Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who made his debut in filmmaker JP Dutta's Refugee in 2000 with Kareena Kapoor, had said a woman slapped him outside a cinema hall for embarrassing his family's name.
After many box-office failures, Abhishek was tagged as a “flop actor” after he delivered 11 flop films in a row. He has always been criticised for hiding under the wings of his famous father Amitabh Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Abhishek has also been trolled on social media because of the same reason.
In an interaction at Jagran Film Summit, Abhishek recalled a traumatic incident when a woman slapped him outside a cinema hall for embarrassing his family's name.
"It was a tough time. I had once gone to Gaiety Galaxy to see how my film (Shararat) was doing; a lady came out and slapped me and said you're embarrassing your family's name, stop acting. Thankfully, I'm able to laugh about it today, but at that point, it was not a very good feeling," he said.
Abhishek is all set to release his next film, The Big Bull, on Disney Plus Hotstar. Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit have produced the film, and it features Ileana D'Cruz, Nikita Dutta and Sohum Shah.
