Being in the limelight, fans are often fascinated by their celebs, who wish to live their life and some even wish to marry them. History has proved that some fans do get lucky as they marry their favourite celebs, but for some, it is just a distant dream. There was a time when Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had attended the premiere of their film, Raavan, and one of the actress' fans had asked if he could marry her and junior Bachchan's reaction to it was unmissable. It was in 2007 when Abhishek and Aishwarya had tied the knot and in 2021, the couple had completed 14 years of marital bliss.
To mark the completion of 14 years of their married life on April 20, 2021, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, in late anniversary posts, thanked everyone for the wishes and had given a glimpse of the celebration, respectively on their Twitter and Instagram profiles. Thanking everyone for their wishes, Abhishek, who was shooting in Lucknow for a project, had tweeted, "Thank you very much for all your wishes for Aishwarya and my wedding anniversary, yesterday. Please continue to stay safe, wear your mask and if possible, try not to go out. Thank you again." Aishwarya had posted a screenshot of the video call, posing with her little one, Aaradhya for her virtual anniversary celebration with Abhishek, and had captioned it with a few emojis.
The video of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from the premiere of Raavan is going viral over the internet. Abhishek and Aishwarya greeted their fans at the red carpet of the premiere, where one of the fans had held a placard asking Aishwarya to marry him. When it caught Abhishek's attention, he pointed towards Aishwarya, gave a serious reaction and said to the fan, "She married me, man". Abhishek's reply left Aishwarya in splits.
Scrolling through our Instagram feed, we also found some throwback pictures of the Bachchan clan from one of their Europe vacations. In the pictures, Jaya Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan could be seen exploring the streets of Europe and touristing around with shopping bags in their hands. While Big B sported a loose white shirt and jeans, Mrs Bachchan opted for a white kurti, printed skirt and a stole, Abhishek wore a pink shirt and grey pants and Aishwarya kept it simple-yet-gorgeous in a white and blue dress. As reported by the Hindustan Times, when and where exactly the pictures were taken is still unknown, it is allegedly from the time when the four of them went to London in 2010 for the premiere of Raavan, held at The BFI Southbank.
In a podcast with YouTuber, Ranveer Allahbadia, Abhishek Bachchan had recalled his memory of the time, when he first met Aishwarya Rai. Revealing that he was a production boy for his father, Amitabh Bachchan's film, Mrityudaata, when he first met Aishwarya, who was shooting for her debut Hindi film, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Abhishek had recalled, "I first met her when I was a production boy. There was a film my father was making called Mrityudata, and I had gone for the location recce to Switzerland because the company felt that because I had grown up in Switzerland in boarding school that I would be able to take them to nice locations. I had been there for a couple of days, all alone."
Revealing that it was his childhood friend, Bobby Deol, who had introduced him to his Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya co-star, Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan had continued, "And that's when a childhood friend of mine, Bobby Deol, was shooting for Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. And he got to know I was there, and said 'Hey, why don't you come over for dinner?' And that's the first time, when they were shooting, when I met Aishwarya." When asked if he had a crush on Aishwarya back then, Abhishek had admitted, "Who doesn't crush on her? I mean, come on, come on."
On the professional front, Abhishek and Aishwarya have worked together in the films, Raavan, Dhoom 2, Umrao Jaan, Guru, Kuch Naa Kaho and others.
