Guess Which Is The Most Successful Marriage In Bollywood?

 There are  two kinds  of  showbiz celebrity couples: the ones who pretend to be  faithful  to one another,  and  the  ones who are actually faithful. Admittedly the  numbers  for  the  former  category far exceed  the latter.

  I can tell you about  these seemingly perfect marriages where the  husbands  have been cheating  till the cows come home.

 I don’t know whether  I should share  this. But  very recently this  high-profile  power-couple  , both superstars in their own right, faced rough weather in their seemingly  perfect marriage when the  Hyper Male was  seen giving too much attention to  a female co-star.  What did his superstar-patni do? She  showered attention on a hunky male superstar slurping on him as though he were a slice of yummy melting  chocolate  cake. Husband hastily abandoned his flirty ways.

     There are  high-profile marriages out there which could crumble under the weight of all  the pretension that they have put up with.

 Not Abhishek and Aishwarya.  This is  a couple  for keeps.And those who tell you otherwise know nothing  about  these two people. Both had their share of relationships before marriage.  But when they  decided to come together as Man and Wife, they   promised  each other  to  make their marriage work  , no matter what  it takes.

 When  they worked together for  the  first time in Rohan Sippy’s  Kuch Na Kaho there were no  romantic vibes between  them. They actually fell in   love much later when they co-starred  in J P Dutta’s Umrao Jaan. That’s where  ‘It’  happened and everyone could see it.

I remember my dear friend  JP  smiling  like an indulgent father. “I think my bachcha has fallen in  love.”

How do you know? I asked.

“They don’t come for their  shots when called. We  all have to wait patiently  for them to make an appearance and then we all  have to pretend as  if everything is normal. We are better actors than those two,” said JP.

 It’s been  13  years since  Abhishek and Aishwarya have been together and  there is not a whiff of  a scandal.Every time I  meet them in Mumbai  I insist  on  meeting them  together  . It takes some  co-ordination . But they do it for me.Because as a  couple  and as individuals Abhishek and Aishwarya are gracious souls, always  attentive and  considerate.

What’s more , they complement one  another  perfectly. To take an example, Aishwarya, as everyone  who knows her will tell you,  is terrible with communication. If  you get a reply from her, you must  treasure  it for  eternity.  Very rarely does she respond. Abhishek, on the  other hand, has  learnt  the art  of communication from his parents who are really good, make that  exceptional, at  it . On  my birthdays , it is generally Abhishek who calls and  then passes  on  the phone to  his wife.

 Not that she  lacks  in warmth.  It’s just that her communication skills need  working on.  As does any marriage. The couple has  its share  of  problems, like  every  other couple. But they  know how to work their way around   the bumpy patches in their marriage.

I once asked Abhishek the secret of his  successful marriage.

“Every  night without fail before you sleep say ‘Sorry’ three times  to your wife.”

Looks it is working.
