Earlier news doing rounds about Aishwarya Rai was that, before tying the knot with Abhishek Bachchan , Aishwarya Rai may have to perform some complex ceremonies and rituals. According to an earlier tabloid report, as Aishwarya Rai is a 'Manglik', she may have to undergo a ‘Kumbh Vivah’ before marrying Abhishek Bachchan & may have to tie the knot two times to make her marriage successful. Two times, yes , she may have to marry a peepal or banana tree before her marriage with Abhishek. While this may sound weird but there may be some substance in such a weird ritual that Ash has to perform considering that the Bachchans are a very religious family.

Now there is another controversy about her marrying a peepal or banana tree before her marriage with Abhishek. As per a report A public interest litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Patna High Court against Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai for marrying trees to overcome astrological differences with her fiancé Abhishek Bachchan. Lawyer Shruti Singh, who filed the PIL , says the ritual promotes untouchability.

"I filed a PIL to stop such practices as reportedly conducted by actor Amitabh Bachchan for his future daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai. It is in violation of Article 17 of the Constitution, which prohibits untouchability. It also violates fundamental human rights," said Shruti.

According to Shruti, the fact that Aishwarya had to marry the trees and the idol before marrying Abhishek, who is a non-Manglik, amounts to untouchability.

"The rituals performed by Aishwarya, Amitabh and Abhishek would only promote superstitions and blind faith among common people," Shruti, who is also a women's rights activist.

Aishwarya Rai is a popular actress in Bollywood & Americans are waiting to see her in Hollywood films too! She has lots of fans in the USA too & she was also a former Miss World while Abhishek Bachchan is also an established Actor in Bollywood Film Industry & is the son of Great Amitabh Bachchan & Jaya Bachchan who too are an established name in Bollywood.
