Abhishek Bachchan made an impressive debut alongside Kareena Kapoor in JP Dutta’s Refugee. He may not have tasted as much success as his father Amitabh Bachchan, but he has certainly managed to carve a niche for himself in the film industry with his unconventional roles in films like Bunty Aur Babli, Guru and Paa.
However, if a report in Deccan Chronicle is to be believed, Abhishek’s wife and actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan “felt his career needed a small push”, and hence she decided to hire her alleged ex-boyfriend Salman Khan’s former manager Reshma Shetty.
“Of late, he hasn’t signed new films and is choosing to focus on the best possible projects. Following his revamped priorities, his first new project will be Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s biopic on poet-lyricist, Sahir Ludhianvi. Reshma has been brought in to oversee Abhishek’s forthcoming career moves and to position him as a prominent entertainment brand,” a source was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.
Reshma, who is the Managing Director of Matrix India Entertainment Consultants, worked with Salman for nine years.
