Abhishek Bacchan (Abhishek Bachchan) made his debut with the film ‘Refugee’. This was also Kareena Kapoor’s first film. Being the son of Amitabh Bachchan, there was a lot of pressure on him. People easily compared him with Amitabh Bachchan. When the villagers came to know that Amitabh Bachchan’s sons were shooting around the place where the film ‘Refugee’ was shot, they eagerly went to watch the shooting.
Apart from Abhishek and Kareena in the film ‘Refugee’, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty and Anupam Kher also played a special role. Recalling the shooting in a conversation with Mashable India, Abhishek Bachchan said that when the nearby villagers heard that Amitabh Bachchan’s son was shooting the first of his film, they reached to see him.
People came to see Amitabh Bachchan’s son
He said that the entire star cast of the film had also come to see his work, due to which he was terrified. Abhishek Bachchan said that then he thought that everyone would go and tell his father about his bad performance. When Abhishek asked Bachchan why he was under pressure during the first film because of his father’s achievements? On this Abhishek Bachchan said, ‘In the beginning, it seemed that what people would say, what would they think.
He further explains, ‘I remember during the shooting of Refugee, the first scene was to be shot that a lot of people came to watch, because they had heard that Bachchan’s son, who is he, was shooting. People from the surrounding villages had also reached in the tractor. Even Anupam Uncle (Anupam Kher) who was my acting teacher along with the entire star cast was also in the film.
Abhishek Bachchan was furious
Abhishek Bachchan finally explains, ‘In the first scene, Kareena Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Kulbhushan Kharbanda ji, Padmini Kapila, Reena Roy were all there and they were all thinking that the baby has the first shot, let’s see what it does and I just freaked out. Gone. I messed up my scenes. I started thinking that these people would just go to the hotel, enter the PCO and call dad and say, ‘Just rubbish, take this out of the picture and put it to work somewhere else.’
