Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan slammed a news portal for ‘making up false stories’ about his alleged fight with his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The 41-year-old actor condemned the report, which was posted by a publication called India Forums, for claiming that he and his wife Aishwarya had a fight at the Mumbai airport when they were returning from their vacation in London.
On July 23, after the India Forums posted a story suggesting a fight between Abhishek Bachchan and his wife Aishwarya Rai at Mumbai airport, the actor took to Twitter and condemned the ‘false’ report in a tweet. In fact, he had schooled the portal for fabricating the story that didn’t actually happen.
This is what Abhishek Bachchan has tweeted slamming the portal for making up false stories.
With due respect. Please refrain from making up false stories. I understand the need to continously post, but would really appreciate it if you could do so responsibly and without mischievous intent. Thank you.

The said story was based on a video of the Bachchans arriving at the Mumbai airport from their London vacation, in which Aaradhya, hugging her mom tightly, walked a little behind Abhishek.
In the video, Abhishek somehow aggressively tried to hold Aaradhya’s hand but was unsuccessful, after which the couple shared a slight stare at each other. Abhishek was then seen a bit flustered and walks little ahead of the duo, but then seems to be seeking Aaradhya’s attention, who smiles at her dad and then hugs her mom even tighter.
You can see the video below:
While it could be a normal incident in a family and nothing much like a fight, the video has fuelled the news portal to report about a fight between the couple. The report claimed that following a fight, Aishwarya did not let Abhishek take Aaradhya’s hand while walking out of the airport. The story was, however, said to have pulled down from the website after Abhishek Bachchan condemned it.
On the Internet, Abhishek Bachchan is straightforward when it comes to an attack on his family, especially his daughter Aaradhya.
In the past too, he has silenced trolls who tried to attack his daughter. For him, everything was okay until people brought Aaradhya in the picture, and this was clearly shown at one occasion in 2015 when he had a showdown of sorts with an Internet user trolling him for his choice of films. This is what Abhishek had replied when one troll said that he doesn’t like his movies.
@Mayankaryan084 don’t like my movies? That’s cool. Will work harder to make movies you like. Bringing my daughter into it is NOT cool.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Jr Bachchan has been a target of attack online. Earlier too, he was mocked for staying with his parents, going on a holiday during non-vacation days of school, and other instances.
