Abhishek Bachchan came to the screens with Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan after a break of two years. Recently during a summit, Abhishek recalled about the time when he was slapped by a lady outside a film theatre back in 2000. He said, "Yes, it is true...disgruntled customer I guess (laughs). It was a tough time,"
Back in 2012 he talked about this incident and told every detail in an episode of 'Yeh Hai Meri Kahaani'. He said,
"One moment I'll never forget ki meri ek film release hui thi 'Shararat' aur main Gaiety Galaxy gaya uske reactions dekhne ke liye. Ek lady thi woh picture dekh ke bahaar nikli interval mein aur unhonein bahaar aake, main concessions stand ke paas khada hua tha, aur unhonein mujhe baahar aake thappad maar diya, aur kaha ki, 'You're embarassing your family's name, stop acting."
It is great that an actor can talk about such an incident and we cannot imagine how hard it would have been for him at that time when this lady directly damaged his self-respect. Recently during an event when Abhishek was asked what his family’s reaction after watching Manmarziyaan was, he said,
"What did Aishwarya feel about Robbie? She said you are a very good actor (laughs). She enjoyed it, she enjoyed it very much. She'd been travelling, so she couldn't get to see it before release, she saw it after release. So, she liked it very much, thankfully, ya. The family has reacted positively. So, that's good. Yes, he (Amitabh Bachchan) loved it," the actor said.
