Yes, there is a Padma Shrimati, no jokes.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has recently been conferred with this National Award “Padma Shri”. Now everyone knows what a prankster hubby Abhishek Bachchan is. Though they were miles apart when the news was announced, Abhi did send his wife his warmest wishes on her achievement. From Jhansi, where he is shooting for Mani Ratnam’s Ravana, Abhishek sent a bouquet of flowers to his lovely wife. The flowers were addressed to Padma Shrimati.
Isn’t that so cute and funny at the same time?
This is not the first time that Abhishek has nicknamed his wife. Two years ago, when Ash was placed at Position 9 in the “List of 50 Most Beautiful Women in the world”, she was given a special nickname by her husband. ”Number Nine”!
Interestingly, Ash is the 4th member of the Bachchan family to receive the Award. Grandpa Harivansh Rai Bachchan was the first member of the clan to be honored with a Padam Shri. “Pa” Amitabh Bachchan has received this Award twice for his contributions to our cinematic culture. Even “Mom” Jaya Bachchan has been a “Padam Shri”.
In this family of “Padam Shri’s”, son Abhishek Bachchan is the only one who’s not joined the club yet. We hope and wish that Abhi will also keep up the family tradition.
Cheers to that!
