When The First Time Abhishek Met Aishwarya!

It Was Not Love At First Sight
Abhishek and Aishwarya worked in many films together and were good friends. Some say it was during the shooting of the film Guru that they felt something for each other, while others believe that love happened while filming for Kajra Re.
The First Time When Abhishek Realised He Loves Aishwarya
Abhishek had told in a TV interview, ''There was this scene, which was actually my favourite scene in KANK. There is a scene where I come back and tell Rani (Mukerji) that my father has passed away. And I give her a photograph and I take out this photograph and tell her that he wanted you to have it... I saw it and it was my father's photograph. After Karan said ‘cut' I went to the side and I just broke down... I also realised, the first time I told somebody that you know, I think I'm in love with Aishwarya.''
Soon, Abhishek Decided To Propose To Her
Abhishek Bachchan decided to propose to Aishwarya Rai after the premiere of the film in Toronto, with a ring they had used in Guru.
Who Was The First Person Abhishek Called When Aishwarya Said 'Yes'!

Karan Johar Played Cupid
Abhishek had confessed in a show, "Karan was the cupid who kept putting in the idea that she is fantastic. You both will look so wonderful together. She looks so glamorous in the house when she walks."
When Their Horoscope Matched
It was in February 2006, when Amitabh Bachchan's brother Ajitabh Bachchan told the media that he had gone to Bangalore-based astrologer Chandrashekhar Swamy with the horoscopes of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan.
The Big Fat Indian Wedding
Abhishek & Aishwarya tied the knot on the 20th of April 2007. The baarat started from Jalsa, to their other house, Prateeksha.
What Aishwarya Loves Most About Abhishek
Aishwarya had told TOI in an interview, ''He's a really nice guy. The honest truth is that we have always found a beautiful friendship that we share. And that's what converted into marriage and it's only grown deeper and deeper with each passing day.''
We Are Growing With Each Other
''What's wonderful is that we are growing with each other. We share a lot. I communicate a lot and believe immensely in it and he says that he does that most with me. He is a very real guy. And I am a very real person. We are both very connected to our reality and to ourselves.''
Abhishek Does Fool Around But...
''I have always called myself a child-woman as everyone saw that giggler in me and all that does exist and yes, Abhishek does fool around but he is also extremely intense.''
He Is Ahead Of His Time
''That's the facet people see in him for intense roles. He is deep, ahead of his time and he is a boy. He enjoys evoking that emotion of everybody towards him. And that's fine. He is always under so much scrutiny and pressure. He was born to that. It's his reality and it's not going to leave him.''
What Connects Aish & Abhi..
''He knows it, has embraced it and will continue to figure out embracing it. But he's in a good place as he recognises it. That's also the connect we always had as I came with my own set of pressures too, as there was so much expectation attached.''
Abhishek and Aishwarya are now blessed with a beautiful angel named Aaradhya Bachchan. Well, some matches are actually made in heaven!
