Bollywood's biggest wedding stays small

The wedding is quite small and private by Indian standards - but it doesn't get bigger than this for Bollywood.

Established superstar Aiswarya Rai, a former Miss World, will tie the knot with fellow actor and rising star Abhishek Bachchan on Friday at the latter's residence in the western Mumbai (Bombay) suburb of Juhu.

Abhishek is the son of Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan and popular 1970s actress Jaya.

Prying eyes

The preparations are in full swing at the Bachchan's bungalow, Pratiksha ('Wait' in Hindi), where the main function will be held.

A temporary wooden structure is being built around the house to ensure that no prying eyes or cameras ruin the private moment for the family.

In addition, up to 400 security guards will be on duty to keep strangers out, says Capt Swarn Salaria, the head of Trig Force Guard Limited.

"It is going to be a very high profile marriage, various dignitaries like very big personalities from the film as well as political world will be there, family friends will also be participating in the marriage, for which we have made all the arrangements to ensure that the flow of people coming in and going out is not disturbed," Capt Salaria told the BBC.

The Bachchans have also reportedly requested neighbours with views over their bungalow not to allow any cameras or press into their homes.


Aiswarya Rai's outfits, including the main wedding dress, are being designed by Indian fashion designer Neeta Lulla.

The bride's jewellery has been bought especially from Calcutta and special silk saris from the northern town of Varanasi have also been ordered.

Four-page invitations, embossed with two As, the couple's initials, have been signed by them as well as the entire Bachchan family.

Businessman Anil Ambani, his wife Tina, politician Amar Singh and Uttar Pradesh state chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav have been invited.

The couple got engaged in January

There are reports that the leader of Maharashtra state's powerful regional Shiv Sena party, Bal Thackeray, has also been invited and will attend.

Other invitees include close friends from the film industry, such as director Ramesh Sippy and son Rohan, director Yash Chopra and family, director Karan Johar, actors Ajay Devgan and wife Kajol, actor Sanjay Dutt and directors Goldie Behl and Apoorva Lakhia.

From Aiswarya Rai's side, her parents and brother along with his wife are expected to be present.

According to a friend of the family, the Bachchans want the wedding to be low-profile because the groom's grandmother is very unwell.

However, Hindu traditions are being observed and the festivities will begin on Wednesday with the sangeet (music evening) at the Bachchan residence.

Thursday will be the henna night - when henna is applied to the bride's hands. That will reportedly be held at Ms Rai's residence in Bandra, with the henna being brought in from Rajasthan.

Mrs Bachchan recently told an interviewer that she had always loved Aiswarya Rai. When asked if she though Ms Rai would make the perfect Mrs Abhishek Bachchan, she replied, "I think so".

Abhishek Bachchan and Aiswarya Rai got engaged in January.

The two have appeared in a number of films together, but only one, Guru, has been a box office hit.

Hrithik Roshan

After three super-duper hits, Rakesh Roshan and son Hrithik Roshan have parted ways, albeit temporarily- while Hrithik Roshan has already created dhoom with the biker sequel and is now busy with Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Jodha Akbar, senior Roshan is now branching off on a film without beta. Are the two tired of each other? “No, I am not tired of working with Hrithik Roshan,” laughs Rakesh Roshan.

Bachchan home a fortress ahead of Abhishek Bachchan - Aishwarya Rai Wedding

his son Abhishek bachchan marriage to Aishwarya Rai, superstar Amitabh Bachchan's home here resembles a fortress, every visitor being given a thorough once-over and curious passers-by promptly shooed away by security guards. One could be forgiven for thinking Prateeksha, the Bachchans'' sprawling bungalow in suburban Juhu, is the venue of some top secret meeting. But all the security is aimed at keeping away unwanted persons from the nuptials of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan on April 20. As the Bachchan family prepares to welcome Aishwarya into its fold, a key aspect of the preparations for the marriage is the secrecy shrouding it.

Details of everything from the guest list to the ''mehendi'' ceremony, the bride's dress and even the honeymoon have been kept top secret. Aishwarya Rai marriage and the Bachchans have consistently refused to talk about the wedding and all guests have been sworn to secrecy. Though the marriage of the former Miss World and the scion of the Bachchan family has evoked immense curiosity all around, those actually involved in the arrangements have been very tight-lipped.

Aishwarya Rai Wedding - Amitabh Bachchan's home a fortress ahead of Abhishek Bachchan

Ahead of his son Abhishek Bachchan marriage to the gorgeous and hot Aishwarya Rai Wedding, Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan 's home in Mumbai resembles a fortress.

Every single person going in and out is given a thorough once-over and curious passersby are promptly given the boot by ferocious looking security guards.

You could be forgiven for thinking that "Prateeksha", the Bachchans' sprawling bungalow in suburban Juhu, is the venue of some top-secret meeting. Rather it is where the wedding of the century, the much-awaited meeting of minds between Aiswarya rai and Abhishek bachchan will take place on April 20.

As the Bachchan family prepares to welcome Aishwarya rai into its fold on Friday, one thing evident about the big event is the amount of secrecy that has shrouded it.

Details of everything from the guest list to the "mehendi" ceremony, the bride's dress and even the honeymoon have all been kept top secret.

Both Aishwarya Rai Wedding and the Abhishek Bachchan Wedding have consistently refused to talk about the wedding or the details and all guests have been sworn to secrecy.

Even while the marriage of the former Miss World and the scion of the Bachchan family evokes immense curiosity all around, those actually involved in the wedding have been very tight-lipped.

Bachchan himself is said to be supervising each tiny detail of his son's abhishek bachchan wedding. Guests include industrialist Anil Ambani and wife Tina, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, who will take time off from the Uttar Pradesh elections, and other close family friends.

The three-day wedding celebrations will also see some of the Bachchans' closest friends from the film industry gracing the occasion.

Karan Johar , Goldie Behl and wife Sonali Bendre , Apoorva Lakhia , and Anupam Kher, wife Kiron Kher and son Sikander will all be part of the celebrations.

"The Bachchans' are famed for guarding their privacy. The media has been at their heels for any information they can get but even guests and those involved in organising the wedding have been asked to reveal no details," sources said.

Bachchan even went to the extent of requesting neighbours not to allow media into their houses on the day of wedding.

The couple got engaged on January 14 after a great deal of media speculation on their relationship.

Guest list for Abhishek Bachchan and Aiswarya Rai Wedding

With the electronic media and the paparazzi going ballistic with "details" about the Abhishek Bachchan and Aiswarya Rai marriage, no one is sure about the facts any more.

The April 20 Abhishek Bachchan and Aiswarya Rai Wedding is not going to be a lavish affair, say those in the know. Only the immediate relatives of the Bachchans - brother Ajitabh and his family, sister Shweta and her in-laws, which include Kareen Kapoor - are being invited.

Abhishek bachchan's close friends like Sikandar Kher, Goldie Behl and Rohan Sippy are sure to be there. Karan Johar and mom Hiroo Johar as well as and JP Dutta, whom Abhishek looks on as a father figure, are expected to attend.

Yash Chopra Chopra, his wife Pam and sons Aditya and Uday are also likely to be there at the ceremony.

The lady of the house, Jaya Bachchan, is busy supervising every detail. In fact, Big B and the bridegroom are keeping completely out of the picture, and that includes the invitees' list.

Jaya Bachchan, being firm of mind and resolute in her purposes, has kept the fanfare to the barest minimum. The guest list would be in accordance with the size and capacity of the Bachchans' residence - Prateeksha - and of course, the imperativeness of the potential invitees' presence on the premises.

All the invitees are keeping a low profile to avoid divulging details about the Aiswarya Rai wedding. But some of the atrocious claims cooked up by entertainment channels have the Bachchans hugely amused. Bachchan and Aiswarya Rai Marriage

According to media reports, neighbours have been asked to keep their gates shut to media personnel and the aviation ministry requested to bar planes over their residence during the wedding.

Amitabh Bachchan has told a friend, "My son abhishek bachchan wedding is a very private, solemn and precious moment for me and my family. Surely, we're entitled to our privacy if and when we need it."

Provoked Tells An Important Story - Aiswarya Rai Marriage News

Aiswarya Rai Marriage

When is enough really enough?

In love, never. In abuse, immediately.

Domestic violence evokes a sense of unrestrained anger within. One's instant reaction is, 'How dare he?' or 'Why doesn't she leave him?'

It is too subjective to understand what makes a woman stay in a bad marriage, or with a bad husband. Issues like incompatibility, for some even infidelity, are negotiable. But how does one adjust to getting beaten up by a man who has publicly promised to love and respect you in an elaborate wedding ceremony?

Even so, scores of women tolerate harassment at the hands of beastly husbands in order to protect the institution's so-called honour. Some are just uncomfortable exposing the truth, while others are too scared to even try. There are women who actually die getting beaten up.

Aiswarya rai's new movie Provoked : A True Story compels you to think about this ugly issue prevalent in both modern and traditional societies.

Adapted from the autobiography Circle of Light (by Rahila Gupta and Kiranjit Ahluwalia), it is primarily the story of Kiranjit's trauma. Though the film doesn't give a detailed account of the psyche or conditioning of its victim and offender, it gives you some insight of a woman's incredible tale of abuse and acquittal. aiswarya rai marriage pictures

Interview: Kiranjit, the woman behind Provoked

The opening shot (with solid backing from A R Rahman's soulful background score and Madhu Ambat's expressive photography) is exceptionally dramatic. Held by an unknown figure, a candle burns and spreads its dim light across the darkness of the living room. As it moves, the flames' reflection falls on the wall displacing framed memories from happier times. Oblivious to what it's about to do, the candle ascends in the direction of its victim. It surreptitiously reaches its inebriated victim and is let loose to make its fatal move.

The unknown figure is now revealed. It's a nervously shaking Kiranjit (played by Aiswarya Rai). The man going up in flames is her husband, Deepak (Naveen Andrews, playing the bad guy so effectively you want to strangle him). aiswarya rai marriage photos

A series of recurring flashbacks enlighten us about what really happened.

Originally from Punjab, Kiranjit comes to England after marrying Deepak. Docile and submissive, Kiranjit meekly puts up with the increasing atrocities of her alcoholic other half. The vile man beats, cheats, mistreats and abuses his wife physically, sexually and verbally.

In an interview, the real Ahluwalia stated her husband was often nice but suffered from a 'split personality'. In the film, this trait is never communicated. Deepak comes across as a you-know-what of the first order from start to finish.

In the film, the year is 1989. And Kiranjit is put behind bars for suspected murder. The trial fails to establish a prolonged background of domestic violence and the jury declares her guilty. Sentenced to life imprisonment, Kiranjit gears up for life in the cell, where she finds a protective sympathetic in her feisty and affluent inmate, Veronica Scott (a delightful, effortlessly endearing Miranda Richardson). Booked for stabbing her husband, Veronica is shown to have remarkable influence in and outside prison. aiswarya rai marriage wallpapers

Meanwhile, non-profit organisation Southall Black Sisters, headed by Radha (Nandita Das in a spiffy, vibrant turn) takes up Kiranjit's cause, vowing to bring her justice.

Together these women prove to be a driving force in her life. While she brushes up her English speaking skills, Radha and her team create an awareness of Kiranjit's case by posting banners and flyers asking for support. Veronica uses her contacts to help Kiranjit file an appeal. In 1992, the judiciary system in what came to be known as the breakthrough 'Regina vs Ahluvalia' trial acquits Kiranjit.

Provoked is an important story which definitely needs to be told. What is disheartening is the way it is. Sure, the treatment is realistic, production values are good, and the acting is mostly commendable -- but the screenplay (Paul Austin, Rahila Gupta) is shockingly superficial.

The mostly English-part Punjabi drama has such a hard-hitting theme, but director Jag Mundhra is so preoccupied in chronicling the events, he tackles the emotional aspect rather hurriedly. Like with the case of extracting performances.

Every time the actress is completely into her anguished character's skin, Mundhra; instead, of letting the camera linger for just a split second longer, jumps off to the next shot, breaking your connection with aiswarya rai nude photo practiced insensitivity.

Aiswarya Rai, on her part, is sincerity personified. No make-up, pretty clothes or even a smile adorn her naturally gorgeous disposition. But those eyes play their part. With changing circumstances her big blue-green brimming eyes look shocked, grieved, frightened, confused and relieved. Her effort to speak in fluent Punjabi is truly impressive. Then again, there are times her body language is not in sync with the suffering of her character, something Mani Ratnam successfully got out of the actress in Guru. It is a sensitive portrayal, even if not an assertive one.

In terms of violence, the sequences are not too many or too graphic. Though there is an extended scene featuring a naked Naveen Andrews and his smouldered butt, the beating scenes are fortunately brief, nevertheless effective.

With a running time of 1 hour 45 minutes, Provoked is, as one psychologist in the film puts it, 'self-justificatory.' Even though it doesn't glorify Kiranjit's actions, it doesn't stop from justifying it either. If only the film would stress more on what Ahluwalia has been saying in almost every interview -- 'Never do what I did in life. But at the same time never suffer in a bad marriage. If you are unhappy in a marriage, get out of it.' That's what really makes her story so heartfelt and meaningful.

In the end, you come out of the theatre feeling more about the issue rather than the person.

Bollywood beauty and 'EastEnders' hard man team up - Aiswarya Rai

Aiswarya Rai

Aiswarya rai Photo and Steve appear together in new movie Provoked, which is based on a true story. The film also stars British actors Naveen Andrews and Robbie ColtranePhoto

Aiswarya rai's a former Miss World and Bollywood star, he's one of British TV's most famous 'hard men', making Aiswarya Rai, ravishing in a scarlet sari, and a sharp-suited Steve McFadden an unusual pairing on the red carpet in London this week as they promoted their powerful new movie Provoked: A True Story.

The 48-year-old actor, who is famous for playing garage boss Phil Mitchell in EastEnders, appears as an unscrupulous policeman in his second silver screen outing - his first being 2000's Kevin And Perry Go Large. Aiswarya, meanwhile, portrays Kiranjit Ahluwalia, the British Punjabi who killed her husband after suffering a decade of abuse, and was subsequently released from jail following a high-profile campaign.

The Indian actress Aiswarya rai wallpaper says she accepted the role because it "touched a chord, and as a woman I believed in the issue".

Despite her upcoming wedding, reported to be taking place on April 20, the Bride And Prejudice beauty is maintaining a busy schedule. She's set to tie the knot with her actor fiancé Abhishek Bachchan at his family's Mumbai residence but, unlike Elizabeth Hurley's lavish Indian nuptials, the pair have decided to keep theirs low-key.

Just 15 guests, including family and close friends, will apparently witness the ceremony for two of India's most popular stars. Their latest movie collaboration, Dhoom 2, was the highest grossing Bollywood movie last year.
