In an interview, Abhishek had talked about not believing in the intuition of fasting and had said, “I don’t believe in it (Karva Chauth), but if my wife is doing something for my health, then it is my duty to be with her. That’s why I will be flying to be with my wife.” Earlier, we had stumbled upon an unseen video of the Bachchan’s celebrating then-nayi naveli bahu, Aishwarya’s first Karwa Chauth. In the video, we could see Aishwarya with her hubby, Abhishek and her in-laws, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan performing Karwa Chauth rituals on the terrace of their home. For her first Karwa Chauth, Aishwarya had looked beautiful than the moon in a yellow-coloured saree and junior B had complemented her well in a kurta. Take a look:
Revealing the first time Aishwarya Rai Bachchan first saw Abhishek Bachchan, the Dhoom 2 actress had revealed, “I first met Abhishek Bachchan in the winter of 1990. We were shooting a cover picture for the magazine I edited and had gone across to discuss details with Jaya Bachchan. Abhishek, then just a teenager, was playing with a friend in the living room of ‘Prateeksha’, their old home in Juhu. He saw me enter the room with his mother and promptly folded his hands into a namaste. As we walked around the place confirming spots for the next day’s shoot, his eyes followed us large expressive eyes, full of trust. During the photoshoot I discovered that out of all the Bachchans, Abhishek was the most awkward in front of the camera and I had never imagined that he would one day choose acting as his career.”
Reminiscing the first time Abhishek had met Aishwarya, he had recalled, “I first met Aishwarya Rai in the summer of 1995. She was recently crowned the Miss World and had become the pride of India. Fans thronged at her Bandra residence for a mere glimpse and filmmakers clamoured to sign her as their leading lady. We bumped into each other again in the green lawns of Hotel Leela Kempinski. The occasion was the launch of Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd. All the top filmmakers, music barons and stars were invited and Aishwarya Rai was there too, not in the spotlight but lurking somewhere in a dark corner accompanied by her mother Vrinda. Aishwarya looked dazzling but ill-at-ease in her new surroundings. People passing by stared at her but were wary of approaching her. She stayed aloof. Would she be able to fit into the jungle world called films? I was not sure.” (Do Read: Raveena Tandon Flaunts Her Beautiful Karwa Chauth 'Mehendi' And Looks Stunning In A Red Suit)
