It’s almost hard to believe that a year has passed since Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai were married. The love story that was kept under wraps until they announced their engagement still continues to capture the attention of fans and media. Their relationship along with the attention has always been under scrutiny. Initially many thought Aish was marrying AB to further advance herself in Bollywood since the Bachchan name carries so much weight. It was also thought by many that the guest list for the wedding was too selective and left out close friends like Hrithik Roshan and Rani Mukerji. As a couple, the two are a marketers dream. Both appeal to a wide audience of film fans and have certain qualities that allow them to endorse brands such as jeans, diamonds, cell phones and soft drinks.
In their first year of marriage the couple also worked together on Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar Raj. The couple also plans to tour with other Bollywood actors starting in July, including Amitabh Bachchan himself. Unfortunately, the couple has had to deal with the loss of Abhishek’s grandmother Teji Bachchan. As the ever supportive wife, Aishwarya took time from work commitments to be there for her family while they dealt with the tremendous lose.
What has changed about the two as individuals post marriage? Nothing much according to Aishwarya. They live together and work together as team, and support each other when the time comes. From a fan’s perspective, we have seen Abhishek lose weight and get fit. He has stated in interviews that his wife only wants him to eat healthy food. Aish seems to have opened up more in her interviews. At awards we see public displays of affection, such as Aish putting her head on Abhi’s shoulders and the couple holding hands.
Together they are celebrating their anniversary in Miami, Florida where Abhishek is on location for his next film directed by Karan Johar and co-starring John Abraham. Miami is a beautiful location right by the water, with amazing restaurants, salsa dancing, and shopping galore. However the couple chooses to spend their time, we here at Bollyspice want to wish them a Happy Anniversary and well wishes for the future.
