Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai can't stop gushing about her husband Abhishek Bachchan and says they share a special bond and she identifies a lot with him.
"I admire him (Abhishek) for his approach to work. He understands cinema so well that he is not afraid of taking risks. He stands by his family, friends all the time and because of this I identify a lot with him," Aishwarya told IANS on Saturday.
"I know him for a very long time now. Together we have grown from actors to colleagues to friends and now we share a very special bond. It is definitely a nice feeling," she added.
Aishwarya, the brand ambassador of Swiss watch brand Longines, was here to open its exclusive boutique in Ambience Mall, Gurgaon.
Dressed in a one-shoulder lemon dress, the actress was in a chirpy mood.
She will soon be seen in Shankar's Robot.
"Shankar had approached me previously to work with him, but it never materialised. Finally, everything landed in place and here we are together after ten years," Aishwarya said.
"It was great working with Rajnikanth, who is a brilliant actor. The only tough thing about the movie was studying Tamil again in order to pronounce the words properly," she added.
Other then this, the actress will soon start shooting for Mani Ratnam's Ravana with Abhishek.
"I don't want to reveal much about it but in another 10 days, we will start shooting for the movie. I am looking forward to working again with Mani," she added.
After being a part of the 'Unforgettable' World Tour, the actress feels that the tour gave her an opportunity to mingle with all her family members.
"I have done so many world tours, but this one was special because it was my first tour after marriage. We were there for work but when the family is together, work becomes fun," she said.
Beginning with Mumbai, the "Unforgettable" tour will soon be staged in India, though the dates and venues have not been finalised yet.
