Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are the most powerful and influencing couple in the Bollywood industry. Being one of the most desirable women in the world, Aishwarya Rai surprised everyone when she rejected thousands of other proposals to say yes to the very handsome and dashing Abhishek Bachchan. As the son of the legendary star Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek had made a special place for himself in the Bollywood industry. But it was after marrying the gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan that he became a favourite of the paparazzi. Every time he steps out of the house with his lady love Aishwarya Rai, everyone stops and gazes at the couple in awe.
The couple is now blessed with a cute little daughter Aaradhya Bachchan and the three make an amazing family portrait. Abhishek and Aishwarya tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in January 2007. Recently designer duo, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla posted a series of unseen pictures from the Bollywood’s favourite couple Ash and Abhi’s wedding. In the pictures, Aishwarya can be spotted looking prettiest in a sky blue lehenga and Abhishek complimenting her in a designer’s gorgeous creations. Check out the unseen pictures.
They had captioned the pictures as, “2007: A wedding beyond a fairy-tale! Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and the Bachchans go a long way. Jaya Bachchan embraced their work ever since the opening of their first boutique, Mata Hari. She has always been an avid supporter of their creative visions and ‘The Boys’ as she affectionately calls them, have known Abhishek and Shweta since they were kids. So designing for Abhishek’s wedding with Aishwarya was a highly emotional and creatively satisfying experience for the duo. In the picture above, they dressed the groom in a blue silver brocade short Sherwani adorned with gota resham, stones and pearls. For Aishwarya, they created an embroidered pastel resham ghagra set that shone with sequins and stones and a dupatta that was just as rich in details. The wedding was an epitome of glamour and grace and the memory of it remains fresh in our hearts”.
For those who don’t know, Abhishek and Aishwarya’s love story had a perfect filmy tadka. The two met on the sets of their movie Dhau Akshar Prem Ke and felt an instant connection. Although Aishwarya Rai was already dating Salman Khan at that time, the two again did a film together Kuch Na Kaho. However, love didn’t blossom between the two before they started doing the movie Dhoom 2 together. After Dhoom 2, the couple did a number of other movies like Umrao Jaan that saw their love blossoming into a much stronger connection. And during the shoot of their superhit movie Guru, Abhishek Bachchan decided to propose Aishwarya Rai for marriage.
They were in New York, shooting for Guru when Abhishek decided that it is Aishwarya Rai he wanted to marry and couldn’t spend a day without her by his side. The story of their proposal is also worth sharing. It was a freezing night in New York in 2007 when Abhishek went down on his knees with a ring in his hand, in the balcony of their hotel, and asked Aishwarya for marriage. Though she was surprised and completely swept off her feet, the lady said ‘Yes’.
The most surprising thing is that unlike other stars who shut down a Tiffany for the perfect ring or who flew down to another country to get the ring, Abhishek didn’t even use a real solitaire for the romantic proposal. Yes, Abhishek proposed Aishwarya for marriage with a fake ring in his hand and lots of love in his heart. It was the same fake ring that he used in Guru to propose his lady-love in the film.
Well, Aishwarya and Abhishek’s wedding pictures are nothing less than any dream. What do you guys think?
