Abhi-Ash named India's No.1 Power Couple!
Bollywood’s golden couple Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have been bestowed with the recognition of ‘No.1 Power Couple’ by the esteemed Stardust magazine. The mega stars got the title recently at the launch of the latest issue of Stardust in Delhi. Abhishek and Aishwarya graced the occasion as they lifted the veil off to reveal their own photos as the cover page.
Abhishek and Aishwarya tied the nuptial knot around 4 years back on 20th April, 2007. Since then, the two have had an amazing off-screen chemistry and they always look head over heels in love with each other whenever they are spotted together.
The couple is hugely popular amidst the Bollywood movie lovers. They are big stars and have carved out a niche for themselves in the film industry. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan leapt into fame after winning the Miss World pageant in 1994. Since then there has been no looking back as she climbed the ladders of fame via her big ticket to the B-town.
Abhishek Bachchan made his Bollywood debut around 10 years back with Refugee. But over the years, he and Aishwarya have starred in a plethora of films. Though the two look spectacular together off-screen, it is ironic that their on-screen chemistry has been mostly ‘thanda’ (cold).
However, in Mani Ratnam’s Guru they, indeed, looked fabulous together and the camaraderie was extremely great. Abhishek and Aishwarya add star value to the Bachchan family that is led by Amitabh Bachchan considered as one of the greatest actors of all times.
Money, popularity, a sea of fan following, films, endorsements, good looks and repute, they have got it all. Hence, it’s no doubt that Abhi-Ash do deserve the ‘Power Couple’ title.
**This is NOT the first time that they're being called the power couple. However, I got a problem with this. A power couple is one in which both the partners contribute equally and then they exude so much power that they edge out other couples in the race. The latter might be true but the former part is where the problem lies. Let's be honest! Abhishek's contribution to getting this title is not even 20%. Replace Abhishek with any other unsuccessful actor with a filmy background, the story would still be the same.
Before those fanclubs attack me... No, I'm not saying that they do not deserve to be the numero uno 'Power Couple'. I think they do. But Abhishek still has a long way to go to match up to his partner's success.
