It's The 12th Anniversary Of Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan
It’s April 20 and one of Bollywood’s most adored couples are celebrating their 12 years of marriage. Can’t think of their names? Well, it’s Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The two got married in 2007 and with each passing year, their bond has only deepened.
Abhishek and Aishwarya have worked together in a number of movies like Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke (2000), Dhoom 2 (2006), Kuch Naa Kaho (2003) and Raavan (2010). But it was after the New York premiere of Guru (2007) in January that Abhishek proposed to Aishwarya in the balcony of their hotel room in New York. And how did Aishwarya respond? Of course, she said yes immediately.
Aishwarya recently shared about that moment when she got engaged. She said she was on the sets of her 2008 film, Jodhaa Akbar and the moment was absolutely ‘surreal’. Aishwarya even recalled the reactions of her director, Ashutosh Gowariker, and co-star Hrithik Roshan when it happened.
She said, “Ashutosh is like ‘you’re engaged’ and I am like ‘yeah’,” while Hrithik gave her a thumbs up. Aishwarya further added that the crew was shooting ‘Khwaja Mere Khwaja’ scene and how it all seemed a bizarre experience given that the song, too, was about a wedding. “We’re doing Khwaja Mere Khwaja, sitting as a bride, and I am like, Oh my God this is surreal, all happening on-screen, off-screen, this is bizarre,” she said.
The couple soon announced their engagement and soon tied the knot in a private ceremony at the Bachchan residence in Mumbai. On their anniversary, we take a look at some of their beautiful moments together.
