Marriage of Aishwarya Rai & Abhishek Bachchan in Fox News

Aishwarya Rai & Abhishek Bachchan is perhaps the most discussed topic in South Asia. This is natural. However, I am surprised to see that it is getting huge coverage in US media too. Take the example of Fox News. Fox News is extremely popular in the US but hardly anyone knows about it in India. Even Fox News is interested about the Marriage of Aishwarya Rai & Abhishek Bachchan.

Fox News wrote:

The affair, hyped by Indian media as "the wedding of the century," was filled with the melodrama so beloved in Bollywood, India's flamboyant Hindi film industry: secrecy, dance routines and even a suicidal fan who claimed to be the groom's jilted lover.

Hundreds of fans cheered as Bachchan, wearing a gold-and-cream turban — his face covered with a traditional veil of white flowers — emerged onto the streets outside his home astride a white stallion, giving his admirers a thumbs-up sign while his friends danced around him.

Bachchan bobbed his head and punched the air with his hands in time to a Bollywood tune played by an accompanying band of red-turbaned musicians.

Even you can find a number of photos of the marriage ceremony in the website of Fox News. This is a good sign for Bollywood stars. Soon, they will become famous in the US too.
