Welcome to Parenthood Abhi-Ash

31 May

While Aishwarya Rai has been a hands on mother to daughter Aaradhya, dad Abhishek Bachchan hasn’t been able to do much. The excited father is happy that his little daughter is now six months old and he is hoping to help Ash with baby chores.

“I can now carry her all the time, play with her, attempt to change her diapers,” said Abhishek to a daily. “Ash didn`t want me to handle our baby when she was younger, because it may have been awkward,” Abhi added.

Apparently, Abhishek was asked to leave the bedroom quite a few times due to the baby’s routine.

“Aaradhya wakes up in the night for her feed and a nappy change. Ash, who`s completely clued in, is up in a jiffy. However, I must confess, it took time for me to get used to the new routine. When the baby cried, I woke up too, but couldn`t go back to sleep immediately. So Ash suggested that I sleep in another room till such time that Aaradhya was slightly older,” added the actor.

But wasn’t he hurt to be shut out of his own bedroom? “Ash suggested that I should sleep separately whenever I have a shoot the next day. I can hardly go on the sets yawning,” he reasoned.

The actor also admitted that he is tad bit jealous of the mother daughter duo and the bond they share. “Ash`s day starts and ends with the baby. Since she insists on doing everything for Aaradhya, including giving her a maalish (massage), bathing her and attending to her round-the-clock, I`m now waiting in queue for Ash`s attention.”

No Smoking for Hrithik

24 May

The Greek God of Bollywood: Hrithik Roshan was caught into a trap of smoking addiction due to stress. Here’s is the story behind what made him quit his addiction for good.

While doing ‘Guzaarish’ Hrithik had got friendly with two patients. John Julius and Ashutosh. John was the bright one but Ashutosh thought the world was a beautiful place but his job here was done. One day when Hrithik looked unwell, Ashutosh questioned him about his health. The weakness was prominent on HR’s face. It was because he had started to smoke for the movie. Ashutosh then made a deal with Hrithik that if he agrees to quit smoking, Ashutosh will start his physiotherapy.

When they met again on a later date, Ashutosh asked Hrithik whether he had quit cigarettes. Unfortunately the stress was so immense that Duggu couldn’t work on getting rid of his addiction. But he promised to leave smoking once and for all on the day ‘Guzaarish’ released. Later being involved in promotions and dubbing of the movie, Hrithik never got a chance to meet Ashutosh. Furthermore, when Hrithik got swamped by how badly the movie was doing on the Box Office, he got more stressed.  Although he had promised to quit, Hrithik kept puffing away packs of cigarettes. His stress and insecurities just din’t let him.

When finally he decided to visit Ashutosh, Hrithik got to know that he had passed away. While on the way to Ashutosh’s funeral, Hrithik triggered a severe reaction of an anti-biotic drug combined with smoking, which was so dangerous that the doctors called it a narrow escape. If Hrithik was late for two more minutes, he would have been dead.

Ever since that day, Hrithik decided not to touch the pack of puffs and thanks Ashutosh everyday for saving his life from his monstrous habit. It’s almost been a year since Duggu smoked last and believes that this is his second life gifted to him by Ashutosh’s well wishes for him.
