Big B will be next seen in the film titled Gulabo Sitabo, alongside Ayushmann Khurrana.
Meanwhile, Abhishek has been in news for his polite response to a troll who taunted him saying the actor is 'unemployed'. A Twitter user said, “What do you call a person who is happy on a Monday? Unemployed !". To which Abhishek had the most dignified response, “Nah! Disagree. Somebody who loves doing whatever they are doing."
On the work front, Abhishek was last seen on the big screen in 2018 in Anurag Kashyap's film, Manmarziyaan (2018) with Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. Well, his fans are looking forward to seeing him back on the silver screen again, soon.
