has arrived and has brought with itself the season of love. Staying
the season, we bring to you this month a couple who epitomizes love -
Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan. Rai is the beauty who entranced the world,
won Miss World
Pageant and turned out to be one of the superstars of Bollywood.
Bachchan on the other hand is
the Prince of Bollywood, son of the legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan
and Jaya Bachchan. Thus when this duo came together, their couple looked
right out of fairy tale, not any less
than a royal couple.
and Bachchan's friendship goes way back to August 1997 when Bobby Deol
introduced them to each other. Around that time, Rai was in Switzerland with
Deol to shoot for her first film in Bollywood, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya
. The attraction didn't pick up pace and both of
them parted ways.
duo next came to work together in movies including Dhai Akshar Prem Ke (2000) and Kuch
Naa Kaho (2003) all the time continuing to be good friends. But as they say,
que sera sera - when two people are destined to be together, they will get
together. Rumour mills have it that romance brewed between the two on the sets
of Bunty Aur Babli (2005) where Rai
shot for the item song "Kajra Re" which went on to become the biggest hit of
couple kept a low profile about any interaction given their respective bitter
break-ups, but the attraction was strong enough not to evade the eyes of
together for Umrao Jaan in 2006 brought
the duo face to face for a longer period. Their love story took off then
continued on the sets of Dhoom 2 (2006) and
Guru (2007) as well. This was the time when
romance was at its peak and love blossomed between the two.
the lovers were not to be united with ease, until and unless their love suffered
hardships and troubles. If Rai's planets hadn't created enough trouble already,
to add insult to injury, the kiss between Rai and co-actor Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 2 had earned Bachchan family's disapproval.
Despite all said and done, finally after the premiere of Guru in New York, the Prince of Bollywood proposed to his Beauty and
they embarked on the journey of being bound to each other for eternity.
two got married on 20th April 2007 and have completed 7 years of matrimony this
year. Their wedding was a lavish affair, suitable for the royal couple of
Bollywood. The year 2011 blessed the couple with a lovely daughter Aaradhya, who
has now become a darling to the whole country.
marriage, they worked together in only two movie - Sarkar Raj (2008) and Raavan (2010)
out of which the former was a critical success, while the later bombed both commercially
and critically. It is said that the couple have given successful movies
only when they were not paired opposite each other, whether they worked together
in the film or not. These comments aside, they are often referred to as the Bollywood
industry's Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Recently,
rumours did rounds of the relationship treading on rough waters and a possible
divorce. But Bachchan came out in the open and laughed off the news denying all
parts of it.
Even after so many years, the couple
continues to rule the media and the hearts of their fans with their charismatic
presence and power packed performances. BollyCurry wishes the couple success in
all their upcoming projects and hopes to keep seeing more of their magnificent
