Abhishek Bachchan celebrates 20 years of his first film Refugee, calls it 'dear and special'

Abhishek Bachchan took to Instagram on Tuesday to celebrate 20 years of his first film Refugee. Abhishek debuted in the Hindi film industry opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan in JP Dutta's Refugee. Abhishek has now said that his first film is still very dear and special to him.
 
The Happy New Year actor captioned his post writing, "Time flies when you’re having fun! #RoadTo20 Today, 20 years ago JP Dutta’s Refugee released. Marking the introduction of yours truly and @kareenakapoorkhan into the world of films.”
 
"Your first film is always most dear and special; Refugee was no different. An amazing experience! A newcomer could not have asked for anything else," he added.
 
The actor also thanked filmmaker JP Dutta for his guidance and support. Abhishek Bachchan also thanked his family for their support and wrote, “However, none of this would have been possible without my family! They have been my inspiration, my strength, my silent support, and my “raison d”être”. They allowed me the freedom to figure out whatever I needed to without ever pressurizing me, burdening me with expectations. They let me know when they didn’t like performance and showered me with love when they did. I am because of them and I hope, someday whey they look back and reminisce they feel proud of me."
 
Abhishek Bachchan is set to star in his debut digital release soon titled Breathe: Into the Shadows. Junior Bachchan is also soon going to star in films like The Big Bull and Bob Biswas.

Time flies when you’re having fun! #RoadTo20 Today, 20 years ago JP Dutta’s Refugee released. Marking the introduction of yours truly and @kareenakapoorkhan into the world of films. Your first film is always most dear and special; Refugee was no different. An amazing experience! A newcomer could not have asked for anything else. JP sahab was the best teacher. Caring, nurturing and has since been an amazing guiding force for me. The entire cast and crew were so patient,supportive and encouraging. My love and respect for all of them is boundless. Thank you! It is a blessing and a privilege to be able to look back and recount the last 20 years. Any actor will tell you, getting to make a film is a huge honour. Surviving 20 yrs seems unimaginable. The best part is, I feel like I’m just getting started. I have so much more to prove. So much more to do and I can’t wait.... However, none of this would have been possible without my family! They have been my inspiration, my strength, my silent support and my “raison d”être”. They allowed me the freedom to figure out whatever I needed to without ever pressurising me, burdening me with expectation. They let me know when they didn’t like a performance and showered me with love when they did. I am because of them and I hope, some day whey they look back and reminisce they feel proud of me. But, now this is sounding like the end.... nowhere near it. Like I said, I’m just getting started. And “miles to go before I sleep”.
