Do Ash-Abhi make a great couple?



It has been a year since Aishwarya and Abhishek have tied the knot. Speculations were gaining momentum whether Ash would able to carry the heritage of Bachchan family with pride and dignity. But she has maintained a good balance of her career and family.

Abhi too never missed any opportunity to celebrate her success. Jodhaa Akbar was Aishwarya s first mega hit after marriage and during the premiere,the Bachchan family stood beside Ash. Ash-Abhi never makes public display of their personal emotions but they hold a high esteem and love for each other in their heart.

In spite of hectic schedule, they find time to spend with each other. Do they make the perfect couple? Here's what some of the stars have to say...

NDTVMovies.com: Do Ash-Abhi make a great couple?

Celina Jaitely: Yes, They do make a great couple today because both are still tied to their traditional values and yet they have a very modern approach in life.

Parmita Katkar: Post marriage Aish has done a few good films and there is a huge change in the her image today. She still figures among the happening girls of the film industry. Similar is the case with Abhishek Bachchan. Over a period of time, he has emerged very confident. I think They are the hottest couple of the film industry.

Koena Mitra: They understand each other very well. When they are out in public, the kind of mutual respect gets reflected from their relationship is just great. No doubt they are among great couple like Amitji and Jayaji in the film industry.

Neha Dhupia: I like the way they look together. It seems that they are very much made for each other. It s great couple of the industry.

NDTVMovies.com: How will you wish them on their anniversary?

Parmita Katkar: With a lot of good wishes

Koena Mitra: With a wish to be with each other for janam janam.

Neha Dhupia: With a wish to be together for the whole life.

NDTVMovies.com: Should film stars marry only films stars?

Celina Jaitely: If both the two understand each other and have respect for each other, there is nothing wrong in going ahead and getting married.

Parmita Katkar: Depends from person to person. It may not be successful in every case because we have seen marriages between two film stars being broken. It all depends on how much both of them cooperate for each other.

Koena Mitra: It has not been successful in some cases also so we can t say that film stars should only marry film stars. At the same time there are also stars who got married outside the industry and their marriage are going very well. Compatibility in the relationship is more important than the profession they belong to.

Neha Dhupia: Marrying with someone from the same profession creates a lot of problem in marriage.

    Ash-Abhi’s extended honeymoon

    2008/5/15 11:22:27

    Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai had a wonderful time in a village near Hyderabad while shooting for Sarkar Raj, finds Prithwish Ganguly.

    Want to know where Ash-Abhi went straight after their honeymoon at the sun kissed beaches of Tahiti? Well, they didn’t go to a temple, but straight to a village near Hyderabad to shoot for Sarkar Raj.

    But there’s something that they were not prepared for — the warm reception from the local villagers.

    The unit of Sarkar Raj, Ram Gopal Varma’s ambitious sequel to the hit gangster film Sarkar, had selected two villages Anjanpur and Polkam Palli (near Hyderabad) as the shooting sites for one of the most crucial scenes that involved both Abhishek and Aishwarya.

    The villagers knew that the duo had come down to the sets immediately after their honeymoon and wanted to make their visit to the village a memorable one.

    “As soon as the villagers came to know that the couple had come from their honeymoon directly to the shoot, the old women of the village decided to host a welcome befitting a village bahu,” the source said.

    The newly weds were then invited to take part in the village ceremony generally hosted when a newly wed bahu comes back to the village after marriage. “They requested that the couple should join them in the village for a welcome ceremony too. The women sang traditional songs and gave Aishwarya green bangles and sindoor,” the source added.

    The Sarkar Raj sets were a kind of an extended honeymoon for the couple as the duo was seen constantly sticking to each other.

    Sarkar Raj is one of the most awaited films this year not only because Abhi-Ash comes on screen for the first time together after their marriage, but also because the film is one big Bachchan family affair with Amitabh Bachchan playing the role of the godfather.

    Rakhi & Abhishek break up!!!

    2008/2/13 12:25:26

    They seemed like a couple who could take on the entire world together but last Monday night saw a ugly fight which not only left bad taste in both Rakhi and Abhishek's mouth but also made them go seperate ways.

    It all started when Abhishek brought DJ Shezwood, Rakhi's rakhi brother, to her house to discuss their new project. Rakhi was as usual talking passionately about her career and the direction it was taking when Abhi tried to butt in to make his point.

    Rakhi didn’t take kindly to his comments and an argument ensued. The things got so ugly that Rakhi asked Abhishek to pack his bags and leave. Abhishek didn’t take kindly to this insult and stormed out.

    We hear that now he is DJ Sheijwood and the couple had not spoken to each other after their fight.

    When contacted Abhishek confirmed that the couple is no longer together. He says, “Yes it’s true that we have broken up, but I don’t want to speak about it.”

    Ask him about what went wrong in their relationship, he says, “We did have a fight but I am desperately trying to get through to Rakhi. It was a minor argument that escalated into something big.

    I also lost my temper and ended up saying things; which, in retrospect, seem harsh. I want to talk to her and make her understand my point of view. I hope that she forgets and forgives whatever happened.”

    Apprantly pained by the entire episode Rakhi says, “I am not in a frame of mind to talk about Abhishek and don’t know how to react to this situation."

    We also hear that the couple was in talks with Balaji Telefilms for another reality television show.

    Tells Rakhi, “Yes, I would love to work with Ekta Kapoor. She has offered us a reality television show.” Will she team up with Abhishek after the unpleasant break-up? She says: “I have no idea about Abhishek, but I will definitely do the show once it works out.”

    The couple who started living-in after Rakhi’s elimination from Big Boss in November 2006 were last seen together as the finalists on Nach Baliye 3.

    Hrithik and Abhishek make up after the Ash-Hrithik kiss saga

    2007/1/5 16:31:32

    Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan have been childhood friends and have always shared a warm relationship. Unfortunately recently the relationship between Hrithik and Abhishek soured when the Bachchans disapproved of the Ash-Hrithik kiss in Dhoom 2. Abhishek and his family were not happy that Ash and Hrithik shared a hot passionate kiss on-screen which changed Ash’s demure image to one that was bold and daring. Ash and Abhi have been seeing each other for a while now and there have also been rumours of an impending marriage. Recently Ash accompanied Abhishek and Amitabh for photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar launch. Hrithik and his wife Suzanne Roshan too attended the same event.

    Ash accompanied Amitabh and Abhishek in the same car to the event giving fuel to speculation about the impending nuptials of the two actors soon. The three seemed extremely comfortable and were in a playful mood with each other as they made their entry to the venue. However on reaching inside the venue, Abhishek came across Hrithik and his wife Suzanne, thus he was forced to greet the couple cordially and after realizing that the media was trying to capture these moments, he warmed up to the duo. Even Amitabh and Ash greeted Hrithik and his wife warmly and the two families tried to put on their warm smiles and greeted each other with warm hugs.

    However there were several uncomfortable moments, Ash was seen standing away from the rest of the happy group several times and even her face looked tense on several occasions while bonding with the Roshans. Hrithik at times too seemed uncomfortable but managed to cover up his anxiousness for the cameras. Sources claim ‘Dabboo who is a friend of both Abhishek and Hrithik had insisted that Duggu (Hrithik) come for the launch because that was the only way to break the ice between Abhi and Hrithik. They have been school friends and it was really unpleasant for both of them not to talk to each other for such a long while.”

    Well it was imperative that Hrithik and Abhishek bury their differences over the kiss issue, as the Hrithik-Ash pair will be seen in another film, Akbar-Jodha soon. The chemistry between Hrithik-Ash was sizzling in Dhoom 2 and the two of them looked great together on-screen.

    Abhishek and Bobby ride bike like their fathers

    2007/6/2 12:52:14

    Like father, like son. The adage perfectly suits Abhishek Bachchan and Bobby Deol.

    Decades ago, their fathers Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra rode a motorbike for the song 'Yeh Dosti' in Ramesh Sippy's movie 'Sholay'.

    Now, Abhishek and Bobby are acting together for the first time in Shaad Ali's forthcoming movie 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'.

    One scene in the film has Bobby and Abhi riding a bike. When the scene was to be shot, Shaad Ali came upon the idea of shooting the scene with a similar motorbike that Amitabh and Dharmendra had rode in 'Sholay'.

    A similar bike was arranged. Like their fathers, Bobby was made to sit on the driver's seat while Abhi sat in the attached buggy.

    Emotions ran high when the unitmembers saw both Abhi and Bobby seated on the bike just like their fathers did in 'Sholay'. After the shot, everyone on the sets clapped.

    However, before the shot was taken, Abhishek was a bit scared sitting in the buggy because he was not confident of Bobby's driving skills. Bobby doesn't drive the bike very often and this was certainly a cause of concern to Abhi.

    'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' has Bobby and Abhi pairing with Preity Zinta and Lara Dutta. Amitabh Bachchan plays the sutradhar in the film.

    Both Abhi and Bobby sport very stylish looks in the film. Abhishek sports a different hairdo (long tresses) with a hairband and sharply tweaked moustache. Bobby also dons different looks. Some scenes have him in straight black hair. Others have him sporting long, blondish hair.

    The movie's music is given by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The film is set to release on June 15.

    Ash-Abhishek to wed in 2007?

    2006/10/28 16:38:14 The marriage of top Bollywood stars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai is certain to take place in February 2007, according to Bachchan family astrologer Chandrashekhara Swamiji.

    He has revealed this news to highly circulated Kannada newspaper Vijayakarnataka.

    Swamiji, who lives in his ashram in Bangalore's RT Nagar, is astrologer to many film personalities including Dr Raj Kumar's family and producer Rockline Venkatesh. According to sources, Aishwarya and Abhishek visited the Swami several times during the Karnataka schedule of their film Guru, directed by Mani Ratnam.

    The film was shot in Hospet and several places in Northern Karnataka, and the couple visited the Swamiji to consult him on many matters, including a probable marriage date. The Swami is believed to have scrutinised the celestial birthday Jathakas of the couple before giving them his advice.

    Chandrashekhara Swamiji has been in regular contact with the Bachchans. He has reportedly also conducted havans and poojas for the family's well being. Apparently, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan also visited the ashram a year ago.

    Swamiji has revealed that Aishwarya will probably make an announcement of her marriage on November 1, her birthday. According to the report, Aishwarya (born in Dhanu Rashi) and Abhishek (born in Kumbha Rashi) could have had some problems. The marriage was likely to face roadblocks in 2006, the astrologer had felt.

    But, from October 27, when the planetary positions change, both Ash and Abhi will have the support of Jupiter (Guru-bruhaspathi).

    The Swami, who has closely studied Ash's Jathaka, feels that the number eight is not compatible for her and marriage in 2006 -- which adds up to 8 -- would have led to trouble for the couple. 'That is why I advised them to marry in 2007,' he explains, 'which adds up to 9, a lucky number for both Aishwarya and Abhishek.'

Family pundits have been invited for this solemn affair, which will follow the Arya Samaj rites. Ash will wear a hand-woven sari with golden zari embroidery by Lulla, while Abhi will wear an Abu-Sandeep sherwani.

    Bipasha told IANS, "I joined John in Mumbai from Dubai where I'm shooting for Abbas-Mustan's 'Race'.

    "I didn't return to Mumbai to be with John. Please! We spent more than enough time together in London for 'Goal'. We were both needed for the shampoo event. John really wanted to meet his mother. We barely got a chance to spend any time together. Before we knew it John was back in London and I am in Dubai."

    This is one couple that believes in giving each other space. "I don't think there's any lack of time together. Any more would be unacceptable to both of us."

    His chubbiness notwithstanding, Abhishek Bachchan can’t resist a bite of chocolate after every meal.Yes, the junior Bachchan has a big weakness for chocolates, the very sight of which often sends him drooling.

    My new album is less moody: Anoushka Shankar

    2008/1/16 17:03:13

    After her last album Rise, which was nominated for a Grammy, Anoushka Shankar is out with her latest album with percussionist and producer Karsh Kale that has contributions from Sting and Norha Jones as well as her father, Pt Ravi Shankar and Shankar Mahadevan. Reshil Charles caught up with her and Karsh to find out more.

    Reshil Charles: Anoushka the album is called Breathing Under Water, I reckon, can you tell just a bit about the album.

    Anoushka Shankar: It is a mix of a whole bunch of things. The main thing about this record is that it is a collaboration between Karsh and myself. It is definitely building further than when I was making Rise. I have gained from that and went further. But is very different, it is less moody record.

    Karsh Kale: What we were excited about was all the different places that we have been and how we could take all those journeys and make it even bigger. My contribution was my experience as an artist, as a producer, and as a composer.

    Reshil Charles: We want to see you on the Live Circuit, we don’t want to see you in the Kamani Auditorium with a sitar, which is great of course, but we want to see you in the clubs and see you experimenting, are we going to see any of that this year?

    Anoushka Shankar: Hopefully, I am actually doing the classical circuit this time. I have got a couple of shows in support of the World Food Programme, of which I am ambassador. We have got a couple of shows around the country for the album that we will be doing, so obviously it will be a very different type of tone.

    Reshil Charles: So you have a great time and best of luck with the album.

    Abhishek Bachchan has no time to perform at Star Screen Awards

    2006/12/29 14:40:11

    Abhishek Bachchan recently received the Yash Bharati Award and is busy shooting for his forthcoming films. Abhishek was recently seen in Dhoom 2, but although the film received good reviews, Abhi was severely criticized for his appearance as well as his performance. Also his last film Umrao Jaan with supposed girlfriend Ash did not set the cash registers ringing at the box-office. Now at the beginning of next year, once again Ash-Abhi will be seen in Mani Ratnam’s Guru. Abhi is placing all his hopes on this film as he is said to have a very strong character and role in the film. Abhishek was also seen performing at the GIFA awards held in Malaysia. Recently the organizers of Star Screen Awards approached the actor to perform for their awards function, but unfortunately the actor had to refuse due to busy shooting schedules.

    Last year Abhishek Bachchan received the award for Best Comic Actor at the Star Screen Awards for his role in the film Bunty Aur Babli. The awards will now be held on the 6th January 2007 but Abhishek who was approached to perform for the show will be busy shooting for Goldie Behl’s film. However some sources claim that when the actor was approached to perform for the awards ceremony he quoted an exorbitant amount as remuneration, hence the organizers decided to approach some one else to perform. But Sandeep Khosla, who will be directing the show, says “Fifteen days back we contacted Abhishek for the finale act. But he did not have dates for rehearsals. He was shooting for Goldie Behl’s film and said he would not be able to give time for drills. But our talks did not reach the stage where we needed to discuss money, but yes we do definitely have a different budget allocation for different acts.”

    Now Star has approached some other big stars to perform for their awards ceremony. Abhishek’s popularity has been continuously on the rise even though the actor has not had many hits to his credit. Nonetheless the actor has received several popular viewers’ choice awards like the “most sexy actor’ and ‘gay icon’ tags. So could Abhishek actually be putting up his price in tandem with his growing popularity? However Bunty Walia who handles Abhi’s work claims that the remuneration was not the problem, but Abhi was informed too late and did not have the time to accommodate rehearsals.

    Rani Mukherjee is a very upset girl these days. It is said that it is due to the engagement of Ash with Abhi. At one time they were romantically linked more so with the film Bunti aur Babli. Rani appears to be visibly disappointed but is not letting it show.

    She has not come face to face with Abhisekh after his engagement. In fact, she went to great lengths to avoid coming face to face with Abhisekh Bachchan when accompanied mother Jaya Bachchan on the sets of ‘Choodiyan’. Rani and Jaya are acting together in the film.

    Sallu-Katrina ka nikaah?

    2007/4/13 12:22:03

    Yesterday morning, a crowd of around 500 persons collected outside Galaxy Apartments, Salman Khan's Bandra residence. The crowds were excitedly discussing Salman's marriage to girlfriend Katrina Kaif.

    According to the rumours, the duo had gotten married in a hush-hush ceremony on Tuesday. The crowds wanted a glimpse of the happy couple.

    Says a source from the film industry, "The industry has been abuzz with speculation about the Salman-Katrina marriage ever since the Abhi-Ash wedding date had been announced.

    Some people even thought that Salman and Katrina would announce their wedding date a day before or the same day as the Abhi-Ash wedding (April 20) and upstage their event." And that's where the wedding rumours apparently started.

    Kat's in Dubai

    When contacted, Katrina Kaif burst into laughter. "I think everyone has gone mad! I couldn't have got married yesterday! I have been shooting for Abbas-Mustan's Race with Akshaye Khanna in Dubai for the last three days.

    Right now, I have just come back from shopping with my sister Isabel who is with me in Dubai, and we are having a gala time shopping and enjoying the food."

    Wait a little longer

    According to a source in Star Plus, "Everyone knows that Salman and Katrina have shot for KBC3 with Shah Rukh but what no one knows is that this episode was planned to coincide with the Bachchan-Rai wedding.

    Shah Rukh Khan's KBC3 starring Katrina and Salman will be aired on April 19 (just a day before the wedding). It will be one of the most viewed shows on air and will garner high TRPs as Salman and Katrina together have never come on TV for a show. So while the media will be busy trying to catch what's happening on the wedding that day, the viewers will be sitting at home watching KBC3."

    When asked about her return to Mumbai, Kat says, "I am coming back at the end of the month," says Katrina. That rules out marriage for Sal-Kat at least on April 20!
