After his hiatus and since the release of Manmarziyaan, Abhishek Bachchan has been positively vocal about his success and failure in the film industry. The actor has spoken about wanting to do more as an actor, and taking a step back to decide what kind of films he wants to do in the future.

Abhishek, in a chat at Jagran Film Summit, described a particularly tough moment in his career when he got slapped outside a cinema hall. Junior Bachchan narrated an incident where he received a slapped during the screening of his 2002 film, Shararat for “embarrassing his family’s name”.

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.
