Whether she’s travelling for work or for personal reasons, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan makes sure her two-year-old daughter, Aaradhya, is always with her.
But because her actor-husband Abhishek Bachchan’s schedule keeps him occupied, the three of them don’t always find the time to spend together.
Therefore, when the opportunity presented itself in the form of an ad shoot (that features both Aishwarya and Abhishek), the couple decided to make the most of it and take their daughter along.
“They wanted to utilise the time they get in-between shots. And when they were busy shooting, Aaradhya was having a ball playing with everyone on the set,” says an insider.
However, when the protective parents realised that some members of the media were present on a nearby set within Filmistan Studios in Goregaon, they immediately asked for the area to be shielded. In no time, large black curtains were drawn to cover the open area where Aaradhya was playing.
“It wasn’t that Aishwarya and Abhishek didn’t want anyone to click photographs. Aaradhya has been seen in public quite regularly. They just didn’t want her to get disturbed with all the chaos that would have ensued, had the area not been covered,” says a source.
Although the guard at the studio seemed certain that Aaradhya was present at the venue, Abhishek’s spokesperson insisted that she was never with them at the time of the shoot. Instead, we were told that she was at home.
