Can troll shutter Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Manmarziyaan’ make up for these 5 controversies?


The upcoming Anurag Kashyap directorial flick ‘Manmarziyaan’ has been applauded ever since its trailer launch. With a fairly good response, it is one of the most anticipated movies of 2018 that features Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan.

Junior B is coming back on screen after a two-year gap and if we go by the trailer’s response, he seems promising for the role. While Abhishek has always been a star element, the actor has very rarely been in the headlines for his movies or projects. All in all the Guru star has garnered attention for his active presence on social media and being caught by the shutterbugs for controversial behaviour in public.

Here are five instances that scooped out publicity for Abhishek Bachchan.

Laughing at Rajan Nanda’s funeral

On August 5, Shweta Nanda’s father-in-law Rajan Nanda passed away. A prayer meet conducted for the same had the entire Bachchan clan present. It was during this event that Abhishek was spotted smiling, and the trolls attacked the actor all over social media.

Abhishek Bachchan and Internet trolls

Abhishek Bachchan may have missed his shot at movies, but he surely knows to nail comebacks at trolls over social media. Here are a few instances:

When a Twitter user asked a series of life questions including, ‘why are they still following AB on Twitter’ and those whole star kid debate.

When a user posted a meme of him with baby Aaradhya watching his films.

When Rajkummar Rao expressed what would happen if there were no surnames in the world and an NDTV reporter fell for the Twitter drama.

Arguments with wife Aishwarya

On their return from a vacation in London, the paparazzi at the airport caught the duo having a heated exchange alongside baby Aaradhya.

Tiff with Kapil Sharma

It was during Houseful 3 promotions when Kapil Sharma asked Abhi that in order to meet Amitabh Bachchan, they came at the main gate, but which gate they would require to come form in order to meet him. Abhishek simply answered, “Nobody comes to meet me”.

Snubbed Wedding list

The Bachchans are known to be friends with Bollywood biggies. But the royal wedding of Ash and Abhi made news for a snubbed guest list. Apparently the family had left out Rani Mukerji, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and even Hrithik Roshan.
