A hapless Abhishek tweeted that news of him buying his wife and baby girl a lush holiday home in Dubai were mere rumours
She is only a year old, yet any bit of news about the little princess of the Bachchan khandaan Aaradhya Bachchan turns into nothing short of media frenzy!
In a repeat incident, the media began speculating furiously of how Abhishek Bachchan had purchased a lavish holiday home in Dubai for Rs 54 crores for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya. Abhishek, who was at a Ritu Beri event, was queried by the media about where his wife and little daughter were, and why he didn’t get them along to the event. Poor Aby baby said nothing but that they were in Mumbai, and the ever hungry media heard it like they wanted to and went on a crazy spree speculating that Abhishek had bought them a home in Dubai!
Not only that, even the cost of the home they allegedly purchased was estimated to be somewhere around Rs 54 crores, and that they were going to move to Dubai for a few days! With the news spreading like wildfire over the weekend, Abhishek finally had to announce through Twitter that he had said no such thing. The actor tweeted, “My dearest media. Last night at the event I said Aishwarya and Aaradhya were in MUMbai NOT DUbai. Thanks.” Even their publicists said there was no truth to the matter, “Both Aishwarya and Aaradhya are in Mumbai and have not travelled to Dubai. No house has been presented or gifted to Aaradhya.”
And this is not the first time that such a thing has happened. Last year in November, when Abhishek and Aishwarya gifted a Mini Cooper to Amitabh Bachchan on Aaradhya’s first birthday, the media again began a wave of intense speculation that the car was in fact a birthday gift for little one! And grandpa Amitabh had to later come out on Twitter and quell the rumours.
Now we hope that the media keeps their ears open the next time before another Bachchan would have to take to the social media to kill frivolous rumours!
