During a recent trip to London, renowned Bollywood actress of yesteryears, Jaya Bachchan, whos is the wife of Amitabh Bachchan and mother of Abhishek Bachchan, talked fondly about her granddaughter Aaradhya Bachchan during the course of an interview to BBC and Sabras Radio.
She revealed Aaradhya's overall looks. She told the channels, "Aaradhya looks like a bit of Aishwarya and a bit of Abhishek. She's a tall girl."
Jaya praised her daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai and said that she does not depend on anyone but looks after her daughter all be herself and she has done a beautiful job. However, Jaya admits, that Aishwarya is a little overcautious with Aardhya and now that her granddaughter is seven months old, Aishwarya should go out more often.
Jaya Bachchan calls her granddaughter 'Strawberry'. The proud granny explained that Aaradhya resembled a red strawberry when she was born and hence she has nicknamed her after the fruit.
"She is beautiful. I call her Strawberry because when she was born she reminded me of a strawberry. She is always smiling. Touchwood. Now she's trying to crawl and it's special to us," Jaya told the channels.
Jaya also revealed the chemistry between herself and her daughter-in-law. They share an easy camaraderie. Jaya often teases Aishwarya that Aaradhya is probably the luckiest girl in the world, "because can you imagine having a nurse like Miss World Aishwarya"!
Currently, the family of three, Aaradhya, Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan are holidaying in London and spending some quality time together, away from the media glare.
Aishwarya has been spotted shopping and strolling around the streets of London, something that she cannot imagine doing in any part of India.
