Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were in the capital for the launch of the Stardust magazine cover, which presented them as "India's No.1 Power Couple". It was a wonderful night of music, glitz and glamour. While Aishwarya looked stunning in a red anarkali suit, Abhishek stole
the show with his wit and humour.
Nari Hira, Chairman and MD of Magna Publishing Company launched the cover with Abhi-Ash. Ashwin Varde, editor of Stardust, credited Abhishek for conceptualising the cover. Bachchan junior said, "I made it happen, she (Aishwarya) made it watch able." Abhishek read his first Stardust when he was 18.
So how was the experience to shoot the cover? "We didn't know we were going to be the 'No.1 Power Couple'. Ashwin is very sweet. He has actually been running after me for a very long time to do a cover. But unfortunately, both of us have been very busy working, so we couldn't take out the time to come down and shoot it. He was very persistent and finally it happened. We had a lot of fun. We shot it with Jatin Kampani. We kept it generally easy; we didn't want it to be stiff and posed. We were always on time, we are a very punctual family," told Abhishek.
Abhi- AshAishwarya, too had a great time, "Ashwin has been interacting with Abhishek for a while. He has been generous and it was sweet on his part to accord such a sweet title to the picture on the cover. We had fun shooting it. Mickey was on make-up, I have known him since my 1st shoot and he's like family to us. There was a very warm atmosphere for us, not referring to the 1st day of fever that I had (laughs). It was a great time shooting for the cover."
Abhishek, who belongs to a big Bollywood family, comes across as a very humble person. So is it the real him? "Is that really me? It's very simple actually. You remain grounded when you go home to Mr. Amitabh Bachchan everyday. You have a wonderful day, fans take autographs, wonderful people take photographs, and you feel nice and inflated up in your head. Then you go home and Mr. Amitabh Bachchan opens the door and you are shown your place right there. I was always brought up in a very normal family. And thankfully, my wife is also like that," explained Abhi.
There have been a lot of expectations from Aishwarya. Is there a pressure that she has to carry forward as a wife, daughter-in-law and actor? "I think expectations prepare you. You try to give your best to whatever you take on. That's the schoolish attitude I have had since school. You just try and deliver. Do best to any commitment you have taken on, professionally or personally. The word underlining you is commitment and once you believe that, you try to give it your all. I'm extremely grateful to all of God's blessings and people's generosity," stated Ash.
Can we hope to see the Bachchans together onscreen? "I think we would love to do a film together but they don't think us worthy of casting us all together (jokes). Nobody has written such a script and we will be more than happy to do it. But having said that, we are individuals here. We don't do a film just because we have an opportunity to work together. Everybody has to be excited by their part and the script of the film. We hope to work together," informed Abhishek.
Abhishek, as star, is always in the limelight. Does he wish to have a normal life? "Being in the profession we are, this is are normal life, this is what we do normally (laughs). It depends personally and on what kind of life you want to lead. It's very important to have a normal atmosphere at home. Thankfully, it's not just the two of us. We both live with our parents. We have a very normal family life at home. And media attention is a part of our profession, we embrace it and enjoy it. It's as normal as you want it to be," told AB junior.
Will the Bachchans go to IIFA awards this year? "If we are free and not working, then yes. At the end of the day, actors prefer to do films than go to award functions. If we don't do films, we won't get nominated next year (laughs), so we have to concentrate on our work," exclaimed Abhi.
