It’s not easy to be a celebrity. And so one can imagine how tough it is to be in a family which has only stars. Yes we are talking about the Bachchan family, which is one of the most respectable families of Bollywood.
And the one question that is on everyone’s mind is when will Aishwarya Rai Bachchan be pregnant? Never has a celebrity been exposed to such intense media scrutiny as much as Ash. The media went into a frenzy when she tied the knot to Abhishek and it looks like that this will now be extended to her pregnancy.
Last night the Bachchan trio came for the promotion of Ram Gopal Varma’s forthcoming film Sarkar Raj . This film brings the three Bachchans together once again after Bunty Aur Babli . More than that it’s the first film after Abhishek-Ash’s marriage, so it is obvious why the film is generating so much attention and hype.
But more than the plot of Sarkar Raj , everybody was interested to know when would Ash and Abhishek be in the family way. When Amitabh Bachchan was asked when will he become a grandfather, a rather restrained reply came as, “I am already a grandfather. I have two grandchildren.”
Reacting to his answer another journalist clarified the question and asked, when he will be grandfather of Ash and Abhishek’s child. Now Abhi and Ash were totally amazed and wanted to see the person who asked this question.
While not reacting much on it Big B said, “ Achcha!! Ab mein dada kab banunga yeh baat mujhse poochne ke bajay (pointed at Abhi-Ash) inse pooche to behtar hota! mein aasha karta hu aap film se jude sawaal pooche!”
The scribe was not put off by the rebuff, He then looked asked Ash whether she is pregnant or not? As she was about to say no...Big B interrupted and said its better the media sticks to questions related to Sarkar Raaj.
Celebrities in India pay a heavy price for their stardom by losing their privacy. And nobody knows it better that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
