When Abhishek Bachchan met Aishwarya Rai


Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai are the ‘it’ couple of the Hindi film industry. While Abhishek was engaged to Karisma Kapoor at one time, Aishwarya had a tumultuous affair with the Bhai of Bollywood, Salman Khan.

Both Abhi and Ash ended up together because they thought they were a great match.

The two didn’t fall for each other right off the bat though. There was some conversation, which bloomed into a solid friendship, which further blossomed into love. The actors had starred together in movies Dhai Akshar Prem Ke and Kuch Naa Kaho. But things really started to move in the right direction while they were shooting for Umrao Jaan and Dhoom 2. And while filming Guru, they realised they wanted to spend their lives together.

On November 16, 2011, the couple was blessed with their daughter Aaradhya. Aishwarya took a break from movies for a few years and made her comeback with the action-thriller Jazbaa in 2015, where she starred alongside Irrfan Khan. And more than a decade later, their love is still going strong, reports The Indian Express.
