The India-Pakistan World T20 clash at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday was a star-studded affair with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Amitabh Bachchan, Mukesh Ambani, among others, in attendance.
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:
Big B paid for Aftab Shivdasani's ticket so that Abhishek Bachchan isn't the least known celebrity in the stadium— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) March 19, 2016
@mainbhiengineer haha. Good try! "Least known celebrity"?Isn't that a bit of a contradiction? Chalo at least you think I'm worthy of a tweet— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
@juniorbachchan Sir honestly I think, u r worthy of not just a tweet but a million tweets. But not worthy enough to get my 3hrs & 300 rupees— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) March 20, 2016
@mainbhiengineer well a million tweets will most probably take you a lot more than 3 hrs and will cost you more than 300rs. U do the maths!!— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
@juniorbachchan Sir script can generate million tweets in secs, but unlike your films I want you to get the real love not the mechanical— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) March 20, 2016
Sir @juniorbachchan you can totally expect sense and logic from me, I'm not a movie named 'Drona'.— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) March 20, 2016
@mainbhiengineer "I'm not a movie named Drona"? Of course not. you are Mainbhiengineer. That makes complete sense and logic! Well done.— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
@manishbpl1 although untrue.... Even that amount can work on me. Sorry.— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
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)
On the Bollywood front, Abhishek Bachchan will be next seen in 'Housefull 3'.
