It’s not all about work, or so go the rumours, where the Guru and Umrao Jaan lead pair Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are concerned. Ash and Abhishek have been in and out of Tamilnadu, shooting for Mani Ratnam’s Guru. But it is rumoured that they are also spending a lot of time in each other’s company off the sets.

Ash and Abhishek were apparently seen at various eateries in Chennai and on the lovely beaches of South Chennai, from the Taj’s Fisherman’s Cove to private beach houses, walking hand-in-hand.

This romance seems to be going strong – apparently Ash and Abhishek can’t keep their eyes off each other and even flew out together for 2 days to celebrate the Big B’s 64th birthday in Mumbai.

Of course, none of these starry-eyed emotions were evident when cool Aishwarya walked in to inaugurate the Longines showroom in Chennai recently.

Let’s wait and see what other reports or rumours we hear about India’s most handsome couple’s on- and off-screen chemistry!
