Abhishek Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan celebrate their tenth marriage anniversary today. With happiness, sorrow, triumph, failure and numerous moments to cherish, it surely has been a precious journey. Blessed with a lovely daughter, the two are one of the happiest couples in B-Town.
However, Abhishek and Aishwarya’s love story was not like any other. In fact, they never really dated. Abhishek proposed Aishwarya when work on ‘Guru’ was on. But were you aware of the moment when he realised he was in love with Ash?
It happened on the sets of Karan Johar’s ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’ when he was filming for an intensely emotional sequence. We found an old interview of the actor wherein he shares the particular moment. (Also Read: No lavish bash to celebrate Aishwarya Rai-Abhishek Bachchan’s 10th wedding anniversary)
”There was this scene, which was actually my favourite scene in ‘KANK’. There is a scene where I come back and tell Rani (Mukerji) that my father has passed away. And I give her a photograph and I take out this photograph and tell her that he wanted you to have it… I saw it and it was my father’s photograph. After Karan said ‘cut’ I went to the side and I just broke down… I also realised, the first time I told somebody that you know, I think I’m in love with Aishwarya,” he said.
So now you know, Karan Johar was the first one to know about junior Bachchan’s love for the beauty queen. Not only that, he even played Cupid later!
“Karan was the Cupid who kept putting in the idea that she is fantastic. You both will look so wonderful together. She looks so glamorous in the house when she walks,” Abhishek laughed.
That be the sweetest love story! We wish you both a very happy anniversary and pray that you have each other’s back forever!
