When Abhishek proposed to Aishwarya she immediately agreed.
Abhishek revealed about what was going on in his mind when he proposed to Aishwarya, “I was filming in New York for a movie. And, I used to stand on the balcony of my hotel room and wish that, ‘One day, wouldn’t it be nice if I was together with her, married. Years later, we were there for the premiere of Guru. After the premiere, we were back in the hotel. So, I took her to the very same balcony, and I asked her to marry me.”
Call it the call of destiny or the prediction of love , they were meant to be together now.
Abhishek’s proposal was spontaneous , and he was not prepared with a ring. He had given her a studio prop to propose immediately and she had happily obliged.
This proposal is unique and the not magical but real definitions of expressing love.
Does one need only a diamond ring to propose to his lady?
Definitely Not, and their lovely relationship is evidence to their non-attachment of materialistic things to express their love for each other.

There were quite a few controversies and unwanted publicity before their marriage like Aishwarya’s manglik dosh or the sizzling chemistry between Aishwarya and Abhishek which got famous for all the wrong reasons.
There was also an incident of a publicity stunt by a girl named Jhanvi Kapoor, who slashed her wrist to prove that Abhishek had betrayed her with a marriage promise.
Despite all these unwarranted incidents, they held on to each other and decided to get married.

He was her support and the perfect husband who would pamper and treat her like his queen.She was the lucky lady who felt in cloud nine every day , all thanks to her fame, support form family and her charming husband.
They welcomed their little bundle of joy,Aradhya , on November 16,2011 who looked like the photo copy of Aishwarya in her childhood.
Eleven years post marriage and still going strong inspite of much media intervention regarding her relationship turning sour with her in-laws .But, they have held on to each other like rock -solid logs which never depart.
Aishwarya praised her better-half with beautiful words to describe their bond, “Abhishek is my source of inspiration. He is always so supportive. Whenever I am confused and don’t know what to do, I look at him and he solves the duality in me like magic. He is the real ‘Padma Shri’ and I’m his ‘Padma Shrimati’.”
They have always shared their responsibility of taking care of their child and been with each other whenever their work required them to travel abroad.
The lucky man revealed in an interview, “Aishwarya is my anchor. She is my buddy, my closest friend. I can discuss anything with her. Our relationship is not based on her being Aishwarya Rai or me coming from an illustrious family. It is just about two people falling in love which has organically grown. We started during Guru. It was meant to be.”
Now, that is what we call mutual admiration , trust and respect which is required for any marriage to keep going .We wish ‘Abhi-Ash’ many more years of togetherness and love , giving us more couple with that wonderful display of trust.
