The actor who suffered from dyslexia is none other than Abhishek Bachchan.

Born on 5th February on 1976, Abhishek Bachchan is a prominent actor in the Bollywood industry. Junior Bachchan went to the USA to pursue his career in Business Management but eventually, he dropped out and returned to India to get into Bollywood. This decision of his was whole-heartedly supported by his parents. The actor has starred in more than 50 movies in both the lead and supporting roles, but many of the movies he has acted have not been successful – there is a cloud of various reasons surrounding at the questioned career of the actor.

Junior Bachchan made his debut in Bollywood in J.P. Dutta’s ‘Refugee’ in 2000 alongside Kareena Kapoor which was moderate at the box office but was the 5th highest grossing film of that year.

Abhishek Bachchan in his childhood suffered from ‘dyslexia’ which is known as the reading disorder. The actor had faced a lot of problems because of this learning disability, the intelligence level of a person’s brain is normal but they suffer from the problem of reading, writing, spelling words, sounding out the words in their heads, difficulties with numbers and a lot more. Irrespective of this problem the ‘Dhoom’ actor faced, he battled with it to overcome this problem. No one knew this until Aamir Khan in his movie ‘Taare Zameen Par’, described this disability which the actor went through.


The ‘Guru’ actor coped up with this difficulty and now it can be seen that he is not at all suffering from this problem since his debut in cinema. The actor’s acting cannot be compared to that of his father, Amitabh Bachchan as he is a different individual. He has learned a lot from the movies which did not perform.

If you would see his performances in films like Guru and Refugee, you’d know his true potential. Many say that it was only due to the fact Junior Bachchan was constantly compared to Senior Bachchan, that his career did not take off as well as it should. He has given many good films like ‘Dhoom 2’, ‘Bunty Aur Babli’, ‘Dus’, ‘Bluffmaster’, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’ ‘Sarkar series’, ‘Dostana’ and many more.
