The news of Aishwarya Rai’s pregnancy has been received with joy by everyone except a few quarters who see a hidden motive behind the timing of the announcement.
Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have been towncrying their delight at the good news, but a few reports about an underhand motive to steal the attention away from the IIFA has clearly not pleased them.
According to rumours, Amitabh Bachchan had known about Aishwarya’s pregnancy for a month, but kept it secret until two days before IIFA kickstarts in Toronto so that the annual event which has now boycotted Amitabh Bachchan for the second consecutive year doesn’t get much publicity.
We hear that the Bachchans have chosen not to react to such negative reports, but the joy of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan has somewhat been sullied by such unfounded claims.
The good thing is that the well-wishers have showered the Bachchans with congratulatory messages. Both Amitabh and Abhishek have been busy thanking the people ever since the news of Ash’s pregnancy got out. They’ll be busy doing that for at least a few more days.
