Amitabh, who sang the national anthem before the match, was accompanied by his son Abhishek Bachchan at the stadium. Twitterati, however, grabbed the opportunity to mock Abhishek's 'celebrity' status.

Never shy of taking on the trolls, Abhishek Bachchan gave fitting replies to the tweets. Here are the conversations that ensued:

Junior Bachchan has a history of battling the trolls. In June last year, a Twitter user shared a meme that joked about how Aaradhya would not like his movies such as 'Drona' and 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' and wonder why her mother, Aishwarya, married him. Abhishek, who is known to take humour in the right spirit, hit back at the troll for dragging his little daughter into the picture. (Read Abhishek Bachchan's fitting reply to the troll)

    As another comment on FB stated, if being a star kid is the only criteria, then Arjun Tendulkar, Sewhag's kids, Imran's kids etc should have also been on the podium. Abhishek may be a nice, fun guy and all. But it shows his class when HE ACCEPTS these, "honours" that dont befit him.

    Sorry, I wouldn't call Abhishek's replies, "fitting". You're just pampering his ego. For me, @mainbhiengineer is the winner in the war of words. Abhishek was just being defensive. And it's the truth. What has he achieved on his own to stand besides legends such as Sachin, Akram, his Dad, Imran etc.? If it was a free for all celebrity fest, why wasn't Aftab, Sushant Singh etc. on the podium too (By the way, saw that Abhishek wasn't even on the podium... hehhee.)
