Not just this, the evergreen diva praised Aishwarya’s work in films and her several roles in films. But, the real-life part she revealed to be her most cherished one was Aishwarya’s role as an ‘Amma’ to Aaradhya. Rekha wished Aishwarya all the love in the world and sent her blessings for life ahead with the open letter to the magazine on the completion of the latter’s 2 decades in Bollywood. The gesture itself left everyone in awe of Rekha and Aishwarya’s bond. 

Check out the Rekha’s letter to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan:

My Ash,

A woman like you who is in harmony with her spirit is like a flowing river, never stagnant. She goes where she wants to without pretence; and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself. People may forget what you said, they may also forget what you did but they will never forget how you made them feel. You are a living example that courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently! Your deep strength and pure energy introduces you even before you speak!

The wisest thing you did was to be present with the ‘present’ with gratitude. You pursued the things you loved doing, and then did them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you! You on your own are enough with nothing to prove to anyone. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.

You’ve come a long way, baby. Having endured many hurdles, like the phoenix you rise! And I cannot pen down in words how proud I am of that little ‘cool’ moon-faced girl who took my breath away the very instant I first laid my eyes on her. You always gave better than the best to all the roles you were bestowed with but my most cherished character of yours is the role of the complete ‘Amma’ that you are, to the little bundle of pure joy called Aaradhya. Keep loving and spreading your magic. Two decades of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan- wow! Aashirwads and duas I wish for you more goodness and blessings; much more than your heart can contain!

Love you. Jeete raho. Rekha Ma.

The letter left everyone of Aishwarya and Rekha’s fans in awe of their bond. Whenever the two stars meet at public events, their photos go viral on social media. The letter came at a time when Aishwarya completed 2 decades in Bollywood back in 2018.

Aishwarya claims to live with her in-laws and portrays herself as the perfect daughter-in-law but she doesn't hangout with her in-laws. There is no closeness or interaction between her and her in-laws. She actively ignores them and purposely insults them. Aaradhya lives in Bachchan house but doesn't even recognize her grandparents Amitabh and Jaya. Aishwarya doesn't let anyone come close to Aaradhya even Abhishek is scared to hold Aaradhya but only Aishwarya's mother Vrinda Rai can hold Aaradhya. Even Aishwarya's brother Aditya Rai and sister-in-law Shrima Rai have no relationship with Aaradhya. Aishwarya comes across as a psycho control freak who has issues with everyone. No wonder she doesn't get along with any of her ex's, she doesn't get along with any other actresses and has no friends in the industry. Aishwarya is a strange woman.

Trashwarya knows very well Rekha's history with Bachchans and how they're not comfortable with Rekha. Still she goes out of her way to make them uncomfortable. She truly is the worst daughter-in-law haha

Aishwarya didn't let Jaya stand next to Amitabh and always stood in between them. What a ill-mannered attention seeker who made Jaya's life hell. Even more annoying was when she used to bring her clingy mother to all events on Bachchan invitation. But look how she has successfully created an image of best daughter-in-law while her MIL is being hated.

Vivek or Salman should write a letter to Jaya praising her for being the best mother-in-law to Aishwarya. Haha Aish trolls will burn and start abusing both Salman Vivek and Jaya but here they are praising Aishwarya and Rekha lol

How much lower can this cheap woman stoop to just to annoy her in-laws.. wow. Aishwarya you hate your in-laws and you have made it clear by your antics but no need to further spite Jaya by bringing in Rekha. This shameless Aish is the one who is being praised as the good daughter-in-law lol. Aish made Jaya's life hell since she entered Bachchan house and started calling herself Mrs. Bachchan. I hope Jaya goes and hugs Salman. It'll be fun to see Trashwarya fans burning when this happens but Jaya is too classy to do such a thing.

When did Rekha write this letter? Lol. Aish we know you are a terrible daughter-in-law who has never respected Jaya but that doesn't mean you have to resort to cheap stuff like writing a letter praising yourself while faking it came from your father-in-law's mistress just so you can spite Jaya. Poor Jaya...she didn't deserve a trashy daughter-in-law. Karishma or Rani would have been much better. At least they came from well-known families.

This letter looks like it was written by Aishwarya herself. It has the same praises that Aishwarya has been heaping on herself since 90s. The style of writing and the words are so Aishwarya Rai lol

Show once if Aishwarya praised her in-laws or her husband. Just show if she ever praised or supported her in-laws once. Nah....she always praises her parents and daughter. She has never praised Abhishek so how do you expect her to praise her in-laws? Too bad Bachchans supported a snake who has been biting them since 2007. Well they brought home a girl from a low class family so that's what they get.

Bachchans brought home a snake. Fakewarya isn't loyal to anyone besides her mother. Poor Bachchans have learned the lesson the hard way. Join the club Bachchans... Salman and Vivek have been bitten by this snake Aishwarya too.

Anonymous 1 week ago

Aishwarya fans really don't remember how Bachchans worshiped Aishwarya and the way this snake Aishwarya treated them in return. Jaya used to praise Aishwarya everywhere and fought with people to treat Aishwarya with respect. Amitabh used to run after her like a dog. Abhishek has always supported his wife and Shweta has also praised her. But guess who hasn't praised her in-laws or acknowledge their support? Lol Aishwarya has never once praised anyone else except herself. She always says that her parents and Aaradhya are her world. What else did people expect...that this snake will be loyal to Bachchans lol she wasn't loyal to Salman or Vivek so why would snake be loyal to her in-laws.

This fake letter was published on Pinkvilla by Aish's PR. This liar doesn't leave any chance to use other's name to praise herself.

Your Aishwarya is just so sweet. She has been calling Rekha maa since she got married and became a Bachchan. She has hugged Rekha on stage and called her maa (she did this when Jaya was sitting in the crowd). She goes out of her way to be nice to Rekha. What a cheap shameless woman. She does it purposefully to spite and annoy Jaya and people praise her as the best daughter-in-law. Trashy Trashwarya can't change her trashy class.

Well Rekha rightfully gas the guts to say so ... you don’t hv to prove anything to the world... i think she meant the inlaws haha... but having said that very sweet of her.

Obviously will that khadoos saas or sisterin law shweta who has no husband will compliment Ash ?? Coz ash is too good for them . She has a lovely relationship with her husband & been a wonderful daughter in law. But its the bachchans ego after alll ... their own daughter could not keep up or look after her in laws & husband & has been living at her maika since god knows when ??? Will jaya acknowledge that ??? Oh pls she doesn’t spare the outsiders leave alone the bahu... well they say rt saas saas hi hoti hain... pv pls post

Aishwarya has proven that Bahu Bahu hei hoti hai. She has never supported her in-laws and always puts her parents first. A typical Bahu who doesn't give the same respect to her in-laws.

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Shweta has been living in her parents house just like Aishwarya has been living in her parents house after her separation with Abhishek. Why are you jealous? Are daughters not allowed to live with their parents?

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

I hope you don't have a daughter because you seem like a jealous woman who was not supported by her parents and in-laws. If you have a daughter you'll never protect her and if you have a son you'll be a khadoos saas to your Bahu because you yourself said saas saas hei hoti hai lol

If Shweta lives with her parents then why are you so mad? She is not living in your house or Aishwarya's house. The house belongs to Shweta's parents so she can live in it without answering to anyone.

Your Aishwarya has been separated from Abhishek for years and living with her parents since God knows when. Even in her public appearances she comes in a separate car with her mother and daughter only. Would you like to talk about how khadoos Vrinda and Aishwarya been a terrible saas and sister-in-law to Shrima?

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Why is Aishwarya occupying Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan's house? She doesn't hangout with her in-laws and Aaradhya has no relationship with her paternal grandparents. Still this greedy goldigger Aishwarya has been latching onto their house and wealth. Greedy low class girl from a low class family.

Too bad your mother is a bad saas to her daughter-in-law just like Vrinda Rai is a bad saas to Shrima Rai

What lovely relationship are you talking about? Have you ever seen Aishwarya talking about Abhishek? Abhishek once said in an interview that his wife has never mentioned him all she talks about is Aaradhya. Have you seen how rudely Aishwarya treats Abhishek in public and doesn't let him come near Aaradhya. Oh and how do you know she is a good daughter-in-law? She doesn't even interact with her in-laws and you're saying she is a good daughter-in-law lol

It's such a validation coming from a third person when actually shwetha or jaya should have penned these feelings. Swetha has always come across as snooty n reserved her compliments only for her family. Ash has been their family for 13 years but nothing good has ever been said about her by anyone other than Abhishek.

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Do you know Shweta personally? Have you ever seen Aishwarya's rude behavior with her in-laws? Go and watch a Diwali 2016 video on YouTube. Look at the rude expressions Aishwarya is giving to Jaya and Amitabh. Aishwarya completely ignores Jaya, Amitabh, and Shweta. Halfway through the video Shweta goes to say hi to Aishwarya and hug Aaradhya but Aishwarya quickly pulls Aaradhya away and ignores Shweta. Go and see the video to see how snobby and ill-mannered your Aishwarya is.

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Jaya has always praised Aishwarya and so has Shweta. But you know who has never praised her in-laws? Yes, you're right...it is your Aishwarya. Her in-laws worshiped her but she is a snake who is not loyal to anyone. Why hasn't Aishwarya ever praised her in-laws? Aishwarya has been in the family for 13 years but she has never praised her in-laws once. All Aishwarya does is praise her parents and her daughter. Aishwarya has never even praised her husband Abhishek so why would she bother to praise her in-laws.
