“Speaking of Abhishek Bachchan,

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek had a fairy tale wedding on April 20, 2007. Since then, the couple have been immensely loved by their fans, and whenever they step out, all the spotlight is on them.

When Abhishek and Aishwarya sat down to chat with TV show host Oprah Winfrey, they talked about several things like how Abhishek proposed to Aishwarya, how they spend their time together and what is the rule of the house established by Jaya Bachchan. Midway through the conversation, Oprah asked the Dasvi actor, “How does it feel to be married to the most beautiful woman in the world?” Without taking a moment, he replied, “Oh, that’s easy on the eyes.” “
Moving on, Abhishek’s Dasvi co-actor Nimrat Kaur discussed how people pay too much attention to other people’s weight issues. The actress gained 15 pounds for her role in Dasvi and shared her before and after photos, while writing a powerful note.

Ayushmann recalled an incident that happened almost 11 or 12 years ago. He explained that once, some auditions were held in a separate room from the waiting room which housed many aspiring actors. “I remember everyone was seated and you just auditioned in front of everyone. I was shocked, I was like ‘what is this?’ They were like ‘read your lines’. I told them ‘everyone will see, they will take my ideas’. When he asked if he could give his audition last, he was asked to leave.
“More news on Ayushmann’s Vicky Donor. Ayushmann co-actor Annu Kapoor says he was disappointed that Vicky Donor’s producers focused only on the lead actor.

Maybe they don’t like ugly faces like Annu Kapoor”,
