Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, the iconic Bollywood couple, have found themselves under increased scrutiny following recent joint attendance at the Dhirubhai Ambani International School Annual Day event in Mumbai, according to Hindustan Times. Amid widespread reports hinting at strains in their relationship, the couple’s joint appearance at this public event has generated considerable curiosity among fans and media outlets.
Numerous images and videos shared across various social media platforms captured the couple’s arrival, creating a mixed atmosphere. Aishwarya, accompanied by her mother Brindya Rai, presented an elegant figure in a striking black and golden suit paired with heels and a matching bag. Meanwhile, Abhishek, joined by his father Amitabh Bachchan and nephew Agastya Nanda, sported a navy blue shirt, matching pants, and sneakers.
Observers noted various interactions among the family members, including Aishwarya exchanging words with Amitabh and affectionately engaging with her nephew Agastya. Notably, Abhishek was seen conversing with Aishwarya, displaying an affectionate gesture by placing his arm around her as they entered the school premises.
Speculation about Separation
The couple, married since April 20, 2007, and parents to daughter Aaradhya, has been at the center of recent speculation regarding their relationship. Reports suggest that during a joint appearance on the runway at the Paris Fashion Week, Abhishek’s niece Navya Naveli Nanda and Aishwarya deliberately avoided taking photographs together. Additionally, Shweta, Abhishek’s sister, omitted mentioning Aishwarya in her Instagram post from the event, focusing solely on her daughter.
Abhishek’s public appearances without his wedding ring and reports of Amitabh unfollowing Aishwarya on social media have further fueled gossip. A cryptic tweet from Amitabh added to the mystery. Instances such as Aishwarya and Abhishek skipping joint photo opportunities and the absence of the Bachchan family at Aishwarya’s 50th birthday have intensified speculation.
Recent reports also suggest Aishwarya’s alleged relocation from the Bachchan family residence and a reported cessation of communication between Aishwarya and her mother-in-law, Jaya.
While the couple’s joint appearance suggests solidarity, cryptic signals and intriguing incidents continue to fuel speculation, leaving fans and media eagerly anticipating further developments in the unfolding saga of Bollywood’s beloved pair.
