Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan showed in tweet responses how to shut down a troll with dignity and grace.

The actor, currently in Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital with COVID-19 as is his father Amitabh Bachchan, spotted a tweet from a hater shaming his career - "Ab kiske bharose baith ke khaoge? Abhishek, with his typically subtle wit, tweeted back, "Philhaal toh let let ke kha rahe hai dono ek saath hospital mein (For now, we are both lying down and eating together in hospital)."

Trolls don't usually get it - this one certainly didn't, replying that very few have the privilege of "let ke khana."

Needled again, Abhishek responded, "I pray that you are never in a situation like ours and that you remain safe and healthy. Thank you for your wishes, ma'am."

Earlier, the 44-year-old actor shared a photo of a gorgeous sun-set from the hospital and wrote: "Always believe that the sun will shine through! Always." In the comments section, Shweta had written: "May the force be with you."
