Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Birthday: On Life, Love And The Center Of Her Universe, Aaradhya 'I Wonder How I Lived Before Aaradhya Was Born' - EXCLUSIVE
I don’t remember  when I  spoke to Aishwarya Rai first. But it was definitely  long before she became Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And we’ve marveled at the amazing ways of providence, to have put a ‘Rai’ in her name long before the Bachchans came in to her life. Aapki kya Rai hai?As  we all know Big B’s father’s name was  Harivansh Rai Bachchan.“It all sort of came  together, didn’t it?”  Aishwarya (never ‘Ash’ to me as I abhor nicknames) laughed her trademark laughter.

It sure did. Nazar  na lag jaye. Lekin  Aishwarya has a perfect life. A loving devoted husband,  the only star-husband on Planet Bollywood who has never had even a minor distraction since marriage, non-interfering parents-in-law and a daughter  who is growing up to be just like her mother.

Aaradhya is one of the most well-mannered,  courteous, intelligent and articulate children  I’ve ever come across. She knows exactly how to answer every question and if you ask her something silly she will sigh and try not to  make you feel stupid. You can see her mother’s influence in every action and gesture of hers.




Abhishek calls Aishwarya the best mother in the world. I have certainly not seen a more dedicated mother. Aaradhya doesn’t only come first for Aishwarya, she comes first last and whatever comes in-between. Nothing and no one, not even her mother and husband (the two people who matter the most to her) get priority over Aaradhya.

Aishwarya once  told me, “Aaradhya and I have a soul connect. My day begins and ends with her. From the moment I wake up my entire perspective on the day is centred  on her. Her constant presence in my life is not even something I consciously think about it. It’s just there! And I wonder how I lived before she was born. Only a parent would understand how I feel. To me my world changed the day Aaradhya was born. Everything is the same around me. But she has changed the way I look at the world. The  world that I now occupy with my daughter is my reality. Everything else is a secondary.”

To see Aishwarya  so  supremely  adjusted to the Bachchan  family and so  much at peace with her  roles  as  daughter, daughter-in-law,  wife and  mother  gives me great joy. 

How  can anyone have  such a  perfect  life?  Javed Akhtar Saab once told me how perfection scares humanity. “They look at Aishwarya and say, ‘How can  anyone be  so beautiful? Chal  jhooti!”


Being Aishwarya Rai Bachchan comes with a price. There will always be those who think her ideal life is a fake. To them I say,  damn your cynicism! She is beautiful and she does have a beautiful life. If that makes some unhappy, then so be it.
