Abhishek Bachchan has revealed that he had regret over his Bollywood debut Refugee. In his interview, he stated that at the time, he wasn’t prepared to work with the great JP Dutta. Abhishek said he should have been better for JP Dutta.
Refugee, a love drama film released in 2000, marked Abhishek Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor’s Bollywood debuts. JP Dutta wrote and directed the film. Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty, and Anupam Kher also starred in the film. When questioned about making mistakes in his career in an interview with RJ Siddharth Kanan, Abhishek remarked that one of the few regrets he has is that when he made his debut with Refugee. He thought he wasn’t equipped to work for the great JP Dutta. When one gets the opportunity to work with such a renowned filmmaker on their debut film, he must be ready for both the difficulty and the honour. As an actor, Abhishek felt he was woefully unprepared. He should have gone into the movie much more prepared. JP saahab is his family, and he adores him. For him, he should have been better.

But that’s also something that’s been fantastic learning. He would not have learned what he learned in the following 20 years if he hadn’t. The actor believes he would not have learned anything as an actor if he had been so prepared at the time. It’s not so much how one begins as it is how one finishes. However, the beginning defines how much of a person’s life will finish. Because he got off to a rocky start in that regard for his preparation, it prompted him to pull up his socks, to do better and to need to do better.
Abhishek has appeared in nearly 60 films, including Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, LOC Kargil, Zameen, Run, Yuva, Hum Tum, Bunty Aur Babli, Dhoom, Sarkar, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Delhi-6, Paa and Raavan..
