Aaradhya is my first priority: Aishwarya Rai

  • Print


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's iconic status never comes in the way of her duties as a mother, a wife, daughter and daughter-in-law - in that order. She says she has tried to keep the atmosphere around daughter Aaradhya "as normal as possible".
Just how she manages to fulfil all her duties and still finds time to be one of India's most recognised celebrities, is a mystery. Not to the lady herself, though.
"It's something I've grown up with. From the time I was 18, I've been juggling many responsibilities. My day begins at 5.30 a.m. It has been that way from the time I remember. Of course, after Aaradhya my priorities have changed completely. She comes first, everything else is secondary," Aishwarya said.
"Do you know Aaradhya saw her mother's film for the first time? I mean, she had of course seen me on television and doing songs. But Fanney Khan is my first film where she actually sat through the whole film," she added.
And what did Aaradhya think of her performance?
"I think her smiling eyes said it all. She had actually seen me shoot a part of my song in Fanney Khan. So when she heard there was a screening, she expressed a wish to see the film with all her friends and their parents. So all her friends came with their parents and had a good time."
"I was happy to let Fanney Khan be the first film Aaradhya watches. It has a positive message for viewers of all ages and there's nothing in it that children cannot watch. In any case, Aaradhya is constantly singing and dancing at home, sometimes to my songs, sometimes to her father's and her grandfather's songs. It's a normal household. We're trying to keep the atmosphere around Aaradhya as normal as possible."
