Controversies• Just after his marriage, a background dancer and model, Jhanvi Kapoor tried to attempt suicide outside his house "Prateeksha," by cutting her wrist.

However, later her claims were rejected and she was considered a fraud.
• His honeymoon trip with his wife, Aishwarya Rai, in Florence annoyed a lot of people including Mani Ratnam, director of Guru, who was miffed with Abhishek for missing the promotional campaign, and Rani Mukherji because it delayed the shooting of her film Laaga Chunari Mein Daag.
