Aishwarya Rai, one of the most beautiful actresses of Bollywood, is celebrating her 49th birthday today. Growing age has no effect on Aishwarya even today.she was as flawless as she was in her 20’s.
Aishwarya has seen many good and bad days in her life. Being an actoress many times she got caught in controversies and rumors about her. One of these rumors was related to their marriage due to which Aishwarya Rai was very angry. This is from 2007.
There was excitement among the fans about the marriage of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan. Everyone wanted to see the marriage ceremony of both. But the Bachchan family thought it best to keep the ceremonies and wedding private at their Juhu home. The couple wanted their privacy but rumors started flying in the corridors of Bollywood. One of them was that before marrying Abhishek, Aishwarya had married a tree.
Aishwarya Rai spoke openly about this for the first time in an interview given to NDTV in 2008. She was asked about things related to marriage which she did not expect. On this, Aishwarya said, ‘We expected some things. But we did not expect many things.’ On this she was asked what she was talking about. Then Aishwarya had said, ‘Some things happened, but why should you pay attention to them.’
After this, she was further asked whether she was talking about the rumors and controversy about her marriage to a tree, so she said, ‘Yes, this matter happened a lot then. I think it was quite unnecessary.
To give such a talk on prime time, to print it in the news, to put such a story on the cover of a magazine, all this was utter nonsense.’ Aishwarya further said, ‘The great thing is that we were strong as a family. We were in front of all the public eyes.. We thought that the head of the family should talk about this. Pa had spoken to the media about this after marriage and had answered questions.’
Aishwarya Rai had also shared the frustration of talking about this to the international media. She said, ‘This was shocking. We are happy to think that it will end as one thing but still it prints in people’s minds and newspapers. And I realized this when I started traveling abroad. There were many such occasions… You are constantly talking to the international media and they believe in such nonsense.
