‘Aaradhya is aware of our stardom’
Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (above) says that her daughter Aaradhya, has had a conventional upbringing till now and she would like it to remain that way.
“She has had a normal upbringing. It’s not like we sit her down and show her our films. I can’t say she is blissfully unaware. She is aware of what we do. She obviously sees our posters all over the city,” says Aishwarya, who just returned from the Cannes Film Festival.
The actor was accompanied by her five-year-old daughter at the event. “Because she is travelling with me, meeting new people, seeing our world, I don’t have to sit her down and tell her what her mother does. She sees it, she is growing up with. She has now developed an ease with media,” she adds.
Aishwarya says that since Aaradhya is born into a family of movie stars, she is aware of little things in the business, such as getting clicked by shutterbugs. “She sees photographers outside our home, airports, every where. People come for selfie requests so sometimes she photo bombs them and sometimes she will back out,” reveals Aishwarya.
The actor, sharing a sweet story about Aaradhya’s visit at Cannes, says, “There were some photos where she is waving, I asked her, ‘What are you doing’ and she said ‘I was telling them no photos, bas theek hai.’ When I was busy, she also posed for pictures.”
