Abhishek described the incident saying that he had once gone to a cinema hall to see how his film 'Shararat' was doing when a lady slapped him saying that he was embarrassing his family's name, and asked him to stop acting. The actor revealed that he laughs about the incident now but at that point of a time, it was not a very good feeling.

'Shararat' was a film about Rahul (Abhishek Bachchan) who was asked to stay at an old age home as a part of his punishment of community service. He is reluctant at first but eventually gets attached to the elderly living at the old age home. 'Shararat' starred Hrishitaa Bhatt, Amrish Puri, Tinu Anand, Helen, AK Hangal, Dara Singh, Viju Khote, Shubha Khote and Mohnish Bahl to name a few.

What's next for Abhishek Bachchan

Abhishek Bachchan made a comeback of sorts with his most recent release 'Manmarziyaan' starring Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu. The film was helmed by Anurag Kashyap. The film has been a part of a controversy wherein members of a certain community objected to the smoking scene in the film and demanded the film be banned.
