One of the very few celebrity couples I like are Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, Bollywood superstars which recently got married (their wedding created an INSANE media frenzy, because not only are Aish and Abhi superstars, but Abhi is the only son of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, both huge stars themselves. Amitabh is probably the best known BW actor ever).



I mainly like them because they are super pretty, and good actors (in right movies) and have good chemistry together on screen, and oh yeah, being around him makes Aish seem much less than an ice goddess, but instead just a beautiful but warm woman.

Plus, if I didn't like them before, this would do it:

It’s rare to have a Q&A session go on so long that the moderator has to leave. But that’s what happened Tuesday night at India Splendor’s final screening, Guru..."Guru”director Mani Ratnam and stars Aishwarya Rai (looking breathtakingly beautiful in green) and Abhishek Bachchan fielded questions ranging from the message of the movie and its reference to Bachchan’s character taking dowry to what it was like growing up in an “elite” family. And when Lall tried to end the session around 11:30 p.m., the stars said they were willing to continue. At one point Bachchan even told the audience of 300 at the Billy Wilder Theater not to bother with the mics but just shout out their questions.

“You may have thought we were elite, but we were really a middle-class family,” Bachchan said. Whatever his actor parents, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri did outside the house, at home they were just Dad and Mom. “And every day we all had dinner together.”

A question about what they liked about each other as an acting couple brought forth a long response from Bachchan to which Rai quipped, “Honey, I’ve already said yes.”


From here.

(from Umrao Jaan. The movie itself was deadly dull, but the stills are awesome).

If you want to check out the couple, separately or together, I recommend (for together):

Guru:, a quasi-arthous fictional biopic of an ambitious businessman's climb to the top (Aishwarya plays his wife) and Kuch Na Kaho, a hilariously cooky and adorable romcom where Abhi plays a man visiting India who falls for *gasp* single mother Aishwarya. If you want to see their best films, I recommend Yuva for Abhishek (it's a movie about corruption and srudent activism, and he gives the movie's best performance as the slowly-descending-into-hell small time thug) or Bunty aur Babli, a hilarious romance/comedy/crime-caper (Aishwarya has a cameo). For Aishwarya, it's undoubtedly Devdas (operatically tragic love story) and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, about a traditional girl having to decide between two men (one of which is played by *scandal* her ex-real-life-bf Salman Khan).
