Days after he slammed a false media report that alleged (based on some pictures and videos) that he and wife Aishwarya Rai were going through a rough patch, actor Abhishek Bachchan took on more trolls online.

In a reply to his take down of India Forum’s now-deleted tweet and report, a Twitter user had written, “Not worked for last 3 years but has money for vacation ! How ?”

Abhishek replied, “Because, sir, I have several other businesses that I run apart from acting and producing movies. Sports being just one of them.” Abhishek is the owner of Pro Kabaddi League team Jaipur Pink Panthers and a co-owner of Indian Super League football team Chennaiyin FC.

In a separate incident, Abhishek responded to a person who wondered why director Anurag Kashyap had cast him in his next movie after having worked with the likes of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vicky Kaushal, Manoj Bajpayee and others. ”Yay, he called me a film star!!!” Abhishek replied. When the person said what he had ‘meant’ to say was that Abhishek was the ‘son of a movie star,’ Abhishek replied, “Oh… You ‘meant’… Chalo, I’ll consider it a Freudian slip.”

Earlier this week, Abhishek had responded to India Forum’s report that his wife Aishwarya wasn’t allowing their daughter Aaradhya to hold his hand because they’d fought. “With due respect. Please refrain from making up false stories. I understand the need to continuously post, but would really appreciate it if you could do so responsibly and without mischievous intent. Thank you,” Abhishek had written on Twitter, following which the post was deleted.

Abhishek is known to reply to online abuse against him and his family. In 2015, Abhishek had replied to a man who had brought in Aaradhya while talking about the actor’s career arc. “don’t like my movies? That’s cool. Will work harder to make movies you like. Bringing my daughter into it is NOT cool,” he had written.

In May, when a person on Twitter called him ‘useless’ Abhishek replied, “Walk a mile in my shoes, brother. If you even manage 10 steps I’ll be impressed. Judging by your tweets don’t think you’ll make it too far! Spend time improving yourself, don’t worry about others. God knows, we all have our own journeys. Get well soon.”

In April, someone made fun of him for living with his parents, to which the actor replied, “Yes! And it’s the proudest moment for me to be able to be there for them, as they have for me. Try it sometime, you might feel better about yourself.”

When a lady wondered why Aaradhya is always seen in public with her parents and never at school, Abhishek had this to say: “Ma’am, as far as I know… Most schools are shut for the week-end. She goes to school on the weekdays. Maybe you should try it considering you spelling in your tweet.”

Abhishek will make a return to the big screen after a two-year absence with Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan, scheduled for release on September 21.
