Actor Abhishek Bachchan has recently posted a picture on his micro-blogging site stating the spot as 'Aishwarya point'.
Apparently, the actor was shooting for his next "All Is Well" at Trimbakeshwar in Nasik and there he realised that the place is named after his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Well, it all happened long back when the Bachchan Bahu was shooting for "Khakee" and she met with an accident. Therefore, the spot was named as 'Aishwarya point'.
The "Happy New Year" actor posted the photo of that point and wrote, "How life comes a full circle. I was shooting today at this location which is called Aishwarya point!!! Yup you read it correct. This is the same location where 12yrs ago Aishwarya was shooting for Khakee and had an accident where a bus crashed into her. She miraculously survived (thank God!).This is that very spot, hence the name. And today I shot here a car chase with a truck."
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has not only a spot named after her, but also has a special variety of tulip flower in the Netherlands, named after the beauty queen.
Similarly, there are more such things like places, lakes, dishes which are named after Bollywood superstars. Read below:
Superstar Salman Khan has a café named after him in Turkey. While shooting for "Ek Tha Tiger", the actor used to visit a particular café regularly and thus, the owner renamed it as 'Salman Khan Café'.
Sanjay Dutt is too fond of chicken and thus once suggested a recipe to an owner of a restaurant in South Mumbai. Later, that particular dish got the actor's name as 'Chicken Sanju Baba.'
