This book contains some fascinating anecdotes and a wonderful collection of photographs, spanning several decades. The story of Abhishek, the only son of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, is captured in great depth and detail by the author-cum-photographer, Pradeep Chandra. ‘The urge to know more about a person like him propelled me to write this book,’ shares Chandra. ‘But, along with me, my camera, too, is equally drawn to Abhishek. He is an interesting subject because he displays a plethora of emotions without any hesitation. I have been clicking him since he was a kid.’ This special pictorial biography brings to life the many facets of the actor, highlighting the different roles he plays. Rugged masculine looks, style and charm are part of the persona of a star, an actor, a celebrity. Yet, Abhishek is a man of many milestones, in areas as diverse as movies, sports and business.
