When I had told them I wanted to be an actor, mere papa ne mujhe bohot peeta tha. To main jhoot bolke aagaya tha. But then, I met a gay person here, and he behaved with me inappropriately, I was really scared and I ran back to my home. I looked at myself in the mirror to realise what had happened and the first thing I did was book my tickets back. That too in a general compartment."

Further revealing what exactly happened, Abhishek said, ''When I went there, he was acting as if today he will make me sign the show. I wondered if I had given such a bad audition, how did I get selected. At first, I chought, would it be because of the looks but all of that was a fake setting. There was no audition happening for a genuine show.''
