Abhishek Bachchan Net Worth $30 Million

Abhishek Bachchan was born to Bollywood veterans and superstars, Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan, so it is no wonder that he has managed to make a successful acting career. Abhishek is of Kayastha descent from his father and Bengali from his mother, but has also some Punjabi ancestry. Although he was dyslexic as a child, it didn’t stop him from being educated and making a name for himself – attending Jamnabai Narsee School and Bombay Scottish School in Mumbai. He later transferred to Modern School in New Delhi, and then enrolled at Aiglon College in Switzerland. He has also joined Boston University, but dropped out after a few months to return to Bollywood and pursue his acting career.

Abhishek Bachchan debuted in 2000 with a lead role in the J.P. Dutta war drama “Refugee”. Although the movie scored poorly at the box office, Abhishek earned pretty positive reviews for his performance. By 2004, he had starred in several other poorly received movies, though for the performance in “Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon”, a Sooraj R. Barjatya romantic comedy-drama, he was nominated for the Filmware Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2003, and in 2004 he won the award for his role in the political drama “Yuva” by Mani Ratnam. These engagements provided the basis for Abhishek Bachchan’s net worth.

The breakthrough in Abhishek Bachchan’s career came when he appeared as a Mumbai police officer in the 2004 blockbuster “Dhoom”, an action thriller that scored $11 million at the box office. This success was followed by “Bunty Aur Babli”, a 2005 crime comedy which was the second highest-grossing Bollywood movie of the year. The latter engagement, besides raising his popularity and adding a significant sum to his overall net worth, brought Abhishek Bachchan a nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.

In 2005, Abhishek Bachchan starred alongside his father in another political drama – “Sarkar” – for which he was rewarded with his second Filmware Award for Best Supporting Actor. Prior to winning the same award for the third time in a row, in 2006 for the role in the romantic drama “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna”, Abhishek Bachchan was cast in “Dus” (2005) and “Bluffmaster!” (2005). It is certain that all these engagements made a positive impact to the total amount of Abhishek Bachchan’s wealth.

Abhishek Bachchan acted in “Dhoom 2” in 2006, reprising his role from the original movie and increasing his popularity as well as his net worth – the movie was rated as the highest-grossing Bollywood movie of 2006, with impressive box office receipts of $35 million. Additionally, he appeared in “Sakar Raj”, the sequel to the 2005 “Sakar”, and “Dostana” (2008), both huge commercial successes with $8.8 and $15 million at the box office respectively, and both bringing Abhishek Bachchan Filmware Awards for Best Actor nominations as well as enriching his net worth in total.

In his career so far, Abhishek Bachchan has starred in over 60 movies, of which the most famous, apart from those already mentioned, are “Bol Bachchan” (2012) and “Dhoom 3” (2013).

Besides acting, Abhishek has recently co-bought the Chennaiyin FC, Indian Super League football club, and is also the current owner of the Jaipur Pink Panthers, Pro Kabaddi League franchise team, which won their first championship title in 2014. He has also served as the brand ambassador for various companies and brands including LG, Motorola, American Express, Videocon DTH, Idea Mobiles and Ford, and for these engagements, besides huge amount of money, he has also received the Best Brand Ambassador of the Year award in 2009.

When it comes to his personal life, Abhishek Bachchan was engaged to Karishma Kapoor in 2003, but it was called off after several months. Since 2007, he has been married to Aishwarya Rai, a former Miss World, an actress and a model with whom he has one daughter. The Time magazine enlisted them among the most influential Indians, and after appearance in The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2009, they were described as a super-couple in the Indian media.
