Abhishek Bachchan’s love for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is well-known. The duo has always given us some major relationship goals with their sizzling chemistry both in reel and real life.
During an interview with a daily, Abhishek, who has known Ash from last 17 years, was all praise for her. He revealed, “The first time Aishwarya and I met professionally was in 1999, during a photoshoot for Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke (2000). It was our first film together, and I expected a diva. Instead, she was disalarmingly wonderful. Over the 17 years that I have known her – of which we have been married for 10 – she has remained grounded.”
Speaking about Aishwarya’s professionalism, he revealed, “Aishwarya been a professional model and actor since the age of 18, and she’s enjoyed every bit of it. In the 90’s, when she was at the peak of her Miss World career and unanimously considered the most beautiful woman on earth, she chose to make her foray into films as an unglamorous girl in Mani Ratnam’s Iruvar (1997), I remember her telling me how, on her first day, she came out without her makeup in place and Mani handed her a bar of soap and said, ‘Wash it off.’ And she did.”
Recently, Aishwarya turned 44 and she visited Siddhivinayak Temple with daughter Aaradhya Bachchanand mom Vrinda Rai.
