Here’s how Abhishek Bachchan Reacted when Oprah Questioned Aishwarya Rai for not Kissing Onscreen


It is Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai’s 13th wedding anniversary. The couple tied the knot on April 20, 2007. In 2009 they came on a television interview of The Oprah Winfrey Show. During that interview, Aishwarya was questioned about not being kissed onscreen. Here’s how Abhishek responded to Aishwarya not kissing onscreen.

“I understand you have never been kissed on camera,” Oprah had asked Aishwarya. After a brief pause, Aishwarya leaned towards Abhishek and said, “Go on baby” following which Abhishek gave her a peck on the cheek. The couple, Oprah and the audience present all burst out laughing.

Here’s how Abhishek Bachchan Reacted when Oprah Questioned Aishwarya Rai for not Kissing Onscreen

Talking about how kissing scenes do not seem to be a necessity to Indians, Abhishek had replied to the question. Not a lot of it happens as openly as in the West. It is not a thing about being accepted or not, it is not required. I don’t think the Indian audience feels it is required. To put it this way I think, if we make up a scene, for example, the boy meets a girl, they fall in love, they want to express their love for each other in the west they will kiss and there they are in love. In India, we break into a song. Isn’t that more interesting? You have this intimate moment and then suddenly snap cut, you are in the mountains and you are singing and dancing. It’s a lot more interesting, I’d much rather that.”

Aishwarya added, “We have a song. Immediately, We’ve so much fun.”

The couple has worked together in several films like Dhai Akshar Prem Ke in 2000, Kuch Naa Kaho in 2003, Umrao Jaan and Dhoom 2 in 2006, Guru in 2007, Raavan in 2010 among others.

They got married in a private ceremony. Their marriage happened in Prateeksha, Amitabh Bachchan’s residence in Mumbai. Aishwarya gave birth to their first child Aaradhya in 2011.
