It's almost hard to believe that ten years have passed since Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan entered the wedlock. The duo was destined to be with each other forever. Today (April 20, 2017), on this special day, we've brought it to you, a special feature on them, which will surely make your day!
As we all know, Abhi-Ash are considered as one of the most beautiful and made-for-each-other couples of Bollywood. And just like their real life chemistry, their off-screen chemistry is equally mesmerising!
On that note, presenting before you, the first ever photoshoot pictures of Aishwarya Rai & Abhishek Bachchan.
Dhai Akshar Prem Ke
While the duo have worked together in many films,'Dhai Akshar Prem Ke' was their debut film together and back in 2000, they did their first photoshoot together!
They Look So Innocent
Unfazed by the glamour world, the duo look every bit innocent and their chemistry in these pictures, is nothing but pure bliss!
They Were Just Friends
Interestingly, back then, they were nothing more than 'just good friends'.
How Gorgeous Do They Look!
At that time, who would have thought that in upcoming years, they will be considered as one of the most iconic jodis of the B-town (both off-screen and on-screen).
They Were Meant To Be Together
As they say, destiny plays a major role when it comes to love or marriage. Back then, Aishwarya was involved with Salman Khan, while Abhishek was engaged to Karisma Kapoor.
Here's How Destiny Played Its Part..
However, Abhishek-Karisma's engagement soon broke off, and Abhishek got involved in his work. On the other side, Salman's abusive behaviour towards Aishwarya led to their break-up as well. After this, she got involved with Vivek Oberoi. But, even that relationship did not last for long.
So How Did The Love Blossom?
While some believe it was during the shoot of 'Kajra Re' that love blossomed between Aish & Abhi, some claim that it happened during the shoot of Umrao Jaan.
Later, Abhishek Proposed Aishwarya
After spending time for a couple years together, Abhishek made up his mind to propose Aishwarya and during the premiere of Guru, he followed his heart! And guess what? The queen of millions of hearts, gave her heart to this man!
From The Horse's Mouth..
"I was filming in New York for a movie. And, I used to stand on the balcony of my hotel room and wish that, 'One day, wouldn't it be nice if I was together with her, married. Years later, we were there for the premiere of Guru. After the premiere, we were back in the hotel. So, I took her to the very same balcony, and I asked her to marry me," had said Abhishek.
20 April: A Date To Remember
After the formal proposal, the two flew back to Mumbai and got married on April 20, 2007.
Even They Faced Ups & Downs In Their Married Life
Like every couple, Abhishek & Aishwarya too, have faced many ups & downs in their married life. But every single time, the duo emerges stronger.
Aishwarya On Her Nok-Jhok With Abhishek
Talking about her nok-jhok with hubby Abhishek, Aishwarya had mentioned once in an interview that "There has never been a single instance when I have been upset over anything. Of course, we have had tiffs for fun and he has done things to pamper me."
What Makes Abhishek A Perfect Hubby?
Talking about the good qualities of Abhishek, she had said, "Abhishek is my source of inspiration. He is always so supportive. Whenever I am confused and don't know what to do, I look at him and he solves the duality in me like magic. He is the real 'Padma Shri' and I'm his 'Padma Shrimati'."
What Aishwarya Means To Abhishek!
"Aishwarya is my anchor. She is my buddy, my closest friend. I can discuss anything with her. Our relationship is not based on her being Aishwarya Rai or me coming from an illustrious family. It is just about two people falling in love which has organically grown. We started during Guru. It was meant to be."
One Plus One Is Equal To Three
On November 16, 2011, Aishwarya & Abhishek welcomed the sunshine of their life, Aaradhya Bachchan and ever since their love just got multiplied!
Filmibeat wishes Aishwarya Rai & Abhishek Bachchan, a very happy anniversary!
