Many do not know that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan fell in love with her husband Abhishek Bachchan during the shooting of filmmaker J P Dutta’s Umrao Jaan.

On the work front, the second unknown fact is that Aishwarya's in-laws have no interest or say in her career decisions. She doesn't discuss the films she signs with them. Everyone in the family gets space to take professional decisions without dinner table conferences.

The third unknown fact is- Aishwarya is an able singer. She has a great singing voice and she loves to sing for those close to her. Those privileged to hear her sing include husband Abhishek and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. Many are not aware that Aishwarya loves collecting knickknacks from all over the world. Another unknown fact is that whenever wherever Aishwarya travels, she buys little souvenirs and her home Jalsa is strewn with souvenirs purchased by the family’s Bahu.

Another unknown fact about the actress is that her next film is directed by her second-favourite director Mani Ratnam where she plays a negative role, not for the first time.
