I am not sure if people knew about this, but during the time of "the" bollywood wedding i.e the Aiswarya rai and abhishek bachchan wedding, there were lots of reports in the media about aishwarya and her manglik dosh. This is year 2007 and the media were going crazy analyzing and predicting that Aishwarya's manglik dosha is very bad for abhishek and the bachchan household.
For people unaware with astrology here is more on manglik dosha - This condition is astrologically believed to be devastating for marriage, causing discomfort and tension in relationship, leading to separation and divorce, and in some cases, it is believed to cause untimely death of one spouse.
The media predicted that the marriage wont last nor will abhishek's career. The bachchan's were believed to have done some puja to rectify the dosha. I am glad the bachchan's did not get bogged down by the media. They went ahead and got the 2 married.
Come 2010, lets analyze the effect Aishwarya rai has had on the bachchan family.
- The bachchan name is now stronger than ever. The bachchans now are getting more attention and eyes thanks to aishwarya.
-ABCL - the production house of the bachchans which incurred severe losses in the 90s is resurrected and also had a hit Pa.
- Abhishek's career seemed to have picked up. Dostana, Guru were 2 hits that he had after marriage and also has an interesting line of movies lines up. He also has a TV show of his own and has got some good endorsements as well.
- Everyone is bollywood seems to be sucking up to the bachchans, be it the one time rival SRK, or aamir , every person attended the Pa premiere and it proved that the Bachchans are the first family in bollywood today.
Kudos to the bachchans for not heeding to astrology and a big kudos to aishwarya for putting up with all the media glare and negativity on her personal life. All power to you babe!
And heres congratulating Aishwarya and Abhishek on their 3rd wedding anniversary. Wish you both have many many more.
