Abhi-Ash Wedding Anniversary: When Abhishek Bachchan used a studio prop to propose to Aishwarya Rai

Bollywood’s ‘it’ couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary today, April 20. The two got married in 2007 and are parents to daughter Aaradhya.

So how did the sparks fly between the two, who headlined for their broken relationships in the past? In 2018, Abhishek spoke at the India Today Conclave East that they became friends during their initial films Dhai Akshar Prem Ke and Kuch Na Kaho. However, things took a serious turn when they collaborated once again for the Muzaffar Ali film, Umraao Jaan.

Ash, in a candid interview with a magazine, spoke how Abhishek popped the question while they were filming for Guru. The former Miss World revealed that on a windy night in New York, her now husband didn’t have a diamond rock to propose, but a studio prop from their movie set, which was used for the same act. He even went on to keep the ring for sentimental reasons.

Aishwarya said that the gesture was “spontaneous and meaningful”. She added that God has been kind to us. We can certainly afford those standard rocks. But do we need them.”

Speaking more on their relationship over the years the diva asserted, "We argue and fight over such trivial things, nothing major. I can't carry a sulk for too long. After any argument, it's generally me who breaks the ice by asking Abhishek for some advice or the other. Besides, technology has made things so much easier, what are emotions for.”

On work front, Abhishek is all set to feature in Anurag Basu’s Ludo, Harshad Mehta's The Big Bull and Shah Rukh Khan's production venture Bob Biswas - the role made famous by Saswata Chatterjee in the 2012 movie Kahaani. Meanwhile Aishwarya will be seen in Mani Ratnam's period film Ponniyin Selvan.
