Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan's baby is due in November 2011, and the the buzz surrounding the new Baby B is just getting crazier and crazier. Apparently, punters in India are involved in betting on the sex of the baby, and the amount involved involves crores of rupees.
Reportedly, the bet is 70 paise per rupee on a baby girl and 80 paise per rupee on a baby boy. Allegedly, the amount put up in the betting pool has reached the figures and proportions that India-Pakistan cricket matches generally do.
It seems that Aishwarya's doctor in Mumbai has been flooded with questions about the baby, particularly its gender. Mumbai-based Dr Kuldeep Prasad is believed to be very upset by the intrusion as well as reports of the betting on the baby's gender.
Aishwarya and Abhishek have not reacted to the reports as yet.
