Later Abhishek revealed that he was visiting the country along with his father, Amitabh Bachchan for a recce of his film Mrityudata. He had been worked as a production boy at the time and said that it was because of Bobby that he first met Aishwarya – who he also had a crush on at the time.
Abhishek continued: “I had been there for a couple of days, all alone. And that’s when a childhood friend of mine, Bobby Deol, was shooting for his first film – Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. And he got to know I was there and said ‘Hey, why don’t you come over for dinner?’
That was the first time when they were shooting when I met Aishwarya.”
He said: “I first met her when I was a production boy. There was a film my father was making called Mrityudata, and I had gone for the location recce to Switzerland. Because the company felt that because I had grown up in Switzerland in boarding school that I would be able to take them to nice locations.”
