It's been five years since Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan said 'I do' and had a grand marriage that was the talk of the country. On April 20, 2012, the golden couple celebrated the very special occasion with a fabulous party for close friends. Unlike earlier years, when they would head for romantic escapades abroad, this time the duo decided to spend their day with Beti B and family and friends.
According to a source, the party kicked off at Jalsa at the Bachchans’ residence. Shortly afterward, the party moved to a five-star hotel where a table for 24 people was reserved. The atmosphere at the hotel was lively with food, drinks and a gigantic cake. The source added that very close friends had been invited to be a part of the party including Apoorva Lakhia, Goldie Behl, Sonali Bendre, Shrishti Arya, Sikander Kher and Ash's friends from south Mumbai.
It is believed that around 2.30 am the gang headed back to Jalsa and continued partying until the wee hours of the morning. And while Abhi and Ash partied, the senior Bachchan and his wife Jaya stayed at home to take care of their granddaughter.
The Big B, on his part, gave an idea of what was in store when he tweeted last week, "It’s past midnight ... time to say Happy Anniversary to Abhishek and Aishwarya,” and “Abhishek and Aishwarya celebrate their wedding anniversary tomorrow April 20th, and it seems like yesterday when we were in the midst of all the rituals and celebrations for it…”
