- Abhishek's verified handle is @juniorbachchan
- The parody account's Twitter handle is @juniorbacchhan
- Few seem to notice the misspelling in the parody account
So when Ms De tweets this, we don't really blame her:
Note that Ms De tagged Abhishek correctly. The tweet she was citing - or rather, retweeting from another account that was responding to it - was this double whammy on both the Gorakhpur by-poll result and Abhishek Bachchan's less than stellar film career.
Me: Dad, Opposition is getting stronger, see #Gorakhpur results !— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbacchhan) March 15, 2018
Dad: Tu bhi to 4-5 saal mein ek hit de deta hai, to kya tu superstar ban gaya ?
And if you are wondering how Abhishek Bachchan feels about routinely being sent up, it seems he's A-OK with it. This tweet, posted by the parody account earlier this month, appears to confirm what Ms De said about the actor's sense of humour.
Watching to see how many others fall victim to this account might well become a spectator sport - once you've been there and done that, like us and Shobhaa De, of course.
