It's been a wonderful journey this far. I'm not one to look back and dwell on the past, but, once in a while it's nice to remember the good and (sometimes) bad times."

Abhishek, whose parents Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan are Bollywood veterans, thanked the people "who had faith in him" and wrote: "#RoadTo20 is an attempt to take you through these 20 years of my life as an actor. Maybe relive some of the memories and experiences. It is a celebration of all the people that have made all this possible. The countless people who had faith and belief in a tall, slightly awkward, foreign returned 22-year-old boy, who had a lifelong dream... One that he has spent the last 20 years living."
