When Aishwarya Rai Bachchan called herself hubby Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Padma Shrimati’
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have featured together in a total of eight films.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has undoubtedly cemented her position as one of the top actresses in the film industry. With her many memorable performances on celluloid, Aishwarya has earned the praise and love of critics and fans alike. Although she is not seen on the silver screen as often as her admirers would like, there has always remained a sense of curiosity when it comes to her life. Apart from her professional career, fans are also interested to know about Aishwarya’s personal life. Moreover, her relationship with her husband and actor Abhishek Bachchan has always been in the spotlight too. Considering that, it’s never the wrong time for an adorable throwback on the power couple.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Padma Shrimati’
Abhishek and Aishwarya have shared screen space in 8 films. Among others, one such film is Mani Ratnam’s 2010 movie Raavan. While shooting for the film in Kolkata back in the day, the couple was interviewed by a TWF Correspondent.
This was also the time when Aishwarya was honoured with the Padma Shri Award, which is the fourth-highest civilian award in the country. When asked if Abhishek was upset that he was not awarded the Padma Shri, the actor replied that he, in fact, was not at all upset. Giving it a second thought, Junior Bachchan said that whatever is Aishwarya’s, is his as well, so, in that sense, he said, he has the award too.
Abhishek was further asked if he is happy for Aishwarya and he said that he wished he could express how happy he was for Aish. He also said that he is proud of her for receiving the honour that she deserves.
Aishwarya chipped in and articulated that Junior AB is the real ‘Padma Shri’ and that she is his Padma Shrimati. “Abhishek is my source of inspiration. He is always so supportive. Whenever I am confused and don't know what to do, I look at him and he solves the duality in me like magic. He is the real 'Padma Shri' and I'm his 'Padma Shrimati,” said the actress.
