It’s no surprise that the couple were so secretive.
Both actors had always kept a low profile about their relationship and probing questions have been answered either by silence or flippant jokes. Although the couple were seen arriving at various places of worship separately, it was only in November 2006 that Aishwarya was first seen in public with the Bachchan family in Banaras.Adding fuel to the fire were reports that special aartis were performed at the Kashi Vishwanath Temple praying for a successful future for the couple. “It will be a very successful wedding because they are following traditions. When the Bachchan family last came here, we even made Abhishek and Aishwarya perform a puja,” said Srikant Tripathi, Priest, Vishwanath Temple.The couple seem to find a lot of respite in God's house. Days before the release of his film Guru, Abhishek along with his father walked barefoot to Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai The romance which started on the sets of JP Dutta's Umrao Jaan grew on the sets of Dhoom 2 and Mani Ratnam's Guru where Aishwarya plays the role of Abhishek's better half.
