Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan spoke to the media soon after Aaradhya’s birth. Here’s what he said.
actor Amitabh Bachchan shares a special bond with his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and granddaughter Aaradhya. Recently, Aishwarya wished Amitabh on his 79th birthday with a picture of him and Aaradhya.
Aaradhya was born in 2011, four years after the marriage of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. Soon after his birth, Amitabh and Abhishek stepped out of their Jalsa home and spoke to the media about the new member of the family.
Amitabh told the media that Aaradhya looks like Aishwarya to him.
“I feel like Aishwarya is there. But as you go, Bachchan’s appearance changes every day. I still believe that Aishwarya’s face is there. Some people in the house think that a little is a lot. (I think she looks like Aishwarya but kids faces keep changing as they grow up. But I still think she looks like Aishwarya. Some people in the house think that she is like Jaya and Abhishek looks),” he said. The family had not yet decided on the name of the child.
Amitabh had also said, “I am a baker now. Mera Kaun Banega Crorepati Khatam Hoga is there, and I have no film yet. So I am a baker, now I am homeless (I am useless now. Kaun Banega Crorepati ends). It’s done and I don’t have any film to shoot. So I’m useless and I’ll be at home).” To this Abhishek jumps in and says that Amitabh will now take care of his granddaughter.
Amitabh also spoke about the night Aishwarya gave birth to Aaradhya and how she refused epidurals or painkillers during labor. “We went there on the night of 14th. The doctors told us that the baby can come anytime now. She gave birth to a child on the morning of 16th. It was a normal delivery, though nowadays people opt for C-section and other things. But Aishwarya wanted a normal delivery, she had to struggle, but I appreciate that she had a long time, about 2-3 hours, intense labor. But she said she wanted a normal delivery. She did not use any epidural or painkiller,” he said.
The actor is currently hosting the 13th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Aishwarya is currently working with Mani Ratnam in her comeback film Ponniyin Selvan.
