It was in 2009 when Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan; equivalent to Hollywood's Brangelina, gave their first-ever joint interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show, two years after their grand wedding. Oprah welcomed the couple with open arms as it was Aishwarya's 2nd interview with the legendary talk show host. Oprah began by asking AB Jr. about the romantic proposal to which the actor revealed, "I was filming in New York for a movie and I used to stand on the balcony of my hotel room and wish that one day, wouldn't it be nice if I was together with her, married," as Aishwarya blushed.

"So, I took her to the very same balcony and asked her to marry me," Abhishek recalled to which Aishwarya gushed, "It was very sweet. It was very real at the same time." Moreover, when Oprah asked the pair about their big, fat wedding, Bachchan shared that Indian weddings are very "elaborate" and that it's in their culture to celebrate everything. After explaining how an Indian wedding ceremony takes place, Oprah quipped that after seven rounds of pheras, it would be hard to get divorced after that. "We don't even try and entertain the thought," Aishwarya added.

Abhishek's extremely witty personality came blossoming throughout the interview especially when Oprah asked the couple how it was like to live with their family post marriage. "You live with your family," AB Jr. asked to which Oprah gave no as a response. "How does that work?," Abhishek retorted which got a chuckle out of the audience and even Oprah. Bachchan shared his mother, Jaya Bachchan's rule of having at least one meal a day when all the family members are in the same city at the same time.

When Oprah asked Abhishek what it was like to be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, the 44-year-old actor joked, "It's pleasant on the eyes."

Aishwarya gave herself the most beautiful woman in the world title in 2004 and spread it through her American PR agent who she hired from 2004-2009 because she was desperate to get into Hollywood. Initially, her PR released articles that Julia Roberts called Aishwarya the most beautiful woman in the world. But when Julia Roberts denied saying that, Aishwarya quickly changed the lie that she heard from someone that Julia Roberts thinks she is the most beautiful. What a clever, shrewdly brilliant liar Aishwarya is!

Ash is not the most beautiful woman in the world. Over 25 years ago, She won the Miss World pageant from those 15 contestants who participated in it. There are plenty of 10 times better looking women I see in Manhattan, subway every day. I've never heard from any Western winner of Miss Universe or Miss World pageant calling themselves the most beautiful women in the universe. They only say, I won the pageant in blah blah year. India is the only country where Ash is able to sell her coloured eyes. She has no other talent whatsoever. A bad actress who survived under the spot light of affairs, break ups, marriage to Amitabh's son and then hiding her daughter for 2 years.

Hollywood didn't give her the title. Hollywood doesn't even care if she exists. Aishwarya gave herself this title and keeps on calling herself the most beautiful in every interview.

Oh please, Hollywood never gave her that title. This title was given to her by Indian media. There are more beautiful women living around Hollywood picking up trash from garbage cans.

She didn't label herself the most beautiful woman in the world. It was one of the judges on the Miss World who saw her early morning without makeup, taking a call at the reception and he said he has never seen anyone that beautiful without makeup. Somehow this reached Hollywood and this title was actually given by Hollywood because everyone who saw her remarked they haven't seen anyone that beautiful.

Becoz he is smart, intelligent, good looking sophisticated, has a great sense of humour, humble ,down to earth, & most important an excellent human being.....All these qualities of him were spoken by Ash to similar when she was actually dating Salman ....that’s destiny.

How is AB intelligent? He's a drop out like Aishwarya. Yes intelligence isn't measured by education but even so interviewing well doesn't make you intelligent. He's mediocre in all his efforts.

Trap her? Good joke, she was for sale and he has such low self esteem that he’d rather buy reconstructed whitened plastic because it came with a title but he didn’t anticipate all the misery he’d have to endure for it

Ash was advertised as a miracle in a 99.9% dark skin and dark eyed India. Are we supposed to be proud of it? I felt humiliated when Priyanka, Shushmita, Lara Dutta are not advertised as Most beautiful women in Universe from the last 20 plus years. I feel humiliated when Bollywood is represented by flopped Ash to welcome Prince Charles when real queens of Bollwood Madhuri, Sri Devi, Kajol etc were just standing in the corner. India is ashamed of its reality.

Well Oprah is a poor judge of character, beauty is subjective and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Not everyone finds Aishwarya the most beautiful!

Aishwarya has dark skin and brown eyes. Go look at her pictures from her childhood and teenage....she looks like Aaradhya. She magically got green eyes and light skin before going to Miss World. Have you ever seen her family? They all are dark skinned brown eyed coastal people.

She looks like a vamp. That's why she couldn't succeed in Hindi movies. Bollywood requires a certain vulnerability , innocence and charm, which Ash lacks.

You're very right I totally agree with your comment she's not the most beautiful woman in the world

Years later and I still can’t forget when aish says “it was very real”. (I cringed) but then Abhishek called her out on it asking “it was real?” She seemed nervous but he was great in the interview. Also when Oprah asked do you ever look in the mirror and go da*n (like I look good) and aish say yes of course quite often (she misunderstood it as I don’t look good). That’s a cultural diff. But the it’s real???
