When flight-bound Abhishek Bachchan pleaded for mercy... Zeenews Bureau

Mumbai: If Simon Cowell thought he had it tough listening to some awful singing on the talent shows he judges, he’s yet to step into Bollywood superstar Abhishek Bachchan’s shoes. Or should we say seat.

Boarding a flight this morning, AB was treated to the disorganized vocal chords of a co-passenger, bent on screeching a tune to his MP3 player’s music.

Miffed with the music-murdering co-traveller, @juniorbachchan (Abhishek’s twitter handle) tweeted: “Dear man sitting on the seat in front of me and singing LOUDLY with ur headphones on. It’s a long flight.. Show some mercy!”

As if he’d read the Little B’s tweet, the tone-deaf rockstar took it up a notch, leaving AB with little option but to voice his desperation on the popular social networking site. He tweeted: “Oh god!! He just went into a hardcore aalaap!!! If there ever was a moment for the almighty to strike down with all his might… IT’S NOW!!”

The flight has since taken off and we can only wish AB a relatively pleasant journey. We are, of course, open to gifting him a set of handy ear-plugs the next time he’s here. @juniorbachchan, are you listening?
