It"s been a time of incredible travelling and stock-taking for Bollywood"s golden couple who are now in Cannes. But believe it or not, just a few days ago they were in Bhopal, visiting Mrs Jaya Bachchan"s mother who lives in the city.
Says a source, “It was a flash visit last week. Abhishek and Aishwarya had never visited his Naani together. They wanted to surprise her. They had a day off. So they just took off for the day. There was no direct flight. So they had to take a hopping flight. But it was finally worth it because the visit made their grandmother in Bhopal so happy."
And now the Golden Couple has taken off for Cannes at a very short notice.
Says a source, “They"ve both gone on a personal and very special invitation from the Cannes film festival. Aishwarya attends either the festival opening or closing every year, depending on the time availability. Abhishek just decided to accompany his wife on the special invitation of the Festival."
They will return soon. Aishwarya will resume shooting with Akshay Kumar for Vipul Shah"s Instant Replay. Abhishek will join his father for another schedule of Balki"s Paa. Incidentally he can"t wait to abandon his clean-shaven look for Paa and get back to his stubbled look.
