Whether it is walking the Cannes red carpet, attending family weddings, hoisting the Indian flag at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2017, or paying her respects during Durga Puja, Diwali and other festivals; Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s constant companion in her journey is her eight-year-old daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan and they love spending time with each other. Also, this mother-daughter jodi is so close that they often like to coordinate their outfits too.
Despite the fact that Aaradhya has a nanny, Aishwarya, just like any other mother, loves to drop-pick her daughter from school and juggles between her personal and professional commitments like how! It’s rare to see the hands-on mother, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan out and about without her daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan, setting trends for mothers and daughters everywhere.
Speaking about her eight-year-old, Aaradhya in an interview with IANS, Aishwarya was quoted as saying:
"Of course, after Aaradhya my priorities have changed completely. She comes first, everything else is secondary."
Here are some mother-daughter moments of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan which are nothing but pure love:
In an interview with Vogue, Aishwarya shared what life lesson she wants to impart to her daughter, Aaradhya. She said:
"I'm a firm believer of the state of mind… to keep your head above a high level of water, every day. That's something I'm imparting to Aaradhya - that B positive is not just a blood group and that everything in life is a learning curve. Experience life in the moment, because you're going to have to live with your experience. I spend all my time with Aaradhya, and I have one nanny, by choice. I read comments saying, "Ah, she must have an army of help" and I understand the perception, but I choose this way, which means life is always busy."
Speaking about how her entire day revolves around her little one and the soul connect she has with Aaradhya, Aishwarya was quoted as saying:
“Aaradhya and I have a soul connect. My day begins and ends with her. From the moment I wake up my entire perspective on the day is centred on her. Her constant presence in my life is not even something I consciously think about it. It’s just there! And I wonder how I lived before she was born. Only a parent would understand how I feel.”
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Aishwarya spoke about inculcating traditions in Aaradhya. She shared:
“I think inculcating traditions in my daughter is natural to me, it is not conditional. That is how I am raised. So, what we end up doing as parents, knowingly or unknowingly, we pass on to our children as traditions because that is the natural flow of life.”
When Aishwarya was all praises about Aaradhya and shared that she is blessed to have her as her daughter:
"Aaradhya is god’s child, her own person, a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious soul. I’m blessed to have her as my daughter. All I’d like to say to her is that she can make and do what she wants with her life."
In an interview, when Aishwarya was asked about the media attention that Aaradhya gets and how she deals with it, the former Miss World stated:
"I have been a very normal mother with her. I go to her school every day. I do normal things with her like going to the park or market, so that she understands what 'normal normal' is and what social excitement is."
Sharing how the Bachchan family tries to keep the atmosphere normal at home, Aishwarya had stated:
“I was happy to let Fanney Khan be the first film Aaradhya watches. It has a positive message for viewers of all ages and there's nothing in it that children cannot watch. In any case, Aaradhya is constantly singing and dancing at home, sometimes to my songs, sometimes to her father's and her grandfather's songs. It's a normal household. We're trying to keep the atmosphere around Aaradhya as normal as possible."
Aishwarya regularly posts heart-meltingly cute photos of her super-adorable daughter, Aaradhya. Aishwarya and Aaradhya make for one stunning and endearing mother-daughter duo. Don't you agree? Drop us a comment below.
