Mumbai, Apr 20 (): Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary today in New York. The couple were on a trip to Vancouver to attend the Times of India Film Awards in the first week of April. After the awards ceremony was wrapped up, they left to New York.
Aishwarya and Abhishek first met on the sets of Dhai Akshar Prem Ka. They tied the knot on April 20, 2007 as per Hindu rites at a ceremony at the Bachchan’s Juhu residence, Prateeksha. Their wedding was attended by many Bollywood celebrities and it is still the most celebrated Indian wedding.
Abhishek Bachchan in an interview talked about his first meeting with Aishwarya. Abhishek said they first met in August 1997 and still remembers their first meeting.
Abhishek was on a watch for his father’s film, Mrityudata in Switzerland, and Aishwarya was shooting for her first film, Aur Pyar Ho Gaya, with Abhishek’s dear friend Bobby Deol, said the actor.
He continued saying he remembered one evening when Bobby invited him over to his hotel for dinner and Aishwarya and the rest of the unit were there. That was the first time Abhishek actually met Aishwarya, although the actor had obviously seen her before, since she was Miss World and all that.
When asked about the moment when he knew she was the one for him, Abhishek said that he did not remember if there was any such moment, actually, which was peculiar, but it always just felt right.
Abhishek added if you ask Aishwarya, she would also tell the same thing – the minute they had come together, they both knew that was something for keeps. So, there was not just that ‘one’ defining moment, it always felt perfect.
And now it has been six years since the couple tied the knot and they are celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary with their bundle of joy – Aaradhya Bachchan.
