There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage. If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love. So today one of the most beautiful and everlasting couple: Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan have completed 12 years of marital bliss.
So today, let’s talk about their unconventional love story. The two first met on the sets of the movie, Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke (2000), and later worked on another film, Kuch Naa Kaho (2003). At this time, they were just friends. In fact, they had casually met even before they did these films together. It was actually on the sets of Aishwarya’s first Bollywood movie, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya (1997), where she was working with Abhishek’s good friend, Bobby Deol. If rumors to be believed then the love ignited between the two of them while shooting for the item song, Kajra Re, on the sets of Bunty Aur Babli (2005).
However, it was in 2006-2007, when they got a lot of time to spend together while shooting together for three films, Umrao Jaan, Guru and Dhoom 2. It was especially during the year and a half shooting period of Dhoom 2, when they started developing feelings towards each other. Aishwarya’s uncomplicated nature and smiling face just made Abhishek weak in his knees.
In an interview, Abhishek revealed how he proposed Aishwarya: “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.”
And soon they exchanged vows and became each other for life.
