Abhishek Bachchan today lashed out at a local news paper for publishing a report which said that his wife, Aishwarya, had been trying to conceive but was unable to owing to Stomach Tuberculosis. The report said the star couple had to postpone their plans for a child till she completed her treatment for the same.
The newspaper report said, "According to a close family friend, though outwardly the family may have taken the when-it-happens-it-will-happen stand, but within, there’s a very ardent desire to have an heir for the family as soon as possible".
Using social networking site Twitter, Abhishek Bachchan slammed the newspaper and tweeted "The article is disgusting and appalling! As a husband and a man I am shocked that one can talk so irresponsibly about a woman."
The actor also said that he will not take stuff like this especially against the ladies of his family. He also tweets, I have immense respect for the media. They are the opinion makers of a nation, our conscience. THEY MUST BE RESPONSIBLE!!!"
Junior B felt that "apart from the fact that they have written so irresponsibly about a woman let alone my wife. My issue is when will all this kind of journalism end?"
"Aishwarya is fine now and back to work shooting for Action Replay," he wrote on the Twitter.
Meanwhile, Big B, too, had some bitter remarks for the paper on his blog site.
On her part, Aishwarya Rai wrote a letter of denial to the newspaper, which was 'partially printed'. She wrote that she was very shocked, appalled and extremely upset with the contents and she totally denied the report saying it was totally fabricated and false.
