Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Celebrate 17 Years of Matrimony With a Sweet Family Selfie

On a day gleaming with love and nostalgia, Bollywood’s cherished couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan commemorated their 17th wedding anniversary. The illustrious day was marked with a heartfelt showcase of their enduring bond as they uploaded a charming family selfie featuring their daughter Aaradhya on their Instagram profiles. Amidst the radiance of their smiles, the family portrait radiated pure joy and togetherness, symbolizing the years of shared love and companionship.

The private marriage ceremony of Aishwarya and Abhishek, two of India’s most iconic figures of cinema, took place on April 20, 2007, in the serene enclave of Prateeksha—the famed bungalow belonging to the patriarch of the family, Amitabh Bachchan, located in the heart of Mumbai’s film aristocracy. Their love story continued to flourish, welcoming their daughter Aaradhya into the world on November 16, 2011. Since then, the Bachchans have epitomized a familial synergy, often admired and celebrated by their fans across the globe.

Their union has not only been a journey of personal dedication but also professional collaboration, as Aishwarya and Abhishek have graced the silver screen together in films such as the critically acclaimed ‘Guru’ and the high-octane action thriller ‘Dhoom 2’.

The recent social media post came as a gentle rebuttal to the swirling rumors that suggested a rift had surfaced between the two stars. Speculation had been rife that Aishwarya had moved out of her in-law’s residence, following certain alleged familial strains that surfaced during the premiere of Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson, Agastya Nanda’s debut streaming film ‘The Archies’. Such gossip was further ignited by reports of Amitabh Bachchan transferring the ownership of the bungalow Prateeksha, estimated to be worth Rs 50 crore, to his daughter Shweta.

In the professional realm, Abhishek Bachchan’s artistic journey continues to evolve with his recent role in ‘Ghoomer.’ In this film, he turns to coaching as a cricket mentor guiding a determined young cricketer portrayed by Saiyami Kher, who overcomes the loss of her right arm to pursue the sport. Esteemed actors Shabana Azmi and Angad Bedi also contribute their talents to the movie’s ensemble cast.

Replete with emotional depth and thematic resonance, Abhishek’s upcoming project ‘Be Happy’, which will be released on Amazon Prime Video, promises to be an anecdote of empowerment and joy. Abhishek will explore the role of a devoted single father striving to support his exceptionally talented daughter’s aspirations to grace the stage of the nation’s premier dance reality show. Helmed by acclaimed choreographer and director Remo D’Souza, the film features a stellar support cast that includes Nora Fatehi, Nasser, Inayat Verma, and comedic veteran Johny Lever.

An addition to his future endeavors includes an untitled project with director Shoojit Sircar. This yet-to-be-named film orbits around the theme of second chances, bringing forth the tale of Arjun—a man settled in the USA, chasing the proverbial American Dream—and the rekindling of his treasured relationship with his daughter. The narrative weaves an emotionally charged exploration of life’s unpredictable turns and the unforeseen reconciliations that can sometimes follow. The project promises to be a nuanced celebration of the ordinary, everyday moments that compose the symphony of life, with a supporting cast that includes Johny Lever, Ahilya Bamroo, and Jayant Kriplani.

On the other end of the cinematic spectrum, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has recently triumphed with her performance in director Mani Ratnam’s epic period drama ‘Ponniyin Selvan – 2’, which was met with resounding critical acclaim and audience adoration.

As the golden couple looks ahead, the industry and their avid followers stand eager to witness the continued unfolding of their personal and professional legacies. With 17 years of marriage now etched into their shared history, the Bachchans have firmly rooted themselves as an embodiment of love, resilience, and artistic commitment.
