2018 has started on a bizarre note for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, with a 29-year-old man from Andhra Pradesh claiming that the actress is his mother.
Sangeeth Kumar, who adds Rai after his first and middle name, insists that Aishwarya gave birth to him in 1988, reports Deccan Chronicle. Interestingly, Aishwarya was only 14 years old in 1988.
"I was born to her by IVF in London in 1988.I was brought up in Chodavaram from age three to 27. I was with my grandmother Brinda Krishnaraj Rai's family at the age of one and two in Mumbai. My grandfather Krishnaraj Rai died in April 2017 (March), and my uncle's name in Aditya Rai," he told the media in Mangaluru last week.
Sangeeth, who does not have any proof of his claims, also alleged that his 'mother' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is sepearated from her husband, Abhishek Bachchan, and is "living alone". "I want my mom to come and live with me in Mangaluru. It's already 27 years since I separated from my family, I miss her a lot. I don't want to go to Visakhapatnam, at least I want my mother's number so that I'll be free," he added.
He claims that he did not speak up earlier because he was "manipulated" by relatives. "I'm getting enormous headache and anger at my native place, most of my relatives have manipulated things since childhood, otherwise I would have come back to my mother before itself with clear information. Due to lack of information, I could not come to my mother, so now I got all clarity. Ultimate thing is I want my mom," Sangeeth said.
Meanwhile, Aishwarya has been busy shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's musical comedy Fanney Khan. She will be paired opposite Rajkummar Rao in the film, which also features Anil Kapoor in the lead.
