Abhishek had proposed the actress during 'Guru' premiere
To recall, Aishwarya and Abhishek developed a good bond while shooting for Kajra re in Bunty Aur Babli.
However, it was during the shooting of Guru (2007) that love found its way.
During Guru's premiere in Toronto, Bachchan Jr. popped the question, to which Aishwarya said yes.
Recalling those moments, she had stated that their roka was a sudden and surprising event for her.
"I didn't even know there's something called a roka ceremony"
"We are South Indians, so I didn't know there's something called a roka ceremony. And suddenly there is this call from their house to ours; 'we're coming'," Aishwarya once revealed. It was a nerve-wracking moment for Aishwarya, especially because her father was out of town.
Bachchans celebrated the engagement with a grand party
Soon after the roka ceremony, the Bachchans celebrated Abhishek and Aishwarya's engagement.
It was another surprise for the former Miss World, who got to know about the celebration after reaching Jalsa.
"The whole town has arrived, visited us that night. There is this full-on party going on in Jalsa. So it was quite a whirlwind," Aishwarya said as she recalled her engagement party.
Aishwarya's last was 'Fanney Khan'; to feature in Ratnam's next
On the work front, Aishwarya was last seen in Atul Manjrekar's musical comedy Fanney Khan, also starring Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. However, the film failed to impress both critics and audiences.
Earlier, Aishwarya and Abhishek walked out of Anurag Kashyap's Gulab Jamun, over "creative differences."
Meanwhile, reports suggest that Aishwarya will soon be seen in her "guru" Mani Ratnam's next, Ponniyin Selvan.
