As Mani Ratnam’s hit movie ‘Yuva’ clocked 16 years of its release today, actor Abhishek Bachchan shared a throwback picture from its shoot in Kolkata. He also sent his prayer to people who got affected by the Amphan cyclone.
The ‘Guru’ star put out the throwback picture on Instagram that features him and Ajay Devgn.
Along with the picture, Bachchan wrote in the caption, “Wow! 16yrs already. This photo was taken on the sets of #Yuva in Kolkata. We were about to begin shooting the climax of the film. A memorable shoot. Based in Kolkata. “
Noting the devastation caused by the cyclone Amphan in West Bengal and Odisha, Bachchan wrote, “It’s heartbreaking to see the visuals coming out of Kolkata in the wake of the destruction left behind by #cycloneAmphan #16yrsofYuva@ajaydevgn #ManiRatnam #Kolkata #flashbackfriday.”
Celebrity followers including Arjun Kapoor liked the post.
‘Yuva’ featured Bachchan in the role of a goon, Lallan Singh, who is originally from Bihar but settled in Kolkata, West Bengal because his brother has left him alone and he had no option of earning back home.
Rani Mukerji played his wife in the movie.
