Talking about their engagement, Aishwarya recently said that she was on the sets of Jodhaa Akhbar when Abhishek popped the question. “We’re doing Khawja Mere Khwaja, sitting as a bride, and I am like, oh my god this is surreal, all happening on-screen, off-screen, this is bizarre,” she said about the moment.
Talking about their married life, Aishwarya had said that they do argue with each other from time to time. “It has been 12 years and how many years before that we’ve known each other as friends. We’ve known each other through quite a long time. We’ve always conversed a lot and communicated a lot, in all its shades, in all the colours of the rainbow,” she had said in an interview.
Abhishek once sad that he finds his father’s criticism difficult to deal with. “It’s very difficult. I have never said this, but it is. Because apart from being a co-star, a son, I’m also his biggest fan. And I genuinely say that. From the bottom of my heart, I believe that he is the greatest actor on earth,” Abhishek said in an interview.
