As the family feels ecstatic on the arrival of a cute little baby girl, here's how the Bachchan clan shut the blabbering mouths and kept their heads high, amid speculation around the baby.
It all started in 2010 when, apparently, a magazine published an article saying that Aishwarya Rai was having infertility issues and could not bear a child due to stomach Tuberculosis, also that she was undergoing treatment for it.
This article offended Amitabh Bachchan, resulting in the Bachchan family boycotting Filmfare Awards completely.
Baby Boy In Bangkok?
Model and actress Bhairavi Goswami had accused Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan of gender selection via IVF.
Here's what she tweeted : Nauseating 2 read superstars giving interviews about wanting a girl baby when she has gone 2 Bangkok to an IVF clinic which specializes in boy babies. Height of hypocrisy. They know damn well its a boy, after all she has to produce a male heir at any cost - Typical UP mentality, no wonder that state has such high female foeticide. facelift is bettter dan going2 fertility clinic in Bangkok dat specializes in boy babys.Then say 'I only want healthy baby' bah.' (sic)
All we have to say is - It must be hard now, eating your own words Ms.Goswamy... no?
The rare date of Novemeber 11, 2011 drew a lot of attention towards Ash's pregnancy as most of the people were speculating that she might go for a C-section and bring their special child to this world on that special day.
The date too passed quietly and Ash gave a natural birth to the baby on 16.11.11.
And, as we know the news was broken to the world through Twitter by the brand new PAA - IT'S A GIRL!!!!!! :-))))) and the Grand Paa - T 561 - I AM DADA to the cutest baby girl !!
But amongst the various congratulatory Tweets happening in the Industry, for the Bachchans. Here's one noteworthy Tweet by Shobhaa De. We thought it'll be interesting to share it here, as we smell a bit of sarcasm there.
Here's what she says:
Little Miss World has arrived! Jai ho! Big B over the moon about Baby B. Someone sign up Ash as Ambassador for Girl Child, please? Worthy cause.
