Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, adored by millions of fans around the globe, were established Bollywood superstars long before they fell in love and got married in April 2007, in a quiet, private ceremony attended by close friends and family. The wedding was preceded by a traditional Sangeet (music) celebration and a Mehendi (henna) ceremony.
By Hollywood standards, the ceremonies were successfully guarded against an anticipated media circus though they were dramatically punctuated by one bizarre incident in which a fledgling actress—claiming to be groom's secret lover—publicly slit her wrists in protest.
Bollywood’s most wanted couple enjoyed their honeymoon in Venice. But the wedding has left many others wanting to enjoy the knot. Aishwarya Rai is a name that sure comes with value, and the value isn’t small—it runs into crores. Rai’s entry into the Bachchan Family has made the Bachchan clan worth Rs 700 crore!
The following are photos and videos of the wedding.
