Abhishek okay with being overshadowed by Ash

MUMBAI: Abhishek Bachchan, who is all geared up for the release of Drona, says he doesn’t mind being overshadowed by his wife Aishwarya Rai. At this year’s Cannes Film Festival attended by him and his wife, Abhishek was repeatedly asked how it felt to be overshadowed by his wife. “Although the intention behind such questions is obviously not honourable, I don’t get rattled at all. It’s a pleasure to be overshadowed by the most beautiful woman in the world. I had a ball doing the ‘Unforgettable’ concerts with Aishwarya,” Abhishek said.

After Guru, the actor is teaming up with his wife once again for Mani Ratnam’s next film.

“I know I’ll have a great time shooting Mani Ratnam’s film with her. Right now I’m looking forward to her return from Brazil,” he said.

Aishwayra was in Brazil shooting for Shankar’s Robot. Abhishek said he was looking forward to Aishwarya’s presence at the premiere of Drona. “It sounds very romantic to say my wife is flying down especially to be at my film’s premiere. But sadly, it is not true. Her schedule for Robot was supposed to wrap up a week before the premiere, and it did. So she was going to be in Mumbai for the Drona premiere anyway. Having said this, let me add, she’d have come back to Mumbai for the occasion from any part of the world even if she was shooting.”
