Ash flies off to celebrate dadâ€™s birthday
Former miss world and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Bachchan’s father Krishnaraj Rai's celebrated his 70th birthday on Thursday. Unfortunately, he was not keeping well for quite sometime and Ash who was shooting in the deep jungle of Kochi flew off to be by the side of her ail father on that special day.
Says a source, "Although Aishwarya has been her thoroughly professional self throughout the time when her father has been undergoing treatment for a serious sickness her heart has been in Mumbai with her father. When Mani heard it was her father's birthday he let her go without a second thought."
The affair was not a grand one as Mr Rai is not keeping well and only close family members were present. Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan dropped to wish Ash's father. Abhishek was expected to fly in on Thursday but he couldn't do so and sent best wishes to father-in-law. Abhi from deep jungle conveyed the message, "I'd love to be there because Aishwarya's parents are not my in-laws. They're a second set of parents that God has blessed me with. Unfortunately, much as I tried I can't get away from here even for a few hours."
