He explained to Raj Shamaniin his podcast how you can be irritated about, be it Mumbai’s traffic or anything, when you come back home. He said that Aishwarya asks him to calm down getting upset over trivial things in life.
“She’s like, ‘What are you getting so hyper about? Calm down, you know there are more important things? You’ve come home and you have a healthy happy family,’” he said.
Abhishek then recalled the time when his entire family was down with Covid and what Aishwarya told him at that time hit him hard. He said that his father Amitabh Bachchan, his wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, all were in the hospital at the same time. One by one they got discharged and he was the last one to come home.
When Abhishek came back home after being in the hospital for almost a month, Aishwarya told him, “You know we’re so lucky that we’re all still here. There’s so many families that have been ravaged by Covid and we’re very lucky and what’s more important.”
While praising Aishwarya, Abhishek concluded by saying, “Whenever I’m asked, ‘Oh, how’s the family?’ I say, ‘They’re healthy.’ She just puts those priorities into place and I think it was amazing for her to say when I thought about it.”
