Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Shares How She Panicked When the Bachchans Arrived at Her House For Her Roka

"I didn’t even know there’s something called a ‘roka’ ceremony."

Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are one of the power couples in Bollywood, who redefined marital bliss for us. After witnessing their 11 years of togetherness, it can be safely said that this couple is #RelationshipGoals all the way. 


During an interview, Aishwarya recollected a hilarious incident that happened after Abhishek had proposed to her. 


Thanks to Priyanka Chopra, in 2018 we all got to know what a Roka is. But back in 2006, Aishwarya was in for a surprise when Abhishek informed her that his family was on their way. She said, "He proposed, which was amazing! And it happened like really suddenly. I didn’t even know there’s something called a ‘roka’ ceremony. We are South Indians, so, I don’t know what a ‘roka’ is and suddenly there is this call from their house to ours; ‘we are coming’."

The actor added, "Abhishek was like ‘we are all coming and I can’t stop dad. We are on our way. We are coming to your place’. I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’ So, this ‘roka’ is happening with a call to my father, who is out of town. Mum is here, we are here. They’ve all arrived home, they are emotional and all. I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it’s happening.’ Then it’s like, ‘Come on, let’s go home’. I’m like, ‘Mom, okay… is this…is this an engagement? Like, what just happened?’."
