On June 20th midnight, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted to his fans “NEWS NEWS NEWS !! I AM GOING TO BECOME A GRANDFATHER .. AISHWARYA EXPECTING .. SO HAPPY AND THRILLED !!!” So there is the confirmation by the Big B himself :)
It was just minutes that Amitabh disclosed the news, the family was flooded with congratulatory messages in both real and virtual worlds. “Overwhelmed with your wishes and blessings. 2843 new tweets in half an hour! Thank you all! Your affection and love is so touching” Amitabh Bachchan tweeted later.
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, who recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, this April, will be expecting their first child. The pair thanked their fans on Wednesday evening. They said “We are very happy and would like to thank all our well-wishers for their love, support and blessings“.
Abhishek Bachchan, is running high on emotions as he admits last night, as he quotes “We’ve all been trying to inform all our close friends about it. How do I feel? It’s not sunk in yet. There’s been no time. We’re still busy sharing the news with our friends. The realization will come later. Right now I’m, kind of, numb. It’s a big moment, yes.”
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, feels quiet the same way however is much more composed. She said “I guess it couldn’t be kept quiet. So now you know why I’ve been trying to stay out of the public eye lately. It’s still to sink in, really. Of course, Abhishek and I are super happy. But it is a matter of happiness for our entire family. And that makes all the difference“.
Amitabh Bachchan’s next tweets were:
“The child of Abhishek and Aishwarya shall be the first Bachchan of the generation after my brother and me …” soon followed by another tweet with clarification saying
“Clarifying : Amitabh and Ajitabh , first generation Bachchan … then Abhishek and Bhim and now Abhisheks and Aishwarya’s …”
Priyanka Chopra too showed her excitement as she tweeted “Congrats. Awesome news! Lets make way for the legacy to go forward”.
Aishwarya Rai is currently in Madhur Bhandarkar’s project called Heroine which is supposed to be finished with 45 days. So anytime in November, the film shooting shall be completed. Will Aishwarya’s pregnancy effect the shoot. Well, apparently, there is no reason why it will effect. According to a source “Madhur is not worried about Heroine’s promotions or how Ash’s pregnancy will affect the film’s success. We shouldn’t forget that Ash is a popular and successful actress and her getting married didn’t affect her fan following. She enjoys a loyal fan following and it will not be affected by her becoming a mom.” He also said “Madhur is looking to release the film around November this year and the promotional activities will be planned to suit Ash. For sure, the soon-to-be mom will be pampered by not just her family but her directors and co-stars too on the sets.”
After “Heroine”, Aishwarya Rai will not be seen on Silver Screen for a long long time…
Anyways, Congrats and Blessings to Aishwarya Rai and the whole Bachchan Pariwaar, from all her fans at AishwaryaWeb.com and it’s readers.
