Amitabh Bachchan Says Aishwarya Rai will Bring Happiness to Bachchan Family

Amitabh Bachchan, a legendary actor of Bollywood, has recently said that he is very much happy with the wedding of his son Abhishek Bachchan with Aishwarya Rai. He thinks that Aishwarya Rai will bring a lot of happiness in the Bachchan family. Here, it is notable that the marriage ceremony was held last week creating a huge media attention. Amitabh Bachchan has recently gave an interview where he claimed that if he had no chance to beyond the guest list invited for the marriage as saying the number of guests would be 20,000 if all of the friends of Bachchan family were invited. For your convenience, I am quoting some lines of the interview from Andhracafe reported:

Q: How does it feel to have Aishwarya Rai in the house?

A: It's wonderful! I'm sure there'll be even more happiness in the house because of her.

Q: Will Aishwarya assume the Bachchan name on the passport? Would you like a working daughter-in-law?

A: I've no problem with whatever name she keeps. As far as her continuing to work is concerned, Jaya and I have no problem with that. It's for Aishwarya and Abhishek to decide.

Q: There were many people who felt hurt because they couldn't come to the wedding.

A: Let me put my circumstances before you, and leave it to you and the world in general to judge and sentence us. We were dealing with a marriage and a guest list that was going out from seven privileged personalities and celebrities - my late father, Harivanshrai Bachchan, a literary giant who has his own admirers in the literary world... then my mother, Teji Bachchan, who has relatives friends and associates going back to 90 years.

There was Jaya, a personality in her own right with a large circle of relatives and friends, there were Abhishek and Aishwarya and there was Amar Singh and then finally there was yours truly... These were the hosts to the wedding. Please tell me, how do we even begin to invite all the people who are associated with these seven people?

Yes, it seems that Bachchan family had nothing to with the guest lists. Moreover, Amitabh Bachchan had expressed that he is not happy with the activities of the media over the marriage ceremony.
