It will be 12 years in April since Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan tied the knot. The two are one of the most loved Bollywood couples and have a dedicated fan following on social media. Abhishek and Aishwarya’s marriage was one of the most memorable weddings in Bollywood. But do you know their story before their wedding? We know it now! In an episode of Colour Infinity’s Famously Filmfare, the actress recounted her roka ceremony which happened really suddenly.
He proposed, which was amazing! And it happened like really suddenly. I didn’t even know there’s something called a ‘roka’ ceremony. We are South Indians, so, I don’t know what a ‘roka’ is and suddenly there is this call from their house to ours; ‘we are coming’.
She further revealed that her father was not in town when then call happened.
Abhishek was like ‘we are all coming and I can’t stop dad. We are on our way. We are coming to your place’. I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’ So, this ‘roka’ is happening with a call to my father, who is out of town. Mum is here, we are here. They’ve all arrived home, they are emotional and all. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it’s happening.’ Then it’s like, ‘come on, let’s go home’. I’m like, ‘Mom, okay… is this…is this an engagement? Like, what just happened?’.
What a story this is!
