Abhishek Bachchan Recounts Love Story with Aishwarya Rai When He Was a ‘Production Boy’
He said on YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia’s podcast, “I first met her when I was a production boy. There was a film my father was making called Mrityudata, and I had gone for the location recce to Switzerland because the company felt that because I had grown up in Switzerland in boarding school that I would be able to take them to nice locations.”
He continued, “I had been there for a couple of days, all alone. And that’s when a childhood friend of mine, Bobby Deol, was shooting for his first film — Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. And he got to know I was there and said ‘Hey, why don’t you come over for dinner?'”
He added, “And that’s the first time when they were shooting when I met Aishwarya.”
Abhishek said that the second movie he worked for was Dhai Akshar Prem Ke. That movie also starred Aishwarya and the two got a chance to work together. Post that, they did several films together. The duo also developed a good bond of friendship before deciding to get married.
Asked if he ‘crushed on’ her during this time, Abhishek said, “Who doesn’t crush on her? I mean, come on, come on.”
The couple has worked together on films such as Guru, Raavan, Sarkar Raaj, Umrao Jaan, Dhoom 2, and many others.
