Who said it was easy being a starkid? Ask Abhishek Bachchan! The Manmarziyaan actor made some touching yet shocking revelations about the things he faced despite being the son of Amitabh Bachchan. Not just rejections from film directors, he even had to face the ire of the public.
In a startling revelation, Abhishek revealed that he was slapped by an elderly lady outside the cinema hall for "ruining the family image". In a candid chat with critic Mayank Shekhar at the ongoing Jagran Film Summit in Mumbai, the actor recalled an incident where he was once slapped by a woman outside a movie theatre after the screening of his movie Shararat, that had released back then.
"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.
