Anniversary Special: Rare and unseen photos of Ash-Abhi’s wedding
Six years back on this particular day, Bollywood’s most cherished couple Aishwarya Rai daughter of Vrinda Rai and Krishnaraj Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, son of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan entered into matrimony amidst fanfare.
Aishwarya and Abhishek’s marriage was highly covered by media and it was considered as the wedding of the season. It was not love at first sight as usually happens but yes there was an attraction between the two hearts.
Going down the memory lane, Abhishek Bachchan recalled his first meeting with Aishwarya. “The first time I met Aishwarya was in August 1997. I was on a recce for my father's film, Mrityudata , in Switzerland, and she was shooting for her first film, Aur Pyar Ho Gaya , with my dear friend Bobby Deol", says Abhishek Bachchan.
"I remember one evening Bobby invited me over to his hotel for dinner and Aishwarya and the rest of the unit were there. That was the first time I actually met her, although I had obviously seen her before, since she was Miss World and all that".
Talking about the moment when he knew Ash is the one with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life, Abhishek says, "I don't remember if there was any such moment, actually, which is weird, but it always just felt right. If you ask her, she will tell you the same thing – that the minute we came together, we both knew that this was something for keeps. So, there wasn't just this 'one' defining moment, it always felt perfect!"
Four years after their nuptial, Ash and Abhi was blessed with a cute daughter, named Aaradhya.
We wish Aishwarya and Abhishek a very blissful future ahead!
