Abhishek Bachchan was mocked on Twitter as someone not worthy to be in the league of actors previously cast in Anurag Kashyap’s films


Abhishek Bachchan is single-handedly destroying trolls on Twitter. On Tuesday evening, the actor spotted a few attempts to mock him on Twitter as someone not worthy to be in the league of actors previously cast in Anurag Kashyap’s films. The junior Bachchan dealt with them with so much calm and oh, sarcasm too. Mr Kashyap tweeted to announce that his upcoming film with Abhishek – Manmarziyan – will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, when an user wrote: “From KK Menon to John Abraham to Abhay Deol to Manoj Bajpayee to Nawazuddin Siddiqui to Ronit Roy to Vicky Kaushal… All great choices. But *** Abhishek Bachchan? Are you suffering from KJo syndrome? It’s all about loving the film stars?”



In a sarcasm-laden tweet, the 42-year-old actor wrote: “Yay! He called me a film star,” over which Abhishek and his friends also had a good laugh on the conversation thread. Meanwhile, the hater resurfaced to clarify: “I meant ‘son of film star’. KJo ke friend circle me aane se choices bhi KJo type ho gayi hai… Ranbir, Abhishek… what next? Tusshar Kapoor?” This time, Abhishek’s tone appeared to be rather firm as he tweeted: “Oh… you “meant”… Chalo, I’ll consider it a Freudian slip. And BTW Tusshar would be a great choice.”

Abhishek Bachchan is one of Twitter’s favourite actors when it comes to trolling celebrities. He is often at the receiving end of offensive tweets citing the lack of successful movies on his resume. On Tuesday evening, another Twitter follower appeared to enquire about the finances behind his recently concluded family vacation when Abhishek set the record straight with this tweet: “Sir, I have several other businesses that I run apart from acting and producing movies. Sports being just one of them.” Abhishek co-owns the football team Chennaiyin Football Club with MS Dhoni and Vita Dani.
