(2007) Ash Bids Farewell To Parents
It was an emotional moment for Aishwarya Rai as she bid farewell to her parents and relatives to embark on her new life as a member of one of India’s iconic families.
Clad in a cream-coloured lehenga, Aishwarya cried as she hugged mother Brinda Rai during the bidaai (traditional farewell) from her residence La Mer in suburban Bandra.
Aishwarya and Abhishekh Bachchan had tied the nuptial knot on Friday.
“Obviously every daughter gets emotional when she bids goodbye to the house in which she is brought up in but there is also sense of happiness that she is going to a man whom she loved,” said the actress’ business manager Hari Singh.
Aishwarya came in a traditional doli till the gate of the building from where the star couple moved on into a decorated car to escape the prying eyes of the media.
Earlier, the entire Bachchan clan including Amitabh, wife Jaya, daughter Shweta, brother Ajitabh and close friends Anil Ambani and Amar Singh arrived at the Rais’ residence for a lavish lunch, which included continental, Mughalai and traditional Mangalorian dishes.
