Abhishek Bachchan on Being Dyslexic

Junior Bachchan of Bollywood Abhishek Bachchan who had turned 43 yesterday had opened up on the fact that he was dyslexic during his childhood, The fact that Abhishek Bachchan has dealt with dyslexia is quite a known fact and it was even shown in  Aamir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par. If you’ve lived under a rock for all these years, Aamir holds up a poster of Abhishek pointing his dyslexia out. The actor has never shied away from admitting it and has always urged parents to understand that is a legitimate learning disorder that can happen to anybody.

Abhishek was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was nine, but he only figured it out after graduating. This is one of the major reasons why he urges parents to consider it as a learning disorder and also to accept it like any other condition. Abhishek feels that instead of looking at it as a problem if we look at it as a condition, the chances of children coping with it will be higher. He thinks it is important to recognize the problem in the field of education and the indifference that we show towards the slow learners should be curbed. On the work front, Abhishek will be next seen in Amazon’s Breathe and in Anurag Kashyap’s untitled next.
