en Bollywood News 19 Years of Socha Na Tha: Abhay Deol reflects on “valuable lessons” and looking like a “70’s porn star” in his debut film

Abhay Deol made his debut with Socha Na Tha, which was released today 19 years back.

Actor Abhay Deol took a trip down memory lane on his social media on March 4, 2024, as his debut film Socha Na Tha completed 19 years since its release. Taking to his Instagram handle, Deol shared the film's poster and penned a heartfelt message reflecting on his journey in the industry. "On this day 19 years ago, I made my debut in the film 'Socha Na Tha,'" he wrote. "Still feels like it was only yesterday!"

Deol reminisced about his naivety as a newcomer and expressed his choices in staying true to himself: "It's been quite the learning curve, how innocent and naive we were," he wrote. "Whilst I'm happy that I didn't cave into market demands and package myself into a brand via endorsements and PR, I do wish I was a bit more savvy.”

He further acknowledged the challenges and rewards of following his creative vision: "But here I am, 19 years later, still making movies. I cannot be more grateful. And I did become a brand via the film choices I made. I faced the successes and failures of my choices by myself. Following my heart has taught me many valuable lessons. I wouldn't change a thing, because I wouldn't be the man I am today, so comfortable in his skin.”

Adding a touch of humor, Deol concluded, "Although I do wish I'd gotten my own stylist for the movie, and someone to tell me that my side burns made me look like a 70's p@rn st@r!”
