While Aishwarya Rai dazzled at the royal dinner with the Duke and the Duchess, conspiracy theorists were haunted by Abhishek Bachchan’s conspicuous absence from the royal gala. The grapevine was abuzz with hypothetical reasons behind Abhishek’s no-show.


However, a DNA report revealed that Abhishek Bachchan has been advised bed rest due to a slipped disc and thus could not make it to the event. 


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton are in Mumbai as part of a seven-day tour of India and Bhutan. The gala dinner arranged in their honour witnessed the attendence of the who's who of Bollywood led-by the Indian beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. 


Mrs Bachchan was selected to  sit beside Prince William during the glittering charity gala held at the Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai. The DNA report further states that the actor was eagerly waiting for the day, but due to his condition he had to cancel his plans at the last moment.


Get well soon, Abhi!
