The photo of Amitabh Bachchan’s grand daughter and daughter of Abhisekh and Aishwarya is one of the most sought after photo these days. But, it seems the fans won’t be getting the glimpse of the little one… at least, not now.


According to a rumor, two major media houses had approached Bachchan family with an offer to pay Rs 5 crore in for exclusive pictures of the newborn baby of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Aishwarya gave birth to the baby on November 16, 2011.

Bachchan family kept the mother and the daughter out of media since the birth. People were searching social media and internet for the photo that was not available. So, a doctored photo made it’s round claiming to being the new born baby’s photo. Amitabh later told that he was upset by the circulation of the fake photo.

Recently Amitabh tweeted, ”To those that clamour for the baby’s picture, I have said it before, it will not be happening. Do understand, it’s personal.”

First, let me post the most sought after photo: Aishwarya holding the little girl, the new sensation in Bollywood!

UPDATE: The photos of Aishwarya carrying a baby turned out to be fake. With thanks to ‘sgb’ for pointing out the original photo, in comment – here is the original photo and that the Aishwarya’s photo was a cheap Photoshop trick. (We are sorry and apologize for not doing proper check before publishing the fake photo.)


The actress and model Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her husband Abhishek Bachchan – had a baby girl this week. Every news outlet in India is filled with the story as if they are the royal couple and have just given birth to a princess.

"Royal Princess" Aishwarya

The prince/princess acronym is not my invention, BBC has published a profile of the rise of family dynasties in Bollywood film industry.

  • The Bachchans – Amitabh and wife Jaya Bhaduri, Abhishek, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
  • The Kapoors – Prithviraj, Raj, Shammi, Rishi, Randhir, Neetu Singh, Rajiv, Karishma, Kareena, Ranbir
  • The Deols – Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Sunny, Bobby, Esha, Abhay

Brave natural birth

Another aspect of the birth of the baby in Bachchan family is natural delivery of the child. Times of India reports that natural child birth by the 38-year-old former Miss World is considered to be a brave attempt – setting an example that old age mothers don’t need to opt for Caesarean section. In Mumbai every fourth woman chooses C-section as a mode of delivery to escape labor pain and complications. For older mothers, more than half of the mothers (60%) older than 35 don’t even consider natural birth.
