On Wednesday, Aditi Mittal, a stand-up comedian, expressed her opinion, quoting a tweet on legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan's letter to his granddaughters -- Navya Naveli and Aaradhya Bachchan.

She wrote, 'Aishwarya had to marry a tree first so she could marry a rock (mince Abhishek can't act no?)'.

A lot of people were irked with the fact that the legendary superstar had, in his letters, spoken only about the contributions of the men in the family and did not even mention the contributions by the women. While a lot of people saw it as promotional activity for the actor's upcoming movie Pink, others thought that it was really nice of Mr Bachchan to write to his grand-daughters and encourage them to take decisions despite societal pressures or 'Log Kya Kahenge'.

And while everyone was expressing their views on the matter, Mittal too did the same.

In her tweet, Mittal referred to reports from 2007 which said that Abhishek Bachchan’s wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was made to marry a tree in a sacred Hindu ceremony by his family.

And because social media is such an accessible platform and things can't be brushed under the carpet, the tweet made its way to the person concerned-- Abhishek Bachchan.

The actor, instead of being rude or going harsh with his comments on Mittal who poked fun at his acting talent and called him a 'stone', was extremely sporting.

He wrote, '@awryaditi the question mark at the end suggests that you have a doubt, mince, there is hope for me. Yay!'.

In fact, Abhishek's response was so epic, it prompted Mittal to acknowledge that he was a total rockstar.

And soon after, the two got into a conversation about the reported 'marrying the tree' ritual.

Here's how the conversation unfolded.

And Abhishek refuted the story that was published in the media in a classy way.

Finally, taking everything in the right spirit, this is what Mittal said.

You certainly are a rock star, Abhishek. Never change.
