Tusshar Kapoor recently completed 20 years in Bollywood. He had made his debut in Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai opposite Kareena Kapoor. The film had released in 2001 on May 25. And like any other newcomer, Tusshar was also given some unusual advices where people had asked him to fight at parties and emote like Shah Rukh Khan.
"At the beginning of my career, I was this quiet type. People would give me crazy advice - jhagda karlo parties mein (get into a fight at parties), xyz type ke scene mein Shah Rukh Khan ke jaise emote karo (emote like Shah Rukh Khan in the xyz scene) and so on. It was really funny. It was also scary because I came from a film family and was told all this. It was hard to imagine what people who came from non-film families went through," Tusshar told TOI in an interview.
Tusshar said that though times have changed but there used to be such people who would be easily found at production offices and sets to give free advice. "You’d almost start second-guessing everything you did. Gradually, I figured that if a film is good and one has been sincere, nothing can mess with your mind," he added.
On Tuesday, Tusshar shared a few stills on Instagram from the sets of his debut film, along with the poster and photos of the opening week's ticket that he has carefully preserved.
"#20yearsofmujhekucchkehnahai... of highs that made the struggles seem worthwhile and lows that were equally rewarding as lessons of life, from #mujhekucchkehnahai to #Laxmii and the journey feels like it's only begun! In gratitude for accepting me as a part of your universe, to have your love and for so many happy endings to the never ending battles of making stories come to life! No regrets whatsoever, despite the dizzy roller coaster ride in tinsel town, and miles to go before these milestones are done!#mujhekucchkehnahai," he wrote.

Talking about his journey, Tusshar said, "The two decades been like a rollercoaster. I have learnt a lot, achieved a lot, lots of hard work and learning. I can write a book on my last two decades. It has been rewarding and helped me grow as a human being. Made me stronger and work harder. I want to be in the industry all my life and that goes to show that the last two decades has made me a happier person."
