Abhishek Bachchan applied for a non-technical staff examination in Staff Selection Commission (SSC) that was held on April 30. No, it definitely was not actor Abhishek, but someone played a prank in the name of Junior Bachchan.

An admit card bearing the photo of actor Abhishek and his name appeared on the official website of SSC. The application is for SSC multi-tasking (non-technical) staff exam. If that was not enough, the application claimed Abhishek to be female.

The candidate obviously did not turn up for the exam, the centre for which was in Jaipur. It clearly appears to be a prank, but having appeared on the official website of SSC, it turned up to be an embarrassing incident for the concerned officials.

On the other side, Abhishek who was last seen in multi-starrer Housefull 3, has been off from news as there is no report on any of his upcoming movie. However, there is a buzz that he might play the male lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gustakhiyan starring Priyanka Chopra. See picture of the fake SSC admit card in the name of Abhishek:
