With the rumors about their new project in full swing, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai are back in the spotlight. The couple has managed to stay a power couple for 11 years now and is lovingly going strong. While they tied the knot back in 2007, they kept the details on their relationship on the down low. But after a decade later, Aishwariya is ready to spill all the details and make us fall in love with the couple all over again.
In a recent interview with Filmfare, the Devdas actress was asked if she remembers how Abhishek proposed to her back then. The actress responded positively, telling how he proposed to her while she was busy shooting for Jodha Akbar.
“Of course I recall,” Aishwarya said, reminiscing over the eventful day and how Abhishek had gone down on one knee to ask her. Looks like the man knows how to keep up with the romantic standards.
She explained how it was on the sets, and the director Ashutosh Gowariker was around as well. The actress further added, “Ashutosh is like ‘you are engaged’ and I am like ‘yeah,’ excitedly,” She also recalled how her costar, Hrithik Roshan was present as well, who gave her an excited thumbs up from the back.
She further explained how they were shooting for the song Khwaja Mere Khwaja, and the whole experience was so surreal and bizarre.
“We’re doing Khawja Mere Khwaja, sitting as a bride, and I am like, oh my god this is surreal, all happening on-screen, off-screen, this is bizarre.”
Definitely sounds like a day to remember! The couple soon announced their engagement and got hitched in an intimate ceremony in Mumbai, away from the glitz and glamour that comes with showbiz.
The two have made appearances together in successful ventures like Dhoom 2, Raavan, Kuch Na Kaho, Guru, and so many other movies. And they are currently going to show up in upcoming film Gulab Jaamun, alongside each other. We can’t wait to see what magic they will create on-screen again!
