Recently, Amitabh Bachchan made headlines for sharing an appreciation post for his grandson, Agastya for his debut film, ‘The Archies’. However, netizens slammed him for never hyping Aishwarya Rai!
Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan needs no introduction, as he enjoys an enormous fan following. Big B and his wife, Jaya Bachchan are part of one of the royal families in Bollywood. Jaya and Big B are parents to two beautiful children, Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda and grandparents to three grandkids, Agastya Nanda, Navya Naveli Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan. The Bachchan clan is known for its love for tradition and family values.

A Reddit user slams Amitabh Bachchan for not sharing social media posts for his bahu, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Now, a Reddit user has reshared the picture that Big B posted to promote his grandson, Agastya’s upcoming debut film and pointed out how Big B never posts anything for his bahu, Aishwarya Rai, even on the possible biggest films of her career. Expressing his disappointment over the same, the user penned a note, which can be read as:
‘Amit Ji couldn’t post for Aish, on her possible biggest films of career. But here posting a picture of Twinkle Khanna and Shweta Nanda so he can connect the dots and hype Agastya’s upcoming film Archies to his 34.5 millions followers. Nana ji ki priorities clear hai.’
Netizens express anger as Big B’s post for Agastya goes viral
As soon as the post was shared on Reddit, netizens bombarded the comment section and started a debate. Many social media users pointed out the hypocrisy of the Bachchan clan for not cheering for Aishwarya even on her biggest achievements. Reacting to the video, one user penned, ‘Bachchans are known to be deeply deeply patriarchal. But I think they’ve all just settled into their own spaces & Ash is her own world, it appears. But from Naavya’s podcast, it’s clear that she, Shweta & Jaya don’t really care for Ash. They spoke about everyone in the family BUT her. It’s very telling.’ Another one commented, ‘There’s a reason why Aish’s mom unfollowed both Amitabh and Abhishek.’
When Amitabh Bachchan revealed how things changed after Aishwarya’s entry into their family
Aishwarya Rai is a doting bahu of the Bachchan family, and it was in no time that she became a vital part of the clan and completely gelled with them. Moreover, her father-in-law, Amitabh Bachchan adores his bahu for the pure soul she is and often heaps praises on her. A proof of the same we witnessed in the season finale episode of Starry Nights 2.Oh!, when Big B was asked how the family dynamics changed after Abhishek and Aishwarya’s wedding. To which, the loving sasurji said:
‘Nothing has changed for us, it was like one daughter left and another one came in.’
