BOLLYWOOD actors enjoy nothing less than a demi-god status in our country, where people worship them (literally). Legions of fans are quick to come to their stars’ defence should any problem arise. But sometimes, this fan-love goes a bit too far. Make that way too far!
The latest example is that of a 29-year old man, Sangeeth Kumar from Andhra Pradesh, who is claiming that actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is his mother! Yes, you read that right! He claims that he was born six years before she went on to win the Miss World crown in 1994.
As bizarre as it may sound, he has added that he was born through IVF, and spent the first two years of his life with his ‘grandparents’ Brinda Krishnaraj Rai and Krishnaraj Rai, Aishwarya’s parents. Aishwarya is yet to comment on this.
This is just the latest entrant to a list of such hard-to-believe claims made by fans in all these years.
In 2012, the late actor Rajkumar’s daughter, Vastavikta, claimed to be actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife. She would follow him to his shoots and wait outside his building. Matters came to a head when she scaled Shahid’s building perimeter wall and reached his apartment on the 13th floor. Shahid ultimately had to file a police complaint against Vastavikta.
