If  you are part of  the entertainment business, you know stories nowadays  are  made and made up, on  the  basis of pictures randomly snapped at  airports and outside restaurants. So  a picture of Aishwarya holding on to her daughter’s hand  at the  airport while her husband Abhishek walked a little distance away meant the two had a fight and -  to carry the story forward - their marriage is not doing well. Tch tch. The story even prompted an angry rebuttal from Abhishek. 

Oh well. Whose marriage in showbiz (and even out of it) is  doing well these days? But let me  tell you, the  rumours of a rift between  Abhishek and Aishwarya  are someone’s idea of  bringing the couple down to the heartbreak club.Since so many marriages are  not doing well, why should theirs be not doing badly?That’s the twisted rationale. Go figure.

But the truth is, this couple is  very happy together. Far from warring, the two are on the same page on most of the  important decisions in their collective lives including Aaradhya’s upbringing and Abhishek’s career. It  was Aishwarya who  suggested that Abhishek hire Salman Khan’s former business manager Reshma Shetty. Ever since, Abhishek’s career has shown a remarkable upswing. The actor is  said to have given  the  best performance of his career in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyan where  Abhishek plays a Sardarji for  the  first time.

I can tell you this. 2018-19 may well turn out to be Abhishek’s turnaround move-ahead time. He will finally find his bearings as an actor. As far as  his parenting  skills  are concerned, Abhishek is not going to  post pictures of his time out with his daughter in the park, or cuddling with the adorable one for Instagram. Let me tell  you he is one  of the best fathers  in  showbiz. He doesn’t have to  prove it to anyone. In fact, in my experience, the more the showbiz parents try to prove how hands-on they are with their kids, the less involved they actually are with the  process of parenting.

So does that mean Abhishek and Aishwarya  don’t have  arguments? Of course they do!. It would be abnormal if they didn’t.  But the fact is, their marriage is rock-solid and based on complete trust.  I can tell you this with complete certainty:  Abhishek is  the  only major star-husband who has never had an extra-marital affair. I can  also tell you who  is behind the rumours of their rift. But then that’s another story.
