When people sat in a tractor to watch the first shoot of Amitabh Bachchan’s “Sequel”.
Abhishek Bachchan debuted with the film Refugee. This was also Kareena Kapoor’s first film. As the son of Amitabh Bachchan, there was a lot of pressure on him. People easily compared him to Amitabh Bachchan. When the villagers learned that Amitabh Bachchan’s sons were filming around the location where the film “Refugee” was filmed, they eagerly went to watch the filming.
In addition to Abhishek and Kareena, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty and Anupam Kher also played special roles in the film “Refugee”. Speaking to Mashable India, Abhishek Bachchan recalled the filming and said that when nearby villagers heard that Amitabh Bachchan’s son was shooting the first of his film, they reached out to see it.
People came to see Amitabh Bachchan’s son
He said that the film’s entire star cast also came to see his work, which is why he was scared. Abhishek Bachchan said that he then thought everyone would go and tell his father about his poor performance. When Abhishek asked Bachchan why was he under pressure for his father’s performances during the first film? Abhishek Bachchan said: “In the beginning it seemed that what people would say was what they would think.
He continues: “I remember during the filming of ‘Refugee’ the first scene was about to be filmed and a lot of people came to it because they heard that Bachchan’s son, who he is, was filming. People from the surrounding villages were also attacked with the tractor. Even Anupam’s uncle (Anupam Kher), who was my acting teacher along with the entire cast of stars, 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 all thought the baby will have the first shot, let’s see what it does and I just do it freaky. I screwed up my scenes. I was starting to think that these people would just walk into the hotel, walk into the PCO and call Dad and say, ‘Just crap, take that out of the picture and let it work somewhere else.’
