In a candid chat about his love life with YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia, Abhishek Bachchan revealed he met Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the first time in the Swizz country while he was on a recce for the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Mrityudata.
Recounting his first meeting with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan said, “I first met her when I was a production boy.

Continuing further on how exactly he met Aishwarya, Abhishek said, “I had been there for a couple of days, all alone. And that’s when a childhood friend of mine, Bobby Deol, was shooting for his first film – Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. And he got to know I was there and said ‘Hey, why don’t you come over for dinner?’ And that’s the first time when they were shooting when I met Aishwarya.”
During the same chat, Abhishek was also asked if, after meeting the ex-Miss World, he ever had a crush on Aishwarya. To this, he replied, “Who doesn’t crush on her man?”
