Abhishek Bachchan on 2 decades of ‘Yuva’: 'Can’t believe it’s been 20 years'

Mumbai, May 22 (IANS): Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who will be next seen in the yet-to-be-titled Shoojit Sircar directorial, is celebrating two decades of his cult film ‘Yuva’ directed by Mani Ratnam.

On Wednesday, the actor took to Instagram Stories and shared a video, which 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).
