Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan
America has Hollywood. Nigeria has Nollywood. But in India, it's all about Bollywood.

This booming, Hindi-language film industry turns out hundreds of vibrant films and musicals every year. And while many Hollywood celebrities have made names for themselves internationally, it's Bollywood that boasts the most famous couple in the world—Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan.

Ash and Abhi, as they're known to their 5 billion fans around the globe, were Bollywood superstars long before they fell in love and got married in April 2007. Abhi, Ash's leading man, was born into India's film industry. Both of his parents are famous Bollywood actors, and over the years, he's starred in more than 40 films.

After being crowned Miss World in 1994, Ash became Bollywood's breakout star. Since then, this emerald-eyed actress has landed dozens of endorsement deals and starred in more than 40 movies. She reportedly earns more than $15 million per film.

Now, for the first time, Ash and Abhi are sitting down for their first television interview together!
