There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a couple together, who are clearly very much in love and it is always nice to hear a loved up couple speaking about one another in such high praise. That is exactly what happened recently, for the beautiful Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, who has received some very kind and loving words from her husband Abhishek Bachchan.
Bachchan beamed, "Aishwarya is my anchor. She is my buddy, my closest friend. I can discuss anything with her. Our relationship is not based on her being Aishwarya Rai or me coming from an illustrious family. It is just about two people falling in love which has organically grown. We started during Guru. It was meant to be."
He added, "The first time I met Aishwarya was in August 1997. I was on a recce for my father's film Mrityudata in Switzerland and she was shooting her first film, Aur Pyar Ho. I remember one evening Bobby [Deol, her co-star] invited me to his hotel for dinner and Aishwarya was there. That was the first time I actually met her."
Following that first meeting way back in 1997, things have never been the same for this loved up couple, who have gone on to enjoy a very happy and loving life together. The couple did not get together right away though and it was not until they filmed the 2006 movie Dhoom 2 together, that Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan started dating. In January 2007, it was announced that the couple were engaged, going on to tie the knot in the April.
