VANCOUVER: It’s been seven years to their marriage now and Abhishek Bachchan says wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the woman behind his success.
Saturday, at the maiden edition of the Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA), the Jr. Bachchan bagged the best actor comic award for his funny role in ‘Bol Bachchan’.
Said Abhishek, “‘Bol Bachchan’ is very, very special film to me and I stand here in front of you humbly receiving the award. I would like to thank my family for firstly having me because things wouldn’t have worked without that. I really owe this to Aishwarya and the love and support she has given me. She makes me the person that I am.”
The 37 year old who also performed at the event, said it was a long due gig for his fans in the city.
He said: “Almost five years ago me and my family were scheduled to perform in Vancouver for the Unforgettable tour (in 2008). Unfortunately, the show in Vancouver got cancelled and I promised I will make it up to you and I hope that was a bit of a payback. And I promise you next time I won’t only bring Aishwarya, I will bring dad ( Amitabh Bachchan) as well.”
“But Shiamak, you will have to choreograph it,” said Abhishek whose act was choreographed by Indian Contemporary Dance choreographer Shiamak Davar.
