Recalling his love story with Aishwarya Rai and how they met in Switzerland for the very first time, Abhishek Bachchan said, “I first met her when I was a production boy. There was a film my father was making called Mrityudata, and I had gone for the location recce to Switzerland because the company felt that because I had grown up in Switzerland in boarding school that I would be able to take them to nice locations.”
He continued, “I had been there for a couple of days, all alone. And that’s when a childhood friend of mine, Bobby Deol, was shooting for his first film — Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. And he got to know I was there and said ‘Hey, why don’t you come over for dinner?’ And that’s the first time when they were shooting when I met Aishwarya.”
Abhishek said that the second movie he shot for, called Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, starred Aishwarya and that they worked together several times and had developed a good friendship before deciding to get married. Asked if he ‘crushed on’ her during this time, Abhishek said, “Who doesn’t crush on her? I mean, come on, come on.”
