Abhishek’s Life altering Horse riding Lessons

Abhishek Bachchan, who spent his weekend attending a horse-racing competition, says he learnt the biggest lesson of his life while taking riding sessions, he said,

When I was a kid, I used to go to Juhu beach along with five-six other children to learn riding. The first time I sat on a horse, the horse threw me off… My trainer asked me to immediately go and sit again on the horse and said that if you don’t go and sit now, the fear will reside inside you and you will never be able to ride a horse. That was one of the greatest life lessons you can ever have,

If you fall down or something you don’t achieve, get back and keep riding because that is the only thing that will give you the confidence,

The lesson learnt helped Abhishek while he was trying to get a foothold in the industry,

Sometimes your films don’t work, the first thing you do is to get back in front of the camera to keep the confidence going and to have the belief.

Abhishek debuted with ‘Refugee’ in 2000 followed flop films back to back, but after four years of his career, he finally made it with ‘Yuva’ and ‘Dhoom’ in 2004, bot the films were praised by critics and moviegoers, after that Abhishek has never looked back.
