There was a time when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s daughter Aaradhya would get really shy on seeing the paparazzi. She would either try hiding her face or get cranky. At one point in time, it almost felt like she hates stepping out in public. But looks like as and how she’s growing up, she finally understands that shutterbugs do no harm but are in fact here to only make you feel important. I mean, you saw how she owned the Cannes red carpet by being her mum ’s shadow this year. Or say for that matter, take all the recent public appearances that she has been busy lighting up with her smile. But nothing in comparison to this cutesy moment that she shared with Aishwarya at the airport this morning.
Aaradhya seemed so happy for some reason that while she was walking hand-in-hand with Aishwarya, she suddenly stopped, looked at her mom and blew an adorable air-kiss. Like, I don’t remember ever seeing Aaradhya indulging in such PDA. But obviously, Aishwarya too was pleasantly surprised as returned the love with a bigger mwuah. Here, we have the video for you to see. Watch it and tell us if you don’t go aww seeing this adorable mother-daughter duo.
Recently, when Aishwarya was asked how does Aaradhya deal with the paparazzi, she had said, “I haven’t made a conversation out of it. She is a child and I can’t casually say that she understands it. It can never be normal as there is nothing normal about it. Aaradhya has seen it [the attention] since she was a baby, while I was exposed to it only in my twenties. Is it normal for her? I don’t know. It can’t be normal to see human beings behave strangely. But also it’s not like she woke up one day and experienced it. She has seen crowds outside our gates, media outside the airports and I would like to believe that she realizes that it happens sporadically. I have been a very normal mother with her throughout. I have gone with her everywhere. I go to her school every day. I have done normal things with her like taking her to the park, visited temples, go to the supermarket etc. so that she understands what ‘normal normal’ is and what social excitement is.”
