Abhishek Bachchan recalls the lesson Yash Chopra gave him before the release of his first film Refugee

Actor Abhishek Bachchan is currently waiting for the release of his first web series on Amazon Prime Video. The show is called Breathe: Into the Shadows. Abhishek plays a distraught father who must find his disappeared daughter. In a recent interview Abhishek has now opened up about his movie failures. The actor also revealed the advice he received from Yash Chopra before the release of his first film Refugee.

Abhishek recalled Chopra saying, "Remember, your father brought you till here, but the moment you walk into that cinema, and the show gets over and you walk out, you’re on your own two feet.”
“I had already informed my parents that this was my desire. Once you first overcome the shyness or awkwardness that you want to join the films -- especially if it’s a family business -- you’re still trying to skirt the issue. You can’t be practical about this. It has to be an emotional decision. It’s all or nothing, it’s do or die. That’s when I decided it’s either this or nothing else, " he added.
Abhishek also said, "Everybody has their own journey. We should never judge somebody else’s journey. I’ve never liked to look back and lament, because there’s a lot to be appreciative about. I have immense respect for any actor who features in a film, no matter in what capacity. That period was very difficult to cope with, it was very difficult to confront. At the same time, I was so blessed to be a part of one film. That’s the dream of millions of people, so should I be complaining? At least I got to make those films, some people don’t get a chance to make even one film.”
The Raavan actor concluded saying, "I’m from this industry, I feel very protective of this industry. This is my family business -- audiences have given my family everything that we have today.”
