Amitabh Bachchan is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The actor is getting highly criticised for the letter he wrote to his granddaughters Navya Naveli Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan. Recently, stand up comedian Aditi Mittal trolled Amitabh Bachchan on Twitter for his letter and even said that Aishwarya Rai married a rock.
Abhishek Bachchan read that tweet but instead of getting angry, he handled it with great dignity. When Aditi Mittal said, ''Aishwarya had to m marrying a tree first so she could marry a rock (mince Abishek can't act no?)'' to which Abhishek Bachchan replied "@awryaditi the question mark at the end suggests that you have a doubt, mince, there is hope for me. Yay!" Aditi Mittal too, loved Abhishek Bachchan's sense of humour and said that he is a rockstar. Well, indeed he is a rockstar!

Big B wrote in his letter,''You both carry a very valuable legacy on your tender shoulders - Aaradhya, the legacy of yourpardadaji , Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan...and Navya, the legacy of your pardadaji , Shri H P Nanda.... "
''Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls...women ! And because you are women people will force their thinking, their boundaries on you.They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go.
Don't get married for any other reason other than you want to get married.People will talk. They shall say some terrible things. But that doesn't mean you have to listen to everyone. Never ever worry about - log kya kahenge
At the end of the day, you are the only one who will face the consequences of your actions, so don't let other people make your decisions for you. Navya - the privilege your name, your surname offers you, will not protect you from the difficulties you will face because you 're a woman.
Aaradhya - by the time you see and understand this, I may well not be around. But I think what I am saying today shall still be relevant.''
