R Balki’s upcoming film, "Ghoomer," is generating significant interest and is much anticipated by audiences due to its compelling narrative and visionary direction. This project is expected to be a transformative opportunity for Abhishek Bachchan, renowned for his performances, as it allows him to demonstrate his skills in a novel manner. Pundits predict that the film is going to have a profound impact on the audience because it is one which delves deep into the emotional and motivating journey of the protagonist.

Abhishek Bachchan's career boasts of many exceptional roles that he has played. Notable examples include his intense portrayal of Lallan Singh in Yuva, his impactful depiction of the determined entrepreneur Gurukant Desai in Guru, and his restrained yet powerful acting as Shankar Nagre in Sarkar. Additionally, he has scored in comedies too, like when his performance in Bunty Aur Babli was applauded.

When Abhishek Bachchan was asked if Ghoomer will be a game changer for him at the Q&A session during the trailer launch, Abhishek Bachchan replied, “For every actor, director, producer and all those who are associated with the film, Friday decides the future of everybody. Every film is a make-or-break film. Friday will decide if the audiences love you and the audiences want to see more of you. Every film is a make-or-break film for every artist, everyone associated with the film. Ghoomer is no different as it's the same.”

Talking about the trailer of the film and how he is looking forward to seeing Ghoomer, trade analyst Komal Nahta shares, "The trailer of maverick filmmaker R Balki’s ‘Ghoomer’ was a googly indeed! Never expected that a film thus titled would have such a story. Abhishek Bachchan and Saiyami Kher spring wonderful surprises in this one! I can’t wait to watch the film.”

Abhishek took on the challenging role of a father with a child suffering from progeria in Paa, showcasing his sensitivity. His versatility was evident in Manmarziyaan, where he played Robbie Bhatia with great skill.
