Is American chat show queen, Oprah Winfrey, going to introduce the Bachchan family's youngest member, Beti B - one of India's youngest and probably most famous and mysterious celebrities - on her show? She could well be... if a report by NDTV is any indication.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the proud mother, has appeared twice on Winfrey's shows - before and after her marriage to Abhishek Bachchan. The second time, she was accompanied on the show by her husband.
Oprah Winfrey recently made her maiden visit to India and apparently, she was so eager to see Aishwarya's baby she went straight from the airport to the Bachchan family residence. A long time friend of the Bachchans (Aishwarya in particular), she spent approximately one hour at their home, according to a report on the timesofindia.com.
When asked what the baby's name was, Oprah replied, I'll just call her Princess. She's beautiful. Apparently, the first child of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will soon be named.
It has been two months since Aishwarya gave birth. The media, however, despite constantly clamoring, have yet to be given a glimpse of the next generation of one of Bollywood's most influential families. Nevertheless, the family has refused to grant exclusive photography rights and have not posted their own photographs on any social networking Web site (Amitabh Bachchan is extremely active on Twitter, where he has a large fan following). That might change all too soon.
Meanwhile, during her visit to the country, Winfrey was driven to a party by an excited Amitabh, along with his wife, Jaya Bachchan, and Abhishek and Aishwarya. The party was held in Winfrey's honor.
Amithabh Bachchan's tweet later said: The gracious Oprah Winfrey visits our home, to meet us and bless the baby...warm hearted, endearing...drive her to the party in her honour. And Oprah in sari... looking lovely!!
Winfrey's visit to the country, it is believed, was in connection with her new talk show, Next Chapter. Furthermore, she isn't just filming a short television episode in India. She is, instead, shooting an entire series set in the country, according to Gather News.
