Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan - ever since the two have been together, they have been considered as the power couple of Bollywood. Today, they are celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary. We came across an old interview of Abhishek where a leading journalist asked him about the tag of 'it couple' given by Oprah Winfrey. Abhishek was also asked how do they handle the pressure of being tagged as one of the most powerful couples. 

On this, Abhishek replied, "You don't let these things matter. You don't go home at night and say 'We are the IT couple' or what we are going to do to maintain this. I think people spend too much time bothering about these things. Two of us have always been real about these things. We have no false illusions of grandeur nor we are aspiring to be that. We aspire to be good human beings, loving children and good professionals at what we do. These epitaphs are not going to stay. Today, you are number one and tomorrow, you are not going to be. I have always been like that. I am Amitabh Bachchan's son. I mean I could be complete wreck and say 'Oh my God, how am I going to handle the pressure or I could have been the most arrogant person earth'. I don't think I am either in all its modesty. I feel people are going to watch my films not because I am the part of the 'it' couple. It's terribly sweet Oprah to say all this and I really respect her."

"That's not the basis of my relationship with Aishwarya. It's not about - you're hot and let's get married. It's not that. I married her for the human being that she is, not because she is the most successful actor we have or she is the international face of the Indian cinema because she is one of the most beautiful women. No, it's not. At the end of the day, when you come back home from a hard day at work, you go to bed and you have to face certain realities about how the person is like. These faces that we have come off at night without makeup. I married her for that person," added the actor. 

We also came across on more interview wherein Aishwarya is talking about husband Abhishek. When asked about Abhishek's statement of them being newly married old couple. On this, Aish said, "We have been very comfortable with each other. The newly aspect is that it's wonderful that we share because it's based on such a friendship. Firstly, for the longest time people would still be wishing us and we are newly married forever which is great. He has put it cleverly."

Abhishek had also said that the two fight every day. On this, she said, "We were normal from the beginning. We go through an entire movie in a day. It all happens really really quick. We have our own little dramatics."

Aren't the two just perfect? 

We wish them a happy wedding anniversary!

Even Jayaji n Big B was not seen in Aish's B'day celebration but its normal I guess each family has some problem. Not only Abhishek but every man sees looks before marriage but Abhishek really is genuine n loving by heart.

Am. I living in 90s because of Ash we have toogo back in news

Abhishek is articulate and clear about what he says and means.
Aishwarya, on the other hand, is so dramatic even in her print interviews.

Lmao. Pv, I beg you to pleeeeaaaaase post this. Many years ago Abhishek had said in an interview that he wanted a homely wife and then he started dating a model by the name of Dippanita Sharma. A model is the opposite of homely. If his ONLY reason for marrying Aish was that she's a good person and it had nothing at all to do with her looks....then he could have married an average looking girl of of good character, too. There's no shortage of them. But the fact remains that attraction was definitely a component in Abhi's decision to marry Aishwarya. To say that it had no role whatsoever sounds ingenuine; like a groen manny trying his hardest to come across as being deep and not shallow and failing miserably at it.

Ok...apparently there's some troubles in thier life...then why they use this personal life to stay in news?!...

Omg Iove this interview. His comment about makeup is so true

5 articles on her wedding anniversary. And then people claim she doesn't use her family to stay in news
