The India vs Pakistan match on Saturday at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens was witnessed by celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar and Mukesh Ambani, who enjoyed it from the VIP stand. As scheduled, Amitabh Bachchan sang the National Anthem before the match and he was accompanied by son Abhishek Bachchan. But who called Abhishek Bachchan 'Least Known Celebrity' and why?
Well, Abhishek trended almost equal to India’s victory on Twitter but he was trolled on the micro-blogging site. On Monday morning, even two days after the match, the 40-year-old was still trending. Why?
Abhishek, who doesn’t mind responding to trolls, replied to a sarcastic tweet about his celebrity status. It turned into an argument soon with the actor’s 2008 turkey Drona involed:
On Sunday, Abhishek - never shy of engaging with trolls - responded to a derisive tweet about his celebrity status. It soon became a full-blown argument.
This is not the first time that Abhishek Bachchan is seen arguing in tweets.
In October, stand-up comic Karan Talwar made a provocative tweet: "Life is not about answers but questions. Where is my career going? Am I making enough money? Why am I still following @juniorbachchan?"
Abhishek responded: "Here are the answers: 1. Nowhere 2. For your skill set? Hell yeah! 3. I don't know. I unfollowed you years ago."

@mainbhiengineer haha. Good try! "Least known celebrity"?Isn't that a bit of a contradiction? Chalo at least you think I'm worthy of a tweet— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
@mainbhiengineer well a million tweets will most probably take you a lot more than 3 hrs and will cost you more than 300rs. U do the maths!!— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
@juniorbachchan Sir script can generate million tweets in secs, but unlike your films I want you to get the real love not the mechanical— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) March 20, 2016
@mainbhiengineer "I'm not a movie named Drona"? Of course not. you are Mainbhiengineer. That makes complete sense and logic! Well done.— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) March 20, 2016
