Being trolled on Twitter is par for the course if you are a celeb. But Abhishek Bachchan, it seems, has had enough. The star took to Twitter to respond to a troll who goes by the name of Bollywood G***u. And while the troll’s tweets were in plain bad taste, the Bollywood’s star’s responses were droll yet cutting.
Karan Talwar, who goes by the name Bollywood G***u, began by targeting the 39-year-old star: Life is not about answers but questions. Where is my career going? Am I making enough money? Why am I still following @juniorbachchan?
Abhishek’s comeback was just perfect: 1. Nowhere 2. For your skill set? Hell yeah! 3. I don’t know. I unfollowed you years ago.
A war of words followed immediately.
Karan Talwar: Looks like you and I have a lot in common. Except whatever little I’ve made of myself - it’s without my papas help.
Abhishek Bachchan: Wow!!! Great come back buddy. Never heard that before. Ouch! and unlike you.... Whatever I am today is because if my family. And am very proud of that.
Karan Talwar: What to do, this is why the career has gone nowhere. Sorry guys. I shouldn’t have said @juniorbachchan is famous because of his father. It’s actually his wife.
Abhishek Bachchan: Aww. That’s sweet thank you! Know what? You gained a few followers. Guess that means I made you a bit more famous! Congrats.
Karan Talwar:My gratitude for this undeserved notoriety will never die. Until I see Hera Pheri 3 and witness you ruin another franchise.
Twitterati sided with the actor, many targeting Karan for his embarrassing tweets.
This is not the first time, Abhishek had a face-off with a Twitter troll who posted a meme intending to make fun of Abhishek’s choice in movies, but made a mistake of including a picture of his daughter Aaradhya in the tweet.
The troll was immediately burned by Abhishek and other users. Abhishek tweeted, “…don’t like my movies? That’s cool. Will work harder to make movies you like. Bringing my daughter into it is NOT cool.”
The user deleted the tweet and apologised. The actor later said, “I do understand that both me and my wife and my parents (Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan) are public figures but my daughter is off limits. I am not here to talk about her. I said what I had to.”
