    Will Abhishek Bachchan finally get a hit film?

    Having bagged an Ekta Kapoor flick and another by Goldie Behl, it seems he might not have to wait too long to hear cash registers ringing
    Abhishek Bachchan’s luck just might be turning… for the better, of course! We hear that he has signed two major films that could change the way his career has been sliding. True, he’s lost quite a few biggies – A Wednesday director Neeraj Pandey’s next film Special Chabbis was to come to him but it went to Akshay Kumar instead, Prakash Jha’s film Chakravyuha went to Abhay Deol, Ram Gopal Varma’s film Department went to Rana Daggubati. Abhishek and his fans need not fret. He does have Bol Bachchan, Dhoom:3 and Dostana 2, and we hear he has almost finalised one film each with Goldie Behl and Ekta Kapoor. Click here to read more

    Why did Abhishek Bachchan not use a body double for ‘Players’ stunt?

    Why did Abhishek Bachchan not use a body double for ‘Players’ stunt?

    From zipping over cars to hanging on to fast moving trains, Abhishek has done several risky stunts in the Abbas-Mustan movie
    Looks like Abhishek Bachchan has taken after his father Amitabh in more than just his height. Abhishek has taken to doing his own stunts, just like his Pa used to do in films like Nastik and the infamous Coolie. The junior Bachchan scared the entire unit of Players, including directors Abbas and Mustan Burmawala, when he insisted that he will do all the risky stunts himself. You all know that Players, which also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Bipasha Basu and Sonam Kapoor, is a heist flick and so has several high-octane action sequences – car chases, actors running under planes hovering just above their heads and speedy trains running amok. Nowadays, most of the stunts are computer generated (like the train sequence in RA.One), but Abbas-Mustan decided to actually film it on location in Russia. Click here to read more
