Try to Keep Everything As Normal As I Can Infront Of My Daughter, says Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya shows over protectiveness for daughter Aaradhya, calls everything else Secondary

Aishwarya Rai Bachchans iconic status never comes in the way of her duties as a mother, a wife, daughter and daughter-in-law — in that order. She says she has tried to keep the atmosphere around daughter Aaradhya “as normal as possible”.

Just how she manages to fulfil all her and still finds time to be one of India’s most recognised celebrities, is a mystery. Not to the lady herself, though.

“It’s something I’ve grown up with. From the time I was 18, I’ve been juggling with many responsibilities. My day begins at 5.30 a.m. It has been that way from the time I remember. Of course, after Aaradhya my priorities have changed completely. She comes first, everything else is secondary,” Aishwarya said.

“Do you know Aaradhya saw her mother’s film for the first time? I mean, she had of course seen me on television and doing songs. But ‘Fanney Khan’ is my first film where she actually sat through the whole film,” she added.

And what did Aaradhya think of her performance?

“I think her smiling eyes said it all. She had actually seen me shoot a part of my song in ‘Fanney Khan’. So when she heard there was a screening, she expressed a wish to see the film with all her friends and their parents. So all her friends came with their parents and had a good time.

“I was happy to let ‘Fanney Khan’ be the first film Aaradhya watches. It has a positive message for viewers of all ages and there’s nothing in it that children cannot watch. In any case, Aaradhya is constantly singing and dancing at home, sometimes to my songs, sometimes to her father’s and her grandfather’s songs. It’s a normal household. We’re trying to keep the atmosphere around Aaradhya as normal as possible.”

Aishwarya is not one of those star moms whose child is seen more with the nanny than the mother.

Laughing at the observation, Aishwarya said: “Aaradhya does have a nanny. In fact, I am told I should have two of them because the one that I have, tends to take off on long holidays. But it doesn’t really matter. I like doing everything for Aaradhya myself, though with my kind of schedules it is not always possible to do so.”

But Aishwarya’s mother helps out.

The actress and former beauty queen said she grew up in an atmosphere where her mother was always hands-on.

“So it never even occurred to me that it could be otherwise.”

Managing her sprawling career and her domestic responsibilities is not easy.

“Every home maker who is a working woman is a hero. It requires a lot of juggling with time. And a supportive husband, which I luckily have.”

Aishwarya is looking at doing handpicked roles, like the one in Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” and now “Fanney Khan”.

“I always knew my role in ‘Fanney Khan’ was small. When I was promoting the film, I never gave the impression that I was there throughout the film. Rakeysh Mehra and his wife P.S. Bharathi (who has co-produced ‘Fanney Khan’) narrated the idea to me and I loved it.”

It’s almost as though the role of the pop diva was written for Aishwarya.

“That’s how the audience have perceived my presence. Once I was on board, I became totally involved with the development of the character, her relationship with the character played by Rajkummar Rao, her clothes, the song… I loved the concept. And Anil Kapoor as the father of the daughter brought his personal emotions into the part. He was so sincere.”

Mehra has said Aishwarya contributed a lot to her character.

She says it was a “small but pivotal role”.

“I don’t look at my roles in terms of the footage. To me, the role should define my personality and the character I am playing. But now Rakeysh needs to do a full-fledged film with me.” (IANS)
