MUMBAI: In September at an event when reporters called her Ash, hubby Abhishek Bachchan was not pleased. He told the reporters to call his wife Aishwarya, not Ash.
But this Thursday when Aishwarya accompanied her mother-in-law Jaya Bhaduri to a party by Subhash Ghai at an Andheri pub, some photographers called out: `Aishwarya, Aishwarya, please pose for us.’
That was about 10.30 PM.
But Aishwarya’s protective mother-in-law got angry. Turning around, Jaya Bhaduri shouted at the photographers, “Kya Aishwarya Aishwarya bula rahe ho, tumhare class mein padhti thi kya? (Why are you calling her Aishwarya? Was she your classmate?)’’
Poor photographers. They had no answer to Jaya’s outburst.
If they call her Ash, her husband Abhishek gets angry. If they call her Aishwarya, her mother-in-law Jaya Bhaduri gets angry.
So how should the media address the Bachchan bahu?
Perhaps they will be safe if they called her Mrs Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
