Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan make one of the most stunning and powerful jodis from the Indian film fraternity. Ever since the lovebirds took the wedding vows on April 20, 2007, they are redefining what love and marital bliss are. All of you would agree when we say that Aishwarya and Abhishek are the epitome of what couple goals should be aimed at!
In an interaction with Famously Filmfare, Aishwarya opened up about a lot of things related to her wedding with Abhishek. On being asked what the couple argues the most about, the actress first laughed off this question on the face of it and said, “You don’t want to know”.

And then, she further added on a serious note, she remarked, “We’re both genetically very generously been given very strong genes. So, we’re inherently very strong personalities. I think there is a very fine line between arguing and discussing and that’s something we’re still arriving at discovering what is what. So, we discuss a lot, either politely put it as discuss, probably argue but”.
Further, when she was probed to share that one peculiar habit of her husband that leads to arguments, she very cunningly stated, “It has been 12 years and how many years before that we’ve known each other as friends. We’ve known each other through quite a long time. We’ve always conversed a lot and communicated a lot, in all its shades, in all the colours of the rainbow.” (Checkout: Mulk Actor, Prateik Babbar And His Girlfriend, Sanya Sagar Are Getting Married, Details Inside)
Aishwarya once shared who is a good listener amongst her and Abhishek. The Guru actress retorted, "He’s a friend, companion, husband and a father, but I think the fact that he’s my bestest friend pretty much encapsulates it all. We are a very normal couple. Abhishek and I sometimes joke about being second siblings. We both share and talk a lot about what we are feeling. Sometimes, we have so much to say that we want to be the first to share it. So, I have to say this first: we are both good listeners, but also extremely talkative.”
There has been quite a lot of times when Aish's (as her fans and loved ones call her) husband Abhishek became a prey to trolls and hatred online. Talking about the same, Aishwarya in an interview with SpotboyE was quoted as saying, “Abhishek does what he has to do or what he feels like doing… to each his own. There have been instances where he has been silent for years and made a choice to remain silent and then once a while he decides to engage and then he does. There is no telling if he will or if he won’t, it is a matter of at that time.”
Talking about herself, she was quoted as saying, “It’s the approach, sense of self, self-confidence, self-esteem and finding strength in our capabilities that I find liberating. Be in tune with who you are because that keeps you positive. Once you start radiating that positivity, there is no stopping you.” Adding further, she remarked, “I react (when cameras come too close). If my arm is around Aaradhya, people will say the mother is very clingy. I hear all this when it is already couple of days later so it is kind of over. I don’t let it define me. I don’t change how I take care of Aaradhya or how I define myself based on all of this. Judge me for it but I will love her, embrace her. She is my daughter. We know we are being watched, the photo is being judged but I will not play into that world.” (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra's Rumoured Ex-BF Shahid Kapoor Has An Important Advice For Her Now Hubby, Nick Jonas)
In an interview earlier with a leading tabloid, Abhishek shared how they handle the pressure of being one of the most powerful couples. Abhishek stated, "You don't let these things matter. You don't go home at night and say 'We are the IT couple' or what we are going to do to maintain this. I think people spend too much time bothering about these things. Two of us have always been real about these things. We have no false illusions of grandeur nor we are aspiring to be that. We aspire to be good human beings, loving children and good professionals at what we do. These epitaphs are not going to stay.”
The Manmarziyaan actor shared, “Today, you are number one and tomorrow, you are not going to be. I have always been like that. I am Amitabh Bachchan's son. I mean I could be complete wreck and say 'Oh my God, how am I going to handle the pressure or I could have been the most arrogant person earth'. I don't think I am either in all its modesty. I feel people are going to watch my films not because I am the part of the 'it' couple. It's terribly sweet Oprah to say all this and I really respect her."

Abhishek once also shared the real reason behind marrying the beautiful damsel and told, "That's not the basis of my relationship with Aishwarya. It's not about - you're hot and let's get married. It's not that. I married her for the human being that she is, not because she is the most successful actor we have or she is the international face of the Indian cinema because she is one of the most beautiful women. No, it's not. At the end of the day, when you come back home from a hard day at work, you go to bed and you have to face certain realities about how the person is like. These faces that we have come off at night without makeup. I married her for that person."
Aishwarya and Abhishek, you are one of the most loved and inspiring power couples. Don’t you guys agree?
