Abhishek Bachchan reveals how he stays calm in the face of online abuse

‘I have a very thick hide. My skin is a lot thicker than I thought it was,’ said Abhishek Bachchan

Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan is one of the handful of people in the industry who always knows how to put trolls in their place.

Opening up about the online abuse he faces and how he deals with the haters, the actor told Bollywood Hungama in an interview that he has developed a thick skin.

“I have a very thick hide. My skin is a lot thicker than I thought it was. It’s equally important to have a thick skin and know how to deal with negativity, but also you have to be sensitive enough to understand where it’s coming from, why it’s coming, and try to rectify it,” he shared.

“In life, you should have a sense of humour. We tend to take ourselves a bit too seriously. Life is serious enough as it is, learn to laugh at yourself,” he went on to say.

Speaking about how he manages to clap back at trolls, Bachchan said: “That’s my sense of humour. My thing is that it is fair game. If you’re going to take potshots at me I have every right to take a potshot back at you. I don’t take it too seriously.”

“Somebody cracks a good joke at my expense, and I think it’s genuinely funny and they’re not trying to be nasty, I applaud that. I think it’s great. We should learn to laugh at ourselves,” he added.
