20 Years of Refugee: JP Dutta Opens Up About the Bond He Shares with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Abhishek Bachchan



Ace filmmaker JP Dutta had launched actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Abhishek Bachchan in Bollywood 20 years ago with his directorial “Refugee”. In an interview with IANS, Dutta spoke about the romance drama “Refugee” and the bond he shares with Kareena and Abhishek. “Kareena and Abhishek are like my children. I am sort of a father figure to them. I consider ‘Refugee’ as one of my special films because it gave Indian cinema two of its finest and versatile actors. They have completed two decades in the industry, and their work truly depicts the hard work they have put in. It feels great to see them where they are today,” Dutta beamed with pride. 20 Years of Refugee: Abhishek Bachchan Reminisces His Bollywood Debut with Kareena Kapoor (View Post)

He also recalled how Abhishek broke down during the shoot of one of the scenes of his debut film, which also featured Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty and Anupam Kher. “I remember Abhishek doing a scene with Jackie Shroff. It was a highly emotional scene where Abhishek had to put a gun on his head. It was a long shot, and the way Abhishek nailed it was quite laudable. He had done it with a lot of conviction. He actually broke down in the scene and started crying. Even after saying ‘cut’, he continued crying. It took a while to soothe him. That shot made me realise how much involved Abhishek was in acting,” Dutta reminisced. Kareena Kapoor Khan Shares a Beautiful Memory of her Debut Film Refugee as She Completes 20 Years in Bollywood (View Pic)

Dutta also recalled how he would always try to ensure Kareena and Abhishek were comfortable on the sets. “They were not at all nervous. They were full of energy and enthusiasm. I always tried to make them comfortable on the sets. It’s very important for any director to make his or her cast and crew comfortable. There’s no point of having a tensed atmosphere,” he added. Released in 2000, “Refugee” revolves around a young Indian Muslim man, who helps illegal refugees from India and Pakistan cross the border.

On completing two decades in the industry, both Abhishek and Kareena have thanked Dutta, their first director, on social media. “J.P. sahab was the best teacher. Caring, nurturing and has since been an amazing guiding force for me,” Abhishek wrote. Kareena shared the still of her first shot, thanking J.P. Dutta for her “life in the movies”.
