Abhishek Bachchan on Monday slammed a web portal for publishing a report that claimed that he and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had a fight as they returned to Mumbai from a vacation in London. Abhishek tweeted directly to the news portal that had published the story, asking them to ‘refrain from making up false stories.’ Aishwarya and Abhishek returned to Mumbai on

“With due respect. Please refrain from making up false stories. I understand the need to continously post, but would really appreciate it if you could do so responsibly and without mischievous intent. Thank you,” Abhishek wrote in reply to India Forums’ tweet, which has since been deleted.

The original report suggested - based on a video of Abhishek and Aishwarya arriving at Mumbai airport - that the Bollywood couple was fighting.

In the video, the couple’s daughter, Aaradhya, can be seen clinging to her mother as Abhishek walks at a slight distance from them. The report claimed that Aishwarya would not let Aaradhya hold her father’s hand. The site took down the story after Abhishek’s tweet.

Abhishek and Aishwarya had united in London after he was done with attending the FIFA World Cup in Russia with father Amitabh Bachchan, niece Navya Nanda and nephew Agastya. Aishwarya had been in Paris for a work appointment which she’d coupled with sightseeing along with Aaradhya. Aishwarya also shared a family photo from London where the three of them can be seen. She had shared another photo of Aaradhya with grandpa Amitabh Bachchan.

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. Meanwhile, Aishwarya will soon be seen in Fanney Khan.
