Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the most glamorous couple in the Indian film industry, celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary on Saturday 20 April. The Bollywood stars met back in 2007, when the former Miss World was still a fledgling actress and Abhishek Bachchan was still under the shadow of his father, the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.

The two have come a long way since, but judging by the photographs and the comments, their love for each other appears as strong as ever, a happy exception in a world of messy celebrity divorces.

When Bachchan was awarded Best Actor (in a Comic Role) at The Times of India Film Awards in Vancouver, Canada, it was his wife he thanked in his acceptance speech. The 37-year-old Mumbai-born star said: "I really owe this to Aishwarya and the love and support she has given me. She makes me the person that I am."

Love at First Sight

"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 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.

Aaradhya Bachchan

In November 2011, the happy couple received an addition: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gave birth to her first child. The young girl, Aaradhya Bachchan, is already one of the most famous faces in Bollywood.
