When Abhishek Bachchan spoke of his married life with Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, he also cleared the air on divorce rumours
Celebs are always under the radar and media scanner from their professional to their personal lives that grabs headlines and becomes the talk of the town.
Likewise, the Bachchan family is always in the news especially because of their 'bahu' Aishwarya Rai. A few years ago, a video clip of Abhishek and Aishwarya from an event went viral, which suggested that all is not well between the two. Soon, many reports claimed that a divorce was on the cards.
Upon reading them, Abhishek was furious, and when a leading daily asked about the impact of such stories, the actor had said, "I know what the truth is, and I know how far to take the media seriously. I am not going to allow a third party to dictate to Aishwarya and me, how we should lead our lives. She knows how much I love her, and I know how much she loves me.''
Abhishek also spoke about misinterpretations by media to capture eyeballs and clear the air by saying, ''If you are going to misinterpret something for your own convenience, then go ahead. I am a public figure after all. And I cannot make the media happy all the time. My marriage and my life are not going to be dictated by what the media says. So, it's really not an issue for me."
The actor has once spoken about his successful married life with Aishwarya to Filmfare, saying communication is essential in a marriage and there should be respect and understanding in a relationship to work, ''There's a lot of adjustment, a lot of give and take. There will be agreements and disagreements. But it's important to keep the communication going. That's something I've always believed in."
Aishwarya and Abhishek will mark their 13th wedding anniversary on April 20, 2020. They recently celebrated their daughter Aaradhya Bachchan's 8th birthday on November 16.
