Actors Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan celebrated their 15th marriage anniversary on April 20. They took to Instagram and posted the same throwback picture from their wedding. In the close-up picture, Abhishek is putting a ring on Aishwarya’s finger. While Aishwarya posted the picture with several emojis, including sparkles, hearts, and a rainbow, Abhishek shared it without any caption.
Fans flooded the posts with comments and heart emojis. Actress Nimrat Kaur commented on Abhishek’s post, “Happpppppiesssst 15 years to @aishwaryaraibachchan_arb and you @bachchan!!! Here’s to the best of it all yet to come!!!” Saiyami Kher, Sonali Bendre, and Ekta Kapoor left red heart emojis. Abhishek and Aishwarya got hitched on April 20, 2007 at their home Prateeksha, and welcomed their daughter Aaradhya on November 16, 2011.
On Koffee With Karan in 2010, Abhishek uncovered why the wedding was not a grander affair. “People are forgetting a major reason why our family wanted to keep it intimate. I had an ailing grandmother in hospital and my father said, ‘You know, we do not feel good about going out there and having a good celebration’. Did I want to invite? Did her family want to invite the whole world? Yes. Our parents, altogether, sent out a card seeking the blessings of everybody.”
Aishwarya added, “It was the happiest moment in our lives, and there was a genuine reason [why we could not invite everyone].”
