New Delhi, Feb 16 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai travelled to Bhopal to celebrate the 80th birthday of her husband Abhishek Bachchan’s maternal grandmother. According to a source close to Aishwarya, this was a commitment the couple had made to Abhishek’s ‘nani’ (maternal grandmother) a while ago. And despite the high fever and sore throat that she has been suffering from since a few days, Aishwarya made sure she was there to fulfil her promise.
‘Aishwarya is much much better, but still not 100 percent (fine). But she’s my nani’s favourite so she made the trip too. Should be back to fighting fit… in a day or two,’ Abhishek posted on social networking site Twitter.
The actor says his grandmother’s expression on seeing both of them was ‘priceless’.
‘Made a surprise trip to Bhopal last night (Monday). Was my nani’s 80th birthday! Her expression was priceless. All her grandchildren flew in from all over. My sister, our cousins all meeting after so long. Now everyone partaking in an old Indian habit, all sitting together… Eating, drinking and catching up!
‘My nani, of course, is back to being the matriarch! Making sure all her children are well fed and taken care of and doing what grandmoms do… feeding,’ he added.
