I love so many things about Ash, says Abhishek


Abhishek Bachchan said his wife is uncomplicated and “always smiling,” in a newspaper interview published on July 25, describing how he met and fell in love with Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai.

Bachchan and Rai were married in April in what Indian media dubbed ‘The Wedding of the Century’ — an extravagant affair that had photographers and cameramen camped for days outside their homes in Mumbai.

The two became friends when they worked together on the 2000 movie Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, but cupid didn’t strike until they filmed Dhoom 2 five years later, he told The Times of India. “We started dating in the latter half of the film as Dhoom 2 was shot for over a year-and-a-half,” he said.

“There are so many things I love about Aishwarya. She’s very human and unaffected and down-to-earth,” Bachchan told TOI. “A simple little girl who is always smiling and that’s very endearing.”

But he said it was difficult to pinpoint when he fell in love.

“There was no defining moment as such,” said Bachchan. “I cannot explain it in words.” Has life changed after marriage? Bachchan says Rai was pressuring him to change his diet.

“She tries to make me eat healthy food as she knows I have unhealthy habits,” said Bachchan.
