The actor told The Times of India that his work from that period contains poor costume choices and dated hairstyles.
The Love Aaj Kal star revealed: "I think cinema, particularly with changing trends and cable TV and satellite rights, serves as a reminder of our fashion bloopers. They'll always come back to haunt us."
However, the film celebrity went on to suggest that watching his earlier projects does have its benefits.
"It makes me cringe a little bit sometimes, but only up to a point," he said. "But seriously, I watch it and I think I worked very hard. I was laboriously dancing away in various songs. The high jeans, the hair, I know - But it reminds us of the hard work we've done."
The second-generation performer, who earlier announced that he enjoys being recognised, claimed that Bollywood was previously regarded solely for its kitsch elements.
"I think it's only very recently that Hindi films have become quite cool and we've become fashion-wise quite competent," added the Agent Vinod actor-producer.
