Abhishek Aishwarya Marriage Anniversary: Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan had married Ek Duje in the year 2007, the wedding of both of them was kept very private along with a star-studded event. This star couple had taken seven rounds with each other on 20th April. There were all kinds of news about the marriage of both of them in the film industry. Most of these things happened that due to some fault, Aishwarya Rai was married to a tree before Abhishek.
Aishwarya Rai married a tree
During that time it was said that in an ancient ritual, she was married to a tree to ward off ‘bad luck’. In the year 2008, Aishwarya Rai talked about this with NDTV, and said that it is especially embarrassing when foreign journalists ask her about her international tour. When asked if there were aspects of the wedding that she didn’t expect, Aishwarya said, “Some (of the uproar) was expected, but some of it we didn’t even dream of”.
the family kept denying
When asked what specifically she was referring to, Aishwarya said, “There were some incidents, but why focus more on it.” Asked if she was talking about the tree controversy, Aishwarya said, “Yeah, there was a lot of it. I just thought it was so unnecessary. The kind of prime time, the kind of news coverage and magazine covers. All those stories made for this were unnecessary. The best part was that we are strong as a family. We are all in the public eye, and we have had enough opportunities to voice ourselves, but don’t try to create a ruckus. Instead, we thought it better to call it off. Pa met the media at a very specific time, the wedding, and answered all the questions.”
Was the worship done in Varanasi?
A year before their wedding, reports started doing the rounds that the couple had left for Varanasi to perform ‘Kumbh Vivah’. A 2006 Hindustan Times report quoted an astrologer as saying, “Abhishek and Aishwarya were in the holy city (Varanasi) on my suggestion. I advised both the families to perform this puja at the ancient Shiva temple.” The Bachchan family has repeatedly denied that any such ceremony took place.
Abhishek had tweeted in 2016, “And just for the record, we are still looking for this tree.” In 2007, Amitabh told The Times of India that the family was not superstitious at all, and had not even seen Aishwarya’s ‘Janampatri’. He said, “Where is the tree? Please show it to me. The only person she has married is my son.”
