Being a celebrity has its own perks and cons. Along with the people’s love and praise, comes responsibility and liability. Bollywood stars are often in the public eye, which also leads them to massive trolling on the Internet. The social media era has permitted each person with a power of opinion, which sometimes goes out of hands and trolls take the benefit of it and miss no moment to target the actors.
Abhishek Bachchan, who is currently admitted to the Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai along with his father Amitabh Bachchan after testing positive for Coronavirus, faced a nasty troll who asked him how he will ‘feed’ himself now that his father, actor Amitabh Bachchan is admitted to a hospital.
“Your father admitted in hospital... Ab kiske bharose baith ke khaoge? (who will feed you now)” the troll wrote on Twitter. Rather than getting offended or hurt, Abhishek gave it back to the troll with a warm and classy reply. He wrote: “Filhaal toh let ke kha rahe hain dono saath aspatal mein (right now both of us are eating lying on our backs at the hospital).”
To which, the troll wrote back: “Get well soon sir... Har kisi ki kismat me let ke khana kaha (not everyone has the good fortune to eat while lying on their backs).” Reacting to the same, Junior Bachchan gave a graceful reply as he wrote: “I pray that you are never in a situation like ours and that you remain safe and healthy. Thank you for your wishes, ma’am.”
Abhishek’s classy reply is winning the Internet as fans lauded his kind reply.
Last week, Bollywood’s Bachchan family got hit by the novel Coronavirus. Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aradhya had tested positive for COVID-19. Other members of the family also underwent tests and Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Nanda, Navya Naveli and Agastya Nanda tested Covid-19 negative but were under quarantine for two weeks. Big B’s staff also underwent tests for Coronavirus and 26 staff members that worked in close contact with the Bachchan family tested negative for the novel virus.
In a sign of relief, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan along with daughter Aradhya tested negative for Coronavirus, and the mother-daughter duo was discharged from the Nanavati Hospital and allowed to go home.
However, Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan continue to remain in the hospital.
