In its fourth season, Indian filmmaker Karan Johar's popular chat show, 'Koffee with Karan' has many firsts.

From luring Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and  Anurag Kashyap, many celebrities have appeared on the show for the first time.

In the Sunday episode director Farah Khan and Abhishek Bachchan will share the couch. By the looks of the promos, it's going to be a laugh riot.

But most interestingly Abhishek opens up on National television on why Aishwarya Rai Bachchan married him.

Abhishek says that his actress wife Aishwarya did not marry him because he is a film star or the son of megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
In 'Koffee with Karan', when asked by the host Karan Johar about the "insecurity" coming from being married to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, "the most beautiful woman on the face of earth", Abhishek said there was none.
"I believe she is and to me she is the most beautiful thing on earth. I see myself in the mirror every day and it is a horrific sight. So I am not competing, I can't. The reason why we got together wasn't cosmetic," Abhishek said.
"She is one of the most down to earth.... normal people you will ever meet. She hasn't married me because I am a film star or I am a Bachchan and I haven't married her because she is the most beautiful woman on earth or one of the biggest stars on earth, so that never comes in the equation," he said.
Abhishek and Aishwarya tied the knot in 2007. They have a daughter named Aaradhya.
