My world changed the day Aaradhya was born, says Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan may have made her comeback with Sanjay Gupta's Jazbaa but she's always been around. In commercials, at public events, you would always manage a glimpse of the superstar and devoted mother. The three years that she took off to look after her daughter has not dimmed her dazzle. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is back stronger and yes, more beautiful than ever before. In an exclusive interview with Firstpost, Aishwarya speaks her heart out on her favourite subjects, her daughter Aaradhya, husband Abhishek and of course movies.

You have been a uni-focused mother for three years now. Was there never a restlessness in you to return to acting while you were on maternity leave?

Aaradhya and I have a soul connect. My day begins and ends with her. From the moment I wake up my entire perspective on the day is centred on her. Her constant presence in my life is not even something I consciously think about it. It’s just there! And I wonder how I lived before she was born. Only a parent would understand how I feel.

Correction, only the mother has this umbilical connection.

Possibly. Though I know many fathers who are equally devoted to their children. I can only speak for myself. To me my world changed the day Aaradhya was born. Everything is the same around me. But she has changed the way I look at the world. The world that I now occupy with my daughter is my reality. Everything else is a secondary.

Is Aaradhya uncomfortable with all the attention she gets at this tender age?

What is really assuring is that she has incredible resilience, by God’s grace. She has seen this (public attention) from infancy. When faced with crowds she becomes very silent and observant, as though taking it all in. Yes, she clings to me in public because there are people screaming and jostling. In fact I get more nervous when I am in crowds with her than she.

Why is that?

Look, anything can happen. Not that anyone means any harm. But in the sea of humanity even a little jostle can hurt my daughter. So I proceed protectively with her through the crowd while she remains cool. Everyone is beaming and waving and calling out her name. It’s a friendly world for her. Everyone seems to know her and she needs to know everybody. So there is no attempt to make her feel like a celebrity.

It can’t be that easy.

I take her with me everywhere so she is a part of my multi-tasking life. I keep it as real for her as possible, and very normal. Now she is in school like any normal girl. But even when she was a toddler I’d take her to the play-park to be with other children. It becomes difficult in Mumbai. But when I’m travelling I take her out to the park . Even there, there are people who recognize us. But they are normal parents and children. Aaradhya has to have a normal life. I’ve explained to her that is my life and now she’s part of it. So she’s comfortable in it.

It couldn’t be easy to create an atmosphere of normalcy around Aaradhya?

It didn’t just happen. One has to work on it, channelize all energies into keeping it all real and normal for Aaradhya. I am glad I took time off to work on looking after her. When people meet Aaradhya they say she’s such a normal child. That’s my reward as a mother.

She is already a gadget-friendly kid.

I made sure she doesn’t spend too much on gadgets. Pa (Aishwarya’s father-in-law, Amitabh Bachchan) gifted her an IPad at a very young age. For her it is a like a book. But I never allowed her to get hooked to any gadget. I don’t want her to become one of those people who talk on the phone and to the person in front of them at the same time.

How do you now adjust your shooting schedules to match Aaradhya’s timings?

When I am shooting I start my day really early. During Jazbaa, we shot a lot on the roads and in the grime. So every morning the hair had to be washed. To keep it real on screen is not easy. Then I’d take her to school.

Did you have to tell her "Mama is going to office", like Lara Dutta told her daughter when she resumed acting?

No, you see, with me its slightly different. Even when I was not acting I was doing endorsements, events , etc. Aaradhya would accompany me to all these. Motherhood is all about planning. During Jazbaa, Sanjay Gupta phased out the shooting over 51 days according to my time constraints.

Apparently you had a special van for yourself and Aaradha on the sets?

This is a false rumour. There was no special van . Just that I kept it very hygienic. Immediately after Aaradhya’s school was over every day I’d pick her up and bring her to wherever we were shooting.

It couldn’t have been as easy as it sounds.

It’s not easy for any working mother. Every wife mother and professional has to do a lot of planning. The stuff I pack every day has to include activities for Aaradhya during the day, and her food. But I’d say I am fortunate I can bring my child to my work place. A lot of mothers can’t. It may be a lot of planning but I happily do it for my child. And I do it on my own.

What do you mean?

People assume I’ve a posse of workers helping me. Wrong! I’ve never had nurses and nannies for Aaradhya. This was partly due to ignorance. I didn’t know one could hire reliable help for one’s child. There was just one helper and she was my extended hand. Otherwise it’s just me and my daughter.

Does Aaradhya enjoy your shooting?

She gets very excited. When she’s told I'm working she is fully into the day. She has completely embraced my work.

You’re very fortunate to have a child who understands your job.

I worked on it. I had to train Aaradhya to understand that the sets, locations and camera are the family’s reality. With my first film after comeback it helped that the director was a father of two children. The locations were worked out so that Aaradhaya didn’t have to miss school.
