Beti B named Aaradhya?
Mumbai: The wait is over for Bachchan fans as the family is reported to have named Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan's daughter Aaradhya. The word Aaradhya means 'one who is worth worshipping' in Sanskrit. The Bollywood couple has registered the name of their daughter couple of days back with the Bombay Municipal Corporation, media reports said. However, the name of the youngest member of the family has not been confirmed by grandfather Amitabh Bachchan or others.
Fans and followers of the Bachchans have continuously speculated about the name of the child right from the time she was born last year. So far the child was referred to as 'Beti B'. There were also speculations days back that the name that has been zeroed in on for Beti B is ‘Aaliya’; however Abhishek rubbished all such rumors saying that the name certainly is not that. Earlier, author and commentator Shobha De posted on her twitter account, “Beti B to be named Abhilasha?That's a stroke of genius.Well done,parents.Abhi and Ash.Truly inspired, if true.” It seems that the mystery over the name of 'Beti B' is likely to get over soon after the star family of B-town confirms it.

She was out on a dinner with Pooja Batra in the Studio City area and was nibbling on one of her favourite foods sushi. Even as Kash was telling Pooja about how she got robbed in the capital sometime ago, a robber smashed one of the window panes of her rented car parked outside the restaurant and disappeared with a portable GPS device on her dashboard and a bag containing her boots. Last seen, Kashmera was laughing at the police station, filing another complaint amidst bemused faces of firang cops, who weren’t aware that she got robbed the second time round in two months. Kash later gushed, “Maybe, the thief needed my GPS system and boots more than me! But if he had tried his luck in front of me, then he’d have been in real trouble.”
