Mumbai: Actors Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have been married for more than a decade now...12 years to be precise. While their nuptials made national headlines owing to quaint customs such as marrying a tree and what-not, the marriage proposal remained under wraps.

Now, Ash shared in a recent interview with Filmfare how Junior Bachchan proposed marriage to her. When asked if she remembers how the question was popped, pat came the reply, “Of course I recall.” 

She further revealed, “Of course’, I remember. During the shoot of Jodha Akbar's song Khwaja Mere Khwaja, sitting as a bride, and I am like, omg this is surreal, all happening on-screen, off-screen, this is bizarre and Ashutosh is like you are engaged and I am like what..." Turns out, her co-star Hrithik Roshan reacted to the news as well with a thumbs up.

Aish and Abhi fell in love during the shoot of Mani Ratnam's Guru, but it was before the release of the film that Abhishek proposed to Aishwarya. In 2007, when Aishwarya and Abhishek were in New York prior to the release of the film, Abhishek went down on his knees in a hotel's balcony and gave a ring to Aish and rest, as they say, is history. 

Later, they got married shortly after the engagement which was a private ceremony at the Bachchan residence in Mumbai. The duo has worked together on numerous films, such as Dhoom 2, Guru and Raavan. Now they have a daughter, Aaradhya. 


Happy New Year. 🥂
