Some very tempting offers, including Prahlad Kakkad’s Happy Anniversary, have come Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's way. But audiences are unlikely to see her, and husband ABhishek Bachchan, together in the near future.
There’s a good reason for this.
The couple’s bundle of joy, daughter Aaradhya.
Mom Aishwarya’s top priority is her little girl. Everything else comes later.
Though Aishwarya is looking at scripts and would be doing a comeback film soon, it will not star Abhishek.
Says a source close to the family, “Aishwarya is a fully hands-on mother. She doesn’t let anyone take care of Aaradhya as long as she is around. If Aishwarya has a commitment to attend to, Abhishek looks after the baby. It would therefore be foolhardy for both Aishwarya and Abhishek to be shooting for the same film. Aishwarya would like to do a film where her schedules don’t match with Abhishek’s so that one parent can be with Aaradhya when she is shooting.”
