Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan must be playing around with his children by now if the media reports were true, as Aishwarya Bachchan's pregnancy rumours keep hitting the headlines ever since they tied the knot a few years ago. A leading newspaper even went to the extent of spreading the rumours that Ash couldn't bear child due to stomach tuberculosis, thus earning the wrath of the Bachchans. But this time, Abhishek himself talked about baby.
He was overheard saying 'we have a baby' on the sets of Raavan by Mani Ratnam. Of course, he was talking about a calf that was born on the sets of the film, and not about his baby or anybody's baby for that matter. Mani Ratnam had brought around 20 pregnant cows to the sets to shoot a particular scene.
“All of us were present on the sets as early as 6am. The camera was ready to roll by 6.30am. The entire crew was lounging around waiting for the cow to deliver. It"s rare that one gets to relax on the sets of Mani sir"s film, but this scene was unique. Finally, after almost ten hours, the calf was out. Abhishek was the first to react, clapping and announcing, 'we have a baby on our sets". Everyone started clapping and cheering. Mani sir finally got his shot and was very happy with the outcome. It was a shoot that all of us will remember for a long, long time," Mumbai Mirror quoted a source from Raavan as saying.
Raavan features Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Bachchan and Vikram in the lead roles. It also has actors like Govinda, Ravi Kishan, Nikhil Dwivedi, and Priyamani playing supporting roles. Oscar award winner A.R. Rahman has scored the music of the film.
