Abhishek Bachchan has shared a meme on Marjaavaan where the man looks exactly like him.

Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan has often proved he is coolest in the industry when it comes to taking jokes and responding to online trolling or memes. In his latest, Abhishek has shared a fresh Marjaavaan meme, popular online ever since the trailer of Sidharth Malhotra-Riteish Deshmukh-Tara Sutaria-starrer was launched.

The meme compares a man in Marjaavaan trailer to a beefed-up Abhishek and the actor has now shared the meme and tweeted, “Thank you! Went full #beastmode in the gym for this one. Jokes apart. That’s not me! But wish the entire team of #Marjaavaan all the best. Looking great. @Riteishd @SidMalhotra @zmilap @nikkhiladvani”

Directed by Milap Zaveri, Marjaavaan is about Sidharth’s character who has a nice life with his girlfriend (played by Tara) till the time that his path crosses with that of Riteish Deshmukh’s villain. Riteish plays a dwarf in the film that has been written by Milap. Asked about comparisons with Shah Rukh Khan who recently played a dwarf in Aanand L Rai’s Zero, Ritiesh said, “Kamal sir (Haasan) did it at a time when technology wasn’t so advanced. Shah Rukh sir I watched live when he was shooting for Zero and quickly realised I couldn’t match them, so I didn’t even try.”

Marjaavaan is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series) and Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani (Emmay Entertainment).

The Big Bull is directed by Kookie Gulati and will reportedly feature Ileana D’Cruz as the female lead.
