Whether it’s her marriage, weight gain or pregnancy, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is always in the news. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that bets being placed and reams written about her pregnancy, the kind of delivery she will opt for, the hospital chosen and time of her delivery.
So much so, that it was recently reported that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be going in for a C-section delivery on 11.11.11 and that a room has been booked at Seven Hills hospital at Marol, Andheri (E). Reports also suggested that Ash regularly visits the hospital at 7.30 am for check-ups and in-house gynaecologist Dr Vinita Salvi comes in early to consult the Bachchan
However, the hospital denies it all. Dr Pai, head of radiology and vice president, Seven Hills Hospital, says, “The information and details are a figment of someone’s imagination. The reports of 7.30 am appointments and a C-section for the 11th have no resemblance to the truth and such stories only put the medical fraternity in bad light. Sonography is a personal procedure and is not performed in open wards. Twisted details mislead the people of this country to believe and follow what a writer may see as good masala for newsprint.”
Aishwarya’s spokesperson agrees, “The report ridiculously insinuates that the family would actually turn nature’s course for such blind and sensationalised beliefs. There is a limit to time and again making regressive remarks like marrying her off to a tree or actually planning or delivering her baby just for sensational journalism.”
