Abhishek Bachchan's perspective towards work has changed after his daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan's birth. The actor, who likes to keep his personal life private, for the first time, opened up on working after becoming a father, and how his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, allowed him to work while she takes care of their baby girl.
For the unversed, Abhishek Bachchan had first met his ladylove, Aishwarya Rai, in Switzerland during the shooting of her film, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya. He was instantly smitten by her beauty, just like all of us. And while Aishwarya is the synonym of beauty and grace, Abhishek is known for his wit and fantastic acting skills. Together, this beautiful union have been making our hearts flutter since 2007.
In an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, Abhishek talked about his family's role in his successful career. The actor shared that his wife, Aishwarya lifted emotional baggage off his shoulder when she stepped in to take care of their daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan. The actor said:
"A lot of what I am as an actor post marriage is due to Aishwarya. One is the practical, logistic side of it. To know that my wife is with Aaradhya is a huge, emotional weight that if lifted, from many parents' mind. She has allowed me, and I say allowed cause that's what it is -- she's given me permission and allowed (and said), 'You go act, I'll take care of Aaradhya.'"
Abhishek further added that how husbands are not thankful for their wives, who take care of their kids at home while they work. He shared:
"So you go out, you get the liberty to perform freely and it's a fact. The countless amount of mothers that do this with their husbands, and you have to be thankful. They have every right to say, 'Come, show in the responsibility 50-50.' So from that perspective."
On November 16, 2021, Abhishek and Aishwarya's baby girl, Aaradhya, had turned ten, and her doting daddy, Abhishek, had penned an adorable wish for her. Sharing a picture of Aaradhya from her birthday bash, Abhishek had written:
"Happy birthday princess! Like your mother says “you make the world a better place”. We love you and God bless you always. #aboutlastnight."
From posing like her mother to telling the paparazzi's 'bus karo', Aaradhya is just like her mommy, Aishwarya. In an interview with the DNA, Aishwarya had accepted that she cannot live without her even for a second. The Jodha Akbar actress had said:
"I can see a mini-me in Aaradhya. I go every day with her to school to drop and pick her up. I do it because I like to do it. I enjoy the time that we spend together."
On the work front, Abhishek will next be seen in his upcoming film, Bob Biswas!
