A couple of days ago, Abhishek Bachchan met Hollywood legend Al Pacino in London. Surprisingly, even though wife Aishwarya also happened to be in the city at the same time, she did not accompany her husband to meet the actor. Now we know why.
The actor chose to skip the rendezvous because no one was around to look after her daughter, Aaradhya. “Her mother (Vrinda) was leaving for India on the same day. And since there was no one else to look after Aaradhya, Aishwarya decided to back out of the meeting,” says an insider close to her.
The actor also wanted to spend some quality time with her mother. “Over the past few weeks, Aishwarya has been constantly travelling across the globe. So, she wanted to spend as much time as possible with her mom. But the biggest reason was that she didn’t want to leave Aaradhya,” adds the insider.
Abhishek met Pacino at An Evening With Al Pacino, an event in London on June 2. He and Aishwarya were in the city to attend a charity concert, Chime for Change. Despite repeated attempts, Aishwarya couldn’t be reached for a comment.
