Aishwarya-Abhishek complete 7 years of marital bliss – The Journey
Engaged on 14th January 2007, Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan went on to get married on April 20th the same year.
How it started:
Abhishek Bachchan, on a television show once described how exactly the marriage came on cards for him and Rai. Abhishek decided to propse Aishwarya during an Indian award event, for which he called his father on the spot in order to take permission. After his father’s approval, he went on to propse Rai and she accepted it.
The two have appeared in two films together long before they tied the knot, Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke and Kuch Naa Kaho.
The couple got married according to traditional Hindu rites, including Bunt, North Indian and Bengali ceremonies. Even though their marriage functions were kept away from the eye of media, it was one of the biggest Indian wedding to be talked about on almost all television channels. Major news channels kept on discussing the wedding with only limited coverage of the actual event, almost all day long.
