Abhishek Bachchan has always been the soft target of trolls on social media. From not being able to live up to his father Amitabh Bachchan's name to having a successful and beautiful wife like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, trolls leave no stone unturned to demean Abhishek in every way possible. But The Big Bull actor has always returned the favour to trolls in the most brutal way ever. His replies to trolls are so savage that people often end up lauding Abhishek and wonder how he handles the tricky situation in a very calm and composed manner without reducing himself to mud-slinging. Well, Abhishek has now revealed the secret behind his witty and savage replies to tackle the trolls.
"I have a very thick hide. My skin is a lot thicker than I thought it was. It's equally important to have a thick skin and know how to deal with negativity, but also you have to be sensitive enough to understand where it's coming from, why it's coming, and try to rectify it," Abhishek told Bollywood Hungama. "In life, you should have a sense of humour. We tend to take ourselves a bit too seriously. Life is serious enough as it is, learn to laugh at yourself," he added.
Talking about how he cleverly tackles the trolls, Abhishek said, "The minute you start hurling expletives at somebody, you've lost the argument. That's my sense of humour. My thing is that it is fair game. If you're going to take potshots at me I have every right to take a potshot back at you. I don't take it too seriously. Somebody cracks a good joke at my expense, and I think it's genuinely funny and they're not trying to be nasty, I applaud that. I think it's great. We should learn to laugh at ourselves."
Abhishek was recently pulled up by a troll after he had shared the trailer of The Big Bull on Twitter. The troll had said that he is a 'good for nothing actor' and doesn't deserve to be the husband of a beautiful wife like Aishwarya. To which, Abhishek had replied, "Ok. Thank you for your opinion. Just curious... who are you referring to because you've tagged a whole load of people? I know Ileana (Ileana D'Cruz) and Niki (Nikita Dutta) aren't married that leaves the rest of us (Ajay Devgn, Kookie Gulati, Sohum Shah) so...PS - will get back to you about Disney+Hotstar's marital status."
The troll had, later, deleted the tweet.
