In the on-going insider-outside debate, people have often called out star kids for their privileges. One such actor is Abhishek Bachchan. He is not only constantly compared to his father Amitabh, but is often subjected to social media trolling too.
Recently, a twitter user suggested that the ‘Guru’ actor is popular only because of his family and not for his skills as a performer. According to HT, the person even compared Abhishek’s follower count with actor Prachi Desai calling her more talented than him.

Abhishek, who has worked with Prachi in the film ‘Bol Bachchan’, replied to the person and said that the number of followers isn’t a criterion to measure success.
I assure you Mr Singhal the amount of followers you have on social media is by no means a barometer of acceptance or popularity or talent. My friend @ItsPrachiDesai is a very talented actor and doesn’t need social media to endorse that. Her work speaks for itself.

Abhishek has often been trolled in the past for his acting skills too. However, the actor never lets such things impact him negatively. As they say, ‘humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less’.
