Yup, Beti B is growing up fast! In a recent interview with a radio station in London, Jaya Bachchan revealed what her granddaughter looks like! She said, “Aaradhya looks like a bit of Aishwarya and a bit of Abhishek. She’s a tall girl.” (And yes, there’s more!)
Commenting on Ash’s maternal skills Jaya added, “Aishwarya is a hands on mom. She is sometimes overcautious. Baby Aaradhya is not intimidated by faces, she is beautiful! I call her “Strawberry” because when she was born she reminded me of a strawberry. She is always smiling! Now she’s trying to crawl and it’s very special to us. Sometimes I tease Aishwarya and I say well, Aaradhya is a very lucky girl because can you imagine having a nurse like Miss World?!”
She went on to reveal, “Aishwarya! I would also like her to start going out but she is absolutely, totally hands on and doesn’t depend on anybody, which I think is great.”
Interesting! I think we’re all guilty of assuming that iconic Bollywood families all adhere to some sort of old-school family management (cue Big B’s Parampara speech) where the mother-in-law calls all the shots. But I can imagine that Aish’s “house-arrest” is probably just a matter of personal choice. I also think “Strawberry” is quite a cute pet name and may come in hand for small talk when she runs into Apple (Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s little girl) on the red carpet! *lol*
Oh and the “Miss World nurse” commet was killer, I love it! Can you picture Junior B singing *Could you be, the most beautiful nurse in the world…* Jaya ji you’re quite the star, I’ll never forget your speech and watching you dance up a storm at the Moët & Chandon’s Celebration for Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla at China House. #Awesome :)
Take a look at the Bachchan lineage and guess which “B” Beti B is going to Be (most like looks-wise) post a comment below!
PS. My spy tells me that all the close friends and family who have seen the little girl say her eyes look like Ash’s while the complexion is very Abhishek. Oddly enough I got the exact opposite impression from a fan run-in a few weeks ago, but then again, I hear babies initially change a lot!
*sigh* I just remember the blog I did for kiddy day when Junior B tweeted me, THAT was a good day :) xoxo
