Then, in April 2007, the celebration began. "Indian weddings are elaborate," Abhi says. "As a culture, we like to celebrate everything. … Our weddings go on for sometimes a week, 10 days."
On the day of the wedding ceremony, thousands of fans filled the streets outside Abhi's home, hoping to get a glimpse of the Bollywood stars. Once inside, the couple held a private ceremony for family and friends.
Soon after the wedding, Ash says the media started speculating about a possible pregnancy. "I have been proclaimed pregnant already a couple of times. I'm like, 'Okay, is that a hint?'" she says. "People would be watching every little bulge, and I'm like, "Oh my God. If you're not in shape, you're pregnant."
