Aishwarya's Expecting, Amitabh Bachchan to be Grandpa!
JUNE 22, 2011 - Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is elated that he is going to be grandfather to Aishwarya Rai's (pictured) first child.
"I am going to become a grandfather. Aishwarya expecting. So happy and thrilled!!!" Bachchan tweeted, confirming the subject of weeks of speculation.
Rai, 37, a former Miss World, has been married to actor Amitabh's son, Abhishek Bachchan, for more than four years and the couple had been fending off pregnancy rumours in the past year. Yesterday, Rai's media manager confirmed the pregnancy but did not give details. Rai starred in Bride And Prejudice, The Mistress Of Spices (2005) and Pink Panther 2.
Rai has no film under production but has signed up to film-maker Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine, which was announced at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
