Taking to Instagram, Abhishek posted a series of videos where he’s spilling beans about his on set experiences and why he was thrown out of ‘Pukar’s’ set. The actor wrote, â€œThe year- 2001 #BasItnaSaKhwaabHai Two childhood best friends who wanted to make a movie together ever since they were thrown off the set of their father’s film for breaking the props because as a 5 yr old and 6 yr old we got excited seeing fake swords on set. The movie was #Pukar and @goldiebehl ‘s father ( the great Ramesh Behl) was the Director and my dad the lead. During the climax shoot in Goa, we chanced upon the fake swords and started playing with them and then eventually breaking them. We were promptly sent back to the crew hotel. 19 yrs later we made our first film together. @goldiebehl @srishtibehlarya @amitabhbachchanâ€
Sharing about his journey in 2002, he wrote, â€œA year of many firsts!!! But the top would be getting to be part of a film with my mother. ‘Desh’ was a Bengali film she was acting in (directed by Raja Sen). I was in Kolkata for a function when she called me and asked me to visit her. She was shooting near Siliguri in West Bengal. I did. And ended up doing a small cameo as her on-screen son. The other would be, being directed by one of my acting teachers, my guru… @anupampkher Om Jai Jagdish was Anupam uncle’s 1st film as a director. He helped me immensely in â€œopening up as an actorâ€ and shedding my â€œawkwardnessâ€. One of the best teachers I’ve ever had!â€
