Aishwarya Wedding Details!
Mehendi ki raat
Following the Sangeet is the Mehendi (Henna) ceremony, which will also take place at Pratiksha on April 19.Ash's outfit for this ceremony is a red zari-embroidered ghagra choli designed by her favourite designer, Neeta Lulla. The henna for the grand wedding is being specially brought from Sojat, Rajasthan. It is the same place from where Liz Hurley got henna for her wedding. Sojat and its surrounding areas in the Pali district of the state boast of the most intensive henna cultivation in India. Up to 90 per cent of Rajasthan's commercial henna production is in this area.
KANPUR: The Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai wedding might be a quiet affair, but a sweetshop owner here is planning to present his famous 'laddoos' to the couple, though uninvited.
Prakash Pandey, the maker of Kanpur's famous 'Thaggu-ke-Laddoo', says he would carry fifty one kilograms of his laddoo to Mumbai for the wedding.
He said some scenes in Abhishek-Rani Mukherjee starrer 'Bunty aur Babli' were shot near his shop, during which the actors tasted and appreciated the laddoos. They had even taken packed laddoos to Mumbai.
Pandey said Abhishek called him 'Mama' (uncle) when he was here.
"Since director of the film Shad Ali, who is the son of former MP and CPM leader Subhashini Ali, used call me 'mama', Abhishek also called me 'mama'. So being his maternal uncle, I am fulfilling my responsibility by taking laddoos to Mumbai on April 17."
Asked if he got the invitation for the marriage, Pandey said he had been taking laddoos for them to Mumbai. "I am known to Amitabh and Abhishek and there is no problem."
Pandey added that the laddoos
he is planning to carry will be made of 'kajoo' (cashew nut) and 'badam'
(almonds) and those who taste them once would remember it for ever.
Aishwarya is Ideal for
Just a few days remain when Abhishek and Ash are going to exchange marital vows and become partners for life. However, for the Bachchans, Ash has already become a part of their family.
On Karan Johar’s show ‘Koffee With Karan’, Jaya Bachchan candidly expressed her admiration for Aishwarya.
Just at the mention of Aishwarya, Jaya Bachchan said: “She is lovely. I love her. I have always loved her.”
Jaya Bachchan said the most admirable thing about Ash was how she fitted into the Bachchan family.
“I have never ever seen her push herself whenever we are all together. I like that quality of hers to stand behind. She is quiet. She listens and she is taking it all in. And another beautiful thing is that she has fitted in so well in the family. She knows who are our good friends,” Mrs Bachchan told Karan Johar.
When Johar asked if Aishwarya is the ideal Mrs. Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan said convincingly: “I think so.”
Jaya also told Johar how her husband, Amitabh Bachchan , had become fond of Aishwarya.
“The minute she (Ash) comes in it is like our daughter Shweta coming home for Amitji, and he lights up. I think that she will fill the vacuum that Shweta left behind,” Jaya Bachchan said.
Besides Mrs Bachchan, the show’s other guests were Shweta Bachchan, actress and MP Hema Malini and her daughter Esha Deol. The episode was aired on Sunday, April 15, on Star World.
Aishwarya and Abhishek: Honeymoon in Tahiti
02nd May 2007
Newly wed couple Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are honeymooning apparently in Tahiti after passing through New Zealand over the weekend.
On arrival at Auckland, Ash and Abhishek reportedly disembarked using a separate entrance from other business class passengers for their onward journey to Tahiti. They did not exit the Auckland airport.
Reports add that Ash and Abhishek were escorted out of a Singapore Airlines flight through a separate entrance, which separated them from the other business class passengers, on their arrival in Auckland. Later they headed towards Tahiti.
The Singapore Airlines staffer requested a female passenger who was on the same flight as Ash and Abhi, to give up her front-row business class seat so that a 'young honeymoon celebrity couple' and their two security personnel could sit together.
