Abhishek Bachchan has responded in his customary style to a Twitter user who described his ‘so-called acting’ in The Big Bull as ‘third rate’. The Big Bull, a re-imagining of the life of tainted stockbroker Harshad Mehta, released on Disney+ Hotstar on Thursday.
Abhishek is known to respond to his critics online. He said in a recent interview that by attacking him, they open themselves up for attack as well. “It’s fair game,” he said.
ABHISHEK GIVES SASSY REPLY
The netizen called Abhishek’s performance in The Big Bull disappointing and stated that Pratik Gandhi and Hansal Mehta’s web series, Scam 1992, was far more superior than the Abhishek Bachchan film.
The Twitter user wrote, “As usual @juniorbachchan doesn’t disappoint you with his 3rd rate so called acting in a poorly scripted & badly filmed #TheBigBull @pratikg80 & #Scam1992 are far superior by miles.”

Both – Scam 1992 and the Big Bull – are inspired by the life of Harshad Mehta, an Indian stockbroker known for his involvement in the 1992 Indian securities scam, one of the biggest stock market scams in the history.
Comparisons have been drawn between Scam 1992 and The Big Bull since the beginning. Before the release of the Abhishek Bachchan film, a Twitter user asked Abhishek why should he watch The Big Bull when he has already watched Scam 1992. In response to the tweet, Abhishek wrote, “I’m in it” with a winking emoji.
