“I would like to congratulate Abhishek and Aishwarya," Salman told the reporters at an event, where he and the Chillar Party gang launched a Blackberry application. The actor in his usual humourous mood told that he hopes the couple make a whole football team. Adding more to his wishes, Salman declared himself as chacha (uncle) of the soon-to-be born baby. He congratulated Amitabh Bachchan on becoming a grandfather.
Aishwarya and Salman shared a love relationship, back in 1999. A few years later they parted ways. Aishwarya then dated Vivek Oberoi for a while, when she actually found her true love in Abhishek Bachchan. The couple got married on April 20, 2007.
