20 years of Yuva: Amitabh Bachchan calls Abhishek 'best', revisits day his son got an award for the film

As the Bollywood film 'Yuva' completed 20 years on May 22, actor Amitabh Bachchan took to social media to share a throwback picture and praise his son. Bachchan revisited the day Abhishek got an award for his villain act in the film that also stars Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi, Rani Mukerji, Esha Deol among others. The film was directed by Mani Ratnam. 

The picture shared by Bachchan sees him and Abhishek walking towards their seat after the latter received his award. For collecting his award, Abhishek also took his father along with him on the stage. 

Sharing the picture, Amitabh Bachchan wrote in the caption, "When Abhishek won the Award for YUVA .. when his name was announced he took me to the stage and gave the Award to me .. I said ये मेरा नहीं तुम्हारा है , और जो मेरा वो तुम्हारा ..Today celebrating 20 years of its release !!! What a film and what a performance Bhaiyu .. you are the best".

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, marking the milestone year, Abhishek Bachchan took to Instagram Stories and shared a video. The video  shows a scene where his character Lallan is testing the mic before an election speech.

The actor wrote on the video, “#20yearsofYuva. My God! Can’t believe it’s been 20 years."

‘Yuva' was simultaneously shot in Hindi and Tamil as ‘Aayutha Ezhuthu’. It is loosely based on the life of George Reddy, a scholar from Osmania University in Hyderabad.

The film also starred Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi, Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukerji, Sonu Sood, and Esha Deol in key roles.

Abhishek plays a villain in the film, who carries out political assaults at the behest of a politician played by Om Puri.

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap wrote the Hindi dialogues for Abhishek’s character in the film. The two later had a fallout after Anurag felt Abhishek didn’t do justice to his dialogues. However, they buried the hatchets and went on to collaborate on ‘Manmarziyaan’ (2018).

On the work front:

Amitabh will be seen in 'Kalki 2898 AD'. Recently, makers announced the new release date. The sci-fi flick, which was supposed to be out in May 2024, will now hit the theatres on June 27. The film is touted to be a mythology-inspired sci-fi extravaganza set in the future. Kamal Haasan, and Disha Patani are also a part of the 'Kalki' world. 'Kalki 2898 AD' is directed by Nag Ashwin.

Abhishek, on the other hand, was last seen in R Balki's 2023 film "Ghoomer," playing the role of a disgraced cricketer who transitions into a coach. He is now gearing up for his next project with Shoojit Sircar.Johnny Lever, Ahilya Bamroo, and Jayant Kriplani are also part of the film.
