Talking about Aishwarya and Abhishek, the duo got married in a frand wedding ceremony in 2007. They have been married for over 13 years and has a daughter named Aaradhya. Their wedding ceremony was a private affair at the Bachchan’s house and the duo looked gorgeous. Many pictures from Abhi-Aish wedding are already on the internet that shows Aishwarya dressed in a south Indian outfit for her special day.
Talking about how she felt when she first heard someone address her as ‘Mrs Bachchan,’ Aishwarya opened up in an interview soon after her marriage and had said that she laughed along with Abhishek. In the interview, Aishwarya said, “It was on the flight to our honeymoon in Bora Bora. The stewardess welcomed me on-board saying, ‘Welcome, Mrs Bachchan.’ And Abhishek and I just looked at each other and burst out laughing! And it hit me, I’m married! I’m Mrs Bachchan!.”
On the professional fornt, Aishwarya will be next seen in Mani Ratnam’s film Ponniyin Selvan. Reportedly, in the film, the actress will be seen in a double role. Aishwarya, who has previously worked with Ratnam in films like Iruvar, Guru and Raavan, had said she doesn’t have to think much before saying yes to the filmmaker. “It is definitely an experience I’m looking forward to for multiple reasons. Mani is my guru and he is one of the most amazing and brilliant directors of our country.”
“I’ve had the honour, privilege and joy of working with him right in the beginning of my career and several times later. It’s an easy yes to work with that kind of cinematic brilliance,” the actress added.
Jointly produced by Mani Ratnam and Lyca Productions, the film was supposed to release in October last year but COVID19 happened. The star cast of the film resumed the shoot in January and the makers are eyeing a release later this year.
