A relationship is more about the little gestures than the grand and lavish surprises that we often plan for our partners. It is not always about gifting an expensive ring or taking your partner out to a fancy place for a date, but mostly the small moments like sharing a cup of coffee at your favourite hangout spot, watching sunrise/sunset holding each other’s hands, planning adventurous excursions, snuggling and cuddling on your Netflix binge-watch session, reliving childhood days with fun-filled activities, gorging on favourite street-food and a lot of such ideas, can make a lasting impression on your bae, which are understated when it comes to making your loved one feel special. But sometimes, things don’t go as per the plan. Let’s see how Abhishek Bachchan’s plan of a romantic date for his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had turned into a ‘disastrous’ one!

Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan stand firm and happily together even after close to fourteen years of their marital bliss and every picture of the lovebirds gives a glimpse of their everlasting love. Abhishek had tied the knot with Aishwarya in 2007 and a day before their wedding, the couple had created a memory of a lifetime. Lifecasting artist, Bhavna Jasra had posted a picture of Abhishek and Aishwarya, twinning in white as they got their couple clasp cast. Bhavna had captioned the post as “From meeting you a day before your wedding for casting your couple clasp with Abhishek to seeing you as mother of Aaradhya when we made her masterpiece for her 1st birthday, I am happy that I helped freeze those happy memories for you.”
Nine years after tying the knot, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had spoken about their married life in a 2016 interview with the Vogue. When asked to reveal the most romantic thing he had done for her, Abhishek had recalled how his most romantic date plan turned into a disastrous one. Abhishek had said, “So this is for men everywhere—don't believe that bit about a candlelight dinner on the beach being the most romantic thing in the world. I tried that for our anniversary [in 2009] in the Maldives, and it was a disaster.”
Recalling what went wrong and the coolest thing about his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan had continued, “First of all, the wind keeps putting the candle out. Second, there's sand in your food so it tastes like crap. I'm here to tell you guys, just don't do it. I think the most romantic, coolest thing about my wife is that I can spend hours just shooting the breeze with her. We can talk all sorts of rubbish and have an in-depth conversation for hours. We've actually spent entire nights just talking. I think that's the most romantic thing you can do for your wife, really—to just be there for her, make yourself available, share and listen.” (Also Read: Sameera Reddy And Hubby, Akshai Varde's Flirtatious Banter Perfectly Describes Healthy Communication)

In a post-wedding interview with the Hindustan Times, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had recalled the moment when it had sunk in that she was married. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya had flown to Bora Bora for their honeymoon and it was in the flight where she was first addressed as Mrs Bachchan. Recalling her reaction, Aishwarya had said, “It was on the flight to our honeymoon in Bora Bora. The stewardess welcomed me on-board saying, ‘Welcome, Mrs Bachchan.’ And Abhishek and I just looked at each other and burst out laughing! And it hit me, I’m married! I’m Mrs Bachchan!” (Also Read: Virat Kohli Expresses The Feeling Of Becoming A Father After The Birth Of His 'Baby Girl', Vamika)
