Ash gives top priority to family

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is deeply concern about her family. Recently her father has recovered from illness and she makes sure that in between hectic schedule, she finds time to enquiry about his health and visits him. On the way back from Cannes, she halted for a day in Mumbai to spend time with her father and family. The next morning she took flight to Karjat where she is shooting with Akshay Kumar for Vipul Shah’s ‘Action Replay’.

"It was a long spell. Shooting in Karjat for prolonged periods is not new to Aishwarya. For Jodhaa Akbar she was stationed in Karjat for so long that it became her second home. But now circumstances have changed. After her father's illness, Aishwarya doesn't like to be away from Mumbai for prolonged periods. Even when she was shooting in the jungles of Kerala for Mani Ratnam's film, Aishwarya made sure she visited Mumbai to be with her father. Though she never lets it show in her work, being away from home is very difficult for her now and she would like to shoot as much as possible in Mumbai. Ironically, almost all her films are being shot outside the city," said a source.

The departure of some of the beautiful souls of film fraternizes scares Ash more about her father well-being and so when she gets time, she fly down to him.
