Abhishek Bachchan on what he has learned from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
In an old interview with Vogue India magazine, Abhishek Bachchan was asked about the things he has learned from Aishwarya. Replying to this, Junior Bachchan revealed that Aish has given him the confidence he never had before getting married. He said, “She's given me a confidence I never had before. I think most men will agree with this. I'm the baby of the family, my sister got married years ago and she is fiercely protective of me. I wasn't really held responsible for anything. But after getting married—and this just happened automatically—I realised I wanted to be responsible for this person, I wanted to protect her and care for her.”
Adding further, Abhishek said that Aishwarya has also taught him how to keep things normal and real. “Look, it's easy to get swept away in all this love and adulation we are blessed with. And yes, credit goes to our parents, but also to her. It'll never go to my head—I mean, look who I live with, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan—but also because she's never let it go to hers,” Abhishek explained.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s upcoming projects
Meanwhile, on the work front, Aishwarya is set to be back on the silver screen with Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan: I, which is scheduled for a release in theatres on September 30. It is the first of two cinematic parts based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's 1955 novel Ponniyin Selvan. Talking about it, she said that she has finished filming for both parts of the film. It also stars an ensemble cast of Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Jayaram, Sobhita Dhulipala, and others. Recently, the trailer of the first film based on the Chola dynasty was released and it has left Aishwarya’s millions of fans excited to watch her as Rajkumari Nandini in the historical drama.
Besides that, a couple of months back, in an interview with ETimes, Aishwarya opened up about working with her husband and said, "It should happen." She also hoped that a dream project materialises for her and Abhishek. Meanwhile, in April, Abhishek also spoke about teaming up with his ladylove and told Indian Express that he would 'love' to collaborate with his wife again on-screen. "It has to be the right script at the right time. Until we don’t find that, we can’t do a film together. But we both love to work together," said Abhishek.
