Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek have quite the whirlwind of a romance story. Love bloomed between the two birds during the filming of Guru, and in 2007, they were married. The couple has a seven-year-old daughter, Aaradhya now who is as popular as Aishwarya.
In a recent interview with a local news channel, she recalled the moment when Abhishek proposed to her, and their sudden engagement. “He proposed, which was amazing! And it happened like really suddenly, she said. I didn’t even know there is something called a ‘roka’ ceremony. We are South Indians, so, I don’t know what a ‘roka’ is and suddenly there is this call from their house to ours; we are coming’.” To make matters more confusing, Aishwarya’s father also was out of town.
She added, “Abhishek was like we are all coming and I can’t stop dad. We are on our way. We are coming to your place’. I’m like, Oh my God!’ So, this ‘roka’ is happening with a call to my father, who is out of town.” But, she said, ‘Mum is here, we are here. They’ve all arrived home, they are emotional and all. I’m like, Oh my God, it’s happening.’ Then it’s like, come on, let’s go home’. I’m like, Mom, okay... is this...is this an engagement? Like, what just happened?’”
Abhishek and his wife Ash have worked together in films like ‘Kuch Naa Kaho’, ‘Umrao Jaan’ and ‘Guru’. Much to the excitement of fans, Abhishek and Aishwarya will light up the screens again with the film ‘Gulab Jamun’.
The sweet couple of B-town rang in the New Year with a bang. They holidayed with their daughter, Aaradhya and shared a few pictures from their New Year vacation on social media. Abhishek took to Instagram to share a photo with wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya from their seaside exit.
