Shahrukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan are coming together for Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming film Happy New Year. We know that after delivering two major duds – Raavan and Players – at the box office, Abhishek badly needs a hit. Perhaps Junior Bachchan is aware of the fact that when one does a film with SRK, the possibility of one getting overshadowed because of SRK’s starry allure is very high. But one can’t also deny the fact that Shahrukh is synonymous with commercial success. His films eventually mint money at BO and garner eyeballs. Abhishek, wethinks, has to take his chances here and hope to get his share of attention in the bargain. What do you think?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    It is unfair to compare the two actors that are senior and junior. The media tend to criticise actors needlessly. why?

  • karina

    I adore shahrukhkhan and love abhishek too,abhishek needs a chance to proove himself,he is a very good actor

  • Saba

    yaar……….you should ask question carefully.
    SRK is the best n there is no need to compare him to his very very junior Abhishek.
    SRK rockksssssssssssss…..

  • Oprah

    Love Abhishek. He is a natural, no airs, no insecurity. SRK and Gari are pale imitations. And BTW KANK was a huge huge flop. Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor and Preity Zinta should get together for a threesome for thats what they seem to enjoy most.

  • Dalia

    Abhishek bachchan is handsome and cool but neither him nor any other actor in the world has SRK’s magical charm, SRK will always and forever be the one and only king of hearts.

    Why Oprah is so crazey for Aishwarya and Abhishek Srivastav.

  • Shilpa

    Comparisons of Abhi shake and SRK (King of Bollywood); sounds like joke.

    SRK has been on top of the game for the last 20 years. He has spent most years on number 1 position (go to indianboxoffice.com and check hit actors down the year) and there have been few years where he was on the 2nd position; however Abhi shake has never even been in the top 5 in his career.

  • king

    king is king and other all are flops

  • vijay

    both great

  • Rohit

    Srk and abhishek both r a complete bst hero.Abhishek jz wnt 2 prove himself he is a future hero…Abhishek rockzzz !!!

  • Anupam kumar

    Abhishek is always best because he prooves his acting skill in many films like guru,yuva,dostana,kank,b&b,dhoom,sarkar,paa,bol bachchan & etc but his bad luck & choosing bad script due to this his movie becomes flop,in acting abhishek always better than shahrukh aur award usi ko milte jo movie hit hote hai”abhi is always best bus choose good script”than all other fail w.r.t. abhi aur choose good action movies

  • amit kumar mishra

    stop writing these nonsense , abhishek is far more capable actor then srk and has already proved himself in his previous film like yuva , guru , sarkar , bunty and bubly . he has done different type of role which he is capable of unline srk doing romantic movie only crying always on the screen worth for nothing. this is true if y. chopra has not given him opportunity he will remain like a garbage . abhishek roks always . amit kumar mishra (09471191545)
