34: Aishwarya Rai’s Marriage – Dhai Akshar Prem Ke

Well, this is where it all began. We mean Ash and Abhishek’s love story. Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke was the first of seven films in which now married couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai starred together. Back then while shooting for the film, Ash was still dating Salman and hence Abhishek Bachchan was just a good friend. This movie is considered to be a remake of 1995 Hollywood film A Walk in the Clouds.


As far as the plot goes, it’s the usual drill, boy meets girl, mistaken identity, infatuation, separation and finally reunited. Aishwarya rai’s forced marriage happens in the climax but she looks every bit of a perfect Bollywood bride. As expected, Abhishek Bachchan rescues her out of the drill and they live happily ever after.
