Aishwarya Rai’s daughter Aaradhya was not even mentioned on Oprah Winfrey’s show!

A BollywoodLife reader saw Oprah’s The Next Chapter episode and pinged us

So Aaradhya Bachchan aka Beti B did not make an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s new showThe Next Chapter, after all. There was a huge buzz that Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan’s darling daughter will say her first hi to the world on the world’s most celebrated talk show. But alas! It didn’t happen.

A BollywoodLife reader happened to catch the show in the United States and immediately informed us (we had asked for some dope from our US readers). Said Erin at 1.23pm IST, “The show aired hours ago, Aishwarya and Abhishek were barely featured, no mention of the baby’s name and no shot of the baby.”

While we are sad that Aaradhya was not even mentioned, forget shown, what makes us sadder is Erin’s observation that Aishwarya and Abhishek were “barely featured”. As if to compensate, Oprah tweeted a picture of her India visit, with Abhishek and her helping Aishwarya step down, and Amitabh Bachchan in the background. Left us highly unsatisfied we must say…. About time Beti B’s picture is shared with the world, at least. What do you think?

Meanwhile, we hear that a new girls’ college in Daulatpur, Uttar Pradesh is going to be named after Aishwarya. The Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Girls’ College, as it will be called, will be built by Amitabh Bachchan’s foundation, Sewa Sansthan. The college was delayed for some time and is now being revived – maybe the birth of Aaradhya has made the Bachchan’s speed up the process of doing their bit for the girl child. Now this is something the Bachchan family fans will be truly proud of, won’t they?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Hello I’m a U.S viewer I was very excited to watch the show. Yes it is true that Abhi-Aish were not featured for long as I had expected atleast, but Oprah did talk about them being on her show before and how she told them she would meet up with them if she ever came to India. The show went a little in depth into Aish and Abhi whereas only a glimpse was shown of other Bollywood stars like Priyanka Chopra. Most of the Bollywood “biggies” were not even mentioned or shown apart from Amitabh, Aishwarya, Abhishek, Jaya,A.R Rahman, and Priyanka. And there is no surprise Beti B wasn’t shown. Even before I saw the show I did not have any expectations of seeing Beti B. When I saw the preview I knew the Bachchans are not going to allow cameras inside their homes. Oprah said it herself on the show that she asked them if cameras are allowed in, but they said no so she went inside while cameras stayed outside. And Oprah did mention that Aish gave birth and she was as beautiful as the parents, but she didnot mention the name of their daughter. Perhaps respecting the Bachchans wishes, who knows? There are 3 other parts coming still of her India trip. So far I was very pleased with this episode. I love Oprah for doing this.

    Just to get a glimpse of Aishwarya Rai or read news (good news) about her makes her fans extremely happy. I am glad that Media stopped writing bogus stories about Bachdhans a little less than usual. Hats off to media and keep on improving

    • Maya

      almost a has been? do you even know what her up coming work is? She is very much around and will be around for a while. And there are obviously people willing enough to read this article-but funny, after that they abuse and criticise as well. It’s amusing actually! :)

    These people (the Bachchans) are idiots. They seem to think that by withholding these details or hiding their baby away, that through elusiveness and mystery, their baby becomes even more special – but I think the opposite – who gives a damn.

    They’re treated like royalty in India, and with their fans, they can’t share their happiness, yet their stupid adoring fans continue to put up.

    The general public out there need to fix up and ignore them. It’s all a stunt. The marriage of these two is a joke too. Big names, big money.

    Why is Aishwarya being helped down a couple steps? It’s not like she just gave birth or does she really require that much maintenance!

    • Maya

      Is that really any of our business?

  • Sada

    Or maybe she just didn’t want to show her baby on air?

    Doesn’t have to be an in depth analysis of why Oprah and her producers didn’t cover a story like that fully. Could be plain and simple… they just didn’t want that aired… for whatever personal reason they (Bachanan) have.

    I wanted to send you that liltte bit of remark in order to say thanks a lot over again over the stunning knowledge you’ve provided at this time. It is simply particularly generous of you to deliver unhampered all most people could have advertised for an ebook in order to make some cash for themselves, primarily considering that you could have tried it in the event you desired. These strategies likewise served to become a fantastic way to understand that someone else have the same keenness the same as my personal own to see great deal more when it comes to this condition. I know there are many more enjoyable moments up front for many who go through your blog post.




    I always like aishwarya rai and her children.
