Aishwarya back to work, hubby blasts media

Feb 19, 2010 IANS

Mumbai, Feb 19(IANS) Aishwarya Rai is back to gruelling shooting schedules for Vipul Shah's "Action Replayy" after her brief illness.

The 36-year-old, who returned home with high fever from the sets of "Action Replayy" in Manori in northern Mumbai Feb 11, did a full-day photoshoot Friday with lead actor Akshay Kumar at Film City here Friday, said a source close to the actress.

Doctors last week advised Aishwarya bed rest as she was suffering from sore throat and body pain. After resting for a few days, she went to Bhopal to visit Abhishek's maternal grandmother for her 80th birthday Monday and now she is back to work.

Her illness caused a local tabloid to speculate that the actress is suffering from stomach tuberculosis - which is causing pregnancy troubles for her. However, both her husband Abhishek Bachchan and her father-in-law, veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan have lambasted the tabloid for indulging in "irresponsible journalism".

"The article is disgusting and appalling. As a husband and a man I'm shocked that one can talk so irresponsibly about a woman, that too falsely! On a personal note, as a husband I will not stand for such rubbish being written about my wife," Abhishek posted on his Twitter page.

"I have never reacted to all the fabricated stories written by the media about me and my own. But this is the limit! You want to write and malign me or my father I will take it. But the ladies of my home are off limits! They've gone too far this time," he added.

Amitabh has posted a copy of the article on his blog and branded the news "completely false, completely fabricated, unsubstantiated, insensitive and of the lowest quality of journalism there ever was."
