Abhishek Bachchan is apparently amused and annoyed with rumours of his moving out of his family home with wife Aishwarya Rai and daughter Aaradhya.
A close friend of the family says, "We aren’t sure where this rumour started. Or whether someone has decided to club rumours of Hrithik Roshan leaving his parents’ home with some more masala on Abhishek doing the same. There is no truth to these rumours. Abhishek is very much at home in Jalsa, where he belongs.”
The family friend further adds that there is no lack of space and privacy for Abhishek and Aishwarya in the Bachchan parivar.
"The couple has its own separate floor in the bungalow. They go and come home as they wish. Jayaji is the least interfering mother-in-law. Aaradhya moves around the entire home. There’s no restriction of any kind in the house.”
A friend of Abhishek adds: "Abhishek can buy property all over Mumbai. That doesn’t mean he is moving out of Jalsa. He will never leave his parents’ home. When he was engaged to Karisma Kapoor many years ago, he broke it only because Karisma and her mother demanded that the couple live away from the parents’ home after marriage. Abhishek’s home address is non-negotiable.”
