A host of Bollywood celebrities, including Preity Zinta, Riteish Deshmukh and Bipasha Basu, have wished good luck and success to Abhishek Bachchan on his birthday Saturday.
The actor, who turned 35, is currently shooting in New Zealand for Abbas Mastan’s “Players”. But his colleagues reached out to wish him through micro-blogging site Twitter.

Abhishek began his career with J.P. Dutta’s “Refugee” (2000). He then went on to give a string of poorly received films, but his performances in “Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon” (2003) and Mani Ratnam’s “Yuva” (2004) proved his mettle as an actor.
The same year, he starred in “Dhoom” — his first commercial hit — and in 2005, he shot to fame with four movies that did well commercially – “Bunty Aur Babli”, “Sarkar”, “Dus” and “Bluffmaster”.
In 2007, the actor starred in “Guru”, receiving much acclaim for his performance, and the film emerged as his first solo hit. Later, he went on to do films like “Sarkar Raj”, “Dostana”, “Delhi-6” and “Paa”, among others.
The actor has a full kitty this year with four films “Game”, “Dum Maro Dum”, “Players” and “Bol Bachchan”.
