Abhishek Bachchan has spoken of his dismay at stories that involved wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s weight gain after she gave birth to Aaradhya Bachchan.
In an interview cited in Mid-Day, Abhishek said, “When she became a mother her career took a backseat. Today, she does everything for Aaradhya. She is supermom. Soon after Aaradhya was born, the media went at her about her weight gain. Nasty things were written, which really upset me. If that upset her, she said nothing. “Water off a duck’s back,” said Aishwarya when she saw me perturbed. Anyone who knows her would know that she has never spent a day in the gym. The only time was when we were shooting ‘Dhoom 2’ (2006), and Uday Chopra, Hrithik Roshan and I dragged her.”
Aishwarya turned 44 yesterday. She will commence shooting for ‘Fanney Khan’ later this month. It stars Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao.
