Indian actor Abhishek Bachchan has squashed reports that he and his wife Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are heading for divorce.

The 38-year-old actor took to his Twitter account to clear the rumours.

Abhishek Bachchan and the 40-year-old former Miss World, who tied the knot in 2007, have a daughter named Aaradhya, born in November 2011.

"The first time I met Aishwarya was in August 1997. I was on a recce for my father's film Mrityudata in Switzerland and she was shooting her first film, Aur Pyar Ho. I remember one evening Bobby [Deol, her co-star] invited me to his hotel for dinner and Aishwarya was there. That was the first time I actually met her," Abhishek previously told an Indian magazine.

"If you ask her, she will tell you the same thing - that the minute we came together, we both knew that this was something for keeps. So, there wasn't just this 'one' defining moment, it always felt perfect," the actor explained.

In November, Aishwarya told NDTV that filmmaker Farah Khan had approached her for Happy New Year which she refused since she would be paired with Shah Rukh Khan.

"Yes, I was approached for the film but I wasn't working opposite Abhishek in it, and it really wouldn't work out that way, so things didn't fall into place but soon, will be back soon," Aishwarya said.

However, Aishwarya who is enjoying every moment of motherhood, will be soon seen in filmmaker Sanjay Gupta's new movie Jazbaa. The Pride and Prejudice actress will be the female lead in Gupta's film, he confirmed the news on Twitter.
