ACTOR Abhishek Bachchan said his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is unfazed by criticism of her in the media and praised her parenting skills.
Commenting about Aishwarya being a “supermom” for their daughter, Aaradhya, Abhiskek said in an interview, “When she became a mother, her career took a backseat. Today, she does everything for Aaradhya. She is a supermom.
“Soon after Aaradhya was born, the media went at Aishwarya about her weight gain. Nasty things were written, which really upset me. ‘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.”
Abhishek said despite her busy work schedule, Aishwarya does not complain.
“To date people refer to her as the most beautiful woman in the world, and I know she is immensely grateful for the love. She values her fans and enjoys the adulation as well as the trappings of her career. Even with the hectic travel schedules and erratic work hours, I’ve never heard her complain about front or back of the plane, Maruti or Mercedes. Her focus isn’t on the trivial. It’s these things that leave me charmed,” said Abhishek.
As the actress turned 44 on November 1, Aishwarya, along with her mom Vrinda Rai and daughter Aaradhya, visited the Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha.
