Mumbai, May 14 (IANS) It’s a busy time for Abhishek Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Rai; still, the two decided to pay a surprise visit to Jaya Bachchan’s mother in Bhopal, just before they flew to France to attend the 62nd Cannes Film Festival.
“It was a flash visit last week. Abhishek had never visited his naani (grandmother) with Aishwarya. They wanted to surprise her. They had a day off. So they just took off for the day. There was no direct flight. So they had to take a hopping flight. But it was finally worth it because the visit made their grandmother in Bhopal so happy,” a source close to the couple told IANS.
After the Bhopal visit, the two took off for Cannes to attend the festival that opened Wednesday.
“They’ve both gone on a personal and very special invitation from the Cannes Festival organisers. Aishwarya attends the festival opening or closing every year depending on the availability of time. Abhishek just decided to accompany his wife on the special invitation from the festival organisers,” said the source.
They return immediately so that Aishwarya can resume shooting with Akshay Kumar for Vipul Shah’s “Instant Replay”, while Abhishek will join his father, Amitabh Bachchan, for another schedule of R. Balakrishnan’s “Paa”.
