Ever
since
the
debate
of
nepotism
started
on
social
media,
many
star
kids
of
B-town
were
attacked
by
trolls.
Among
others,
actor
Abhishek
Bachchan
also
faced
wrath
of
audience.
Naysayers
believe
that
Abhishek
had
it
easy,
because
he
is
the
son
of
megastar
Amitabh
Bachchan.
However,
the

Yuva

actor
has
a
different
story
to
tell.

In
his
recent
tete-a-tete
with
Rolling
Stones
India,
Abhishek
recalled
facing
rejections
several
times
before
making
his
Bollywood
debut
with
JP
Dutta’s

Refugee
.
He
said
that
he
has
seen
the
good
side
of
being
an
employed
actor,
and
he
has
also
seen
the
other
side
of
being
an
unemployed
actor.

“The
point
is,
you
can’t
take
things
personally…
At
the
end
of
the
day,
it’s
just
business.
If
your
films
are
not
doing
well,
nobody’s
going
to
put
money
on
you
to
make
another
film.
So,
I
do
believe
that
the
conversation
around
this
whole
nepotism
has
become
a
bit
convenient.
And
we’re
forgetting
certain
details.
I’ve…
It’s
taken
a
lot
of
effort,
a
lot
of
heartache
and
heartbreak
to
make
it
through
these
21
years.
It’s
not
been
easy,” said
Abhishek.

He
further
added
that
neither
Amitabh
has
made
a
film
for
him
nor
he
asked
someone
to
make
a
film
with
him.

“It
took
me
over
two
years
to
get
my
first
film.
A
lot
of
people
would
think
that
being
Mr.
Bachchan’s
son,
people
are
going
to
be
lined
up
around
the
block.
No,
they
weren’t.
I
spoke
to
almost
each
and
every
director
before
starting,
and
they
did
not
decide
to
work
with
me,
and
that’s
fine,”
added
Abhishek.

Reacting
to
Abhishek’s
interview,
Amitabh
Bachchan
took
to
the
micro-blogging
site
and
tweeted,
“One
doesn’t
achieve
anything
without
struggle.
I
am
proud
of
your
struggle,
I
am
very
happy
about
your
achievements.
I
hope
the
words
of
(your)
grandfather
and
blessing
be
by
our
side
for
generations
to
come
from
generation
to
generation.”
