Why are Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan so secretive about Beti B Aaradhya?

No, they aren’t planning to introduce the apple of their eyes to the world in the way that Hollywood does it, by selling pictures and stories to glossies. It’s a rather simple diktat they are following instead

Time and again we have noticed that beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or her better half Abhishek Bachchan or the patriarch of the family, Amitabh Bachchan, has been extremely tight-lipped about the youngest member of the clan. We have got tired of the secretive attitude and the fact that posing questions to them is like talking to a wall!

But finally AB’s baby’s reasons for the family being so guarded about baby Aaradhya have been made public. In an interview to a newspaper the Bol Bachchan actor says, “My daughter is not an object to flash around or a prized item to put on display. She’s a small baby.” We agree completely, but why this we-won’t-talk-about-Aaradhya attitude?

It turns out that the new mummy and daddy want a normal childhood for their darling daughter. By that Abhi means: “I had a middle-class upbringing. We weren’t given special treatment. I didn’t realise dad was a star till my teens, he was Pa, and mom was Ma. We were not made aware of their celebrity status. Mom ensured that. I want my daughter to grow up as normally as I did.”

See, that’s all it takes to shut up curious cats! Had Abhi-Ash said it earlier, no one would have pried so much into their family matters! Right, na?
