Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan's 14th wedding anniversary: Real reason why Jr Bachchan married the actress
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are celebrating their 14th wedding anniversary today, April 20. But did you know Abhishek didn't marry Aishwarya Rai for her beauty; here's the real reason
Bollywood's most loved couples, Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, celebrate their 14 years of togetherness today, April 20. The power duo got married on April 20, 2007, and the duo has always been giving us couple goals.
They met on the sets of their film Dhai Akshar Prem Ke in 2000 and later worked in Kuch Naa Kaho in 2003. After dating for a year, Abhi and Aish decided to get married.
The couple also has a beautiful nine-year-old daughter Aaradhya Bachchan.
In an interview with a leading daily, Abhishek once talked about his relationship with Aishwarya and how he handles the pressure after marrying the most beautiful woman on earth.
This is what he said, "That's not the basis of my relationship with Aishwarya. It's not about - you're hot and let's get married. It's not that. I married her for the human being that she is, not because she is the most successful actor we have or that she is the international face of Indian cinema. It's all because she is one of the most beautiful women.''
The actor also said, "I mean I could be a complete wreck and say, 'Oh my God, how am I going to handle the pressure or I could have been the most arrogant person on earth'. I don't think I am either in all its modesty. I feel people are going to watch my films not because I am part of the 'it' couple. It's terribly sweet of Oprah to say all this and I really respect her."
Speaking about their relationship, Abhishek said, ''We aspire to be good human beings, loving children and good professionals at what we do. These epitaphs are not going to stay. Today, you are number one and tomorrow, you are not going to be. I have always been like that. I am Amitabh Bachchan's son.''
Talking about the beauty of Aishwarya, Abhishek said, ''These faces that we have come off at night without makeup. I married her for that person.''
It won't be wrong to catch a glimpse of some of their romantic pictures on their special day.
