Aishwarya Rai wants to continue acting
The gorgeous newly wed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan says she wants to continue acting and finds it wonderful to be married to her best friend.
Ash said she took a very important step in life by deciding to marry Abhishek Bachchan and that it turned out to be the best move.
“There is immense love and respect,” Ash was quoted in an interview to a daily.
Ash said she had no immediate plans to give up her successful acting career, although she was looking forward to having children at some time.
“In future, obviously there will be children and then I will plan my time accordingly,” Ash told the paper. In the meantime, she said she plans to continue working.
Ash also said she was excited about working with her husband in Sarkar 2 , in which she will play a powerful woman who manages mob business.
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma , the movie is a sequel to the 2005 hit Sarkar about a ruthless mob boss played by Amitabh Bachchan , Ash's father-in-law.

Abhishek Bachchan says it is too early to feel any change after marrying Aishwarya Rai, a news report said on Monday.
He was shooting for Laaga Chunri Mein Daag at a suburban studio and took a short break to talk.
“Give me some time. It's not like she is waiting for me when I get back home. Things around me may have changed, but I am the same old Abhishek, a Boston student once, now an actor just married. It's no big deal,” a daily quoted Abshishek as saying.
“Ash is working too, you know,” he added.
The couple will now work together in Sarkar 2 in which Aishwarya will play a powerful woman who manages mob business.
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, the movie is a sequel to the 2005 hit Sarkar about a ruthless mob boss played by Amitabh Bachchan. The three will appear on screen together in the movie. They had earlier worked together in Bunti or Babli.
“I am looking forward to working with my wife. She is a wonderful co-star,” Abhishek said.
“But whether she will get us a dabba of home-cooked food and whether the sets will resemble our home, you've got to ask Ash,” he said.
Speaking to the press for the first time following her marriage, Aishwarya also started off by promoting brand Bachchan.
"I feel blessed, I think it's wonderful to be married to your best friend. There is immense love and respect. I have the most wonderful father-in-law and mother-in-law, who treat me like their daughter," she told.
Her effusive praise for the Bachchan brand turned to evasive circumspection, befitting an Indian bahu, when quizzed what kind of a husband was Abhishek.
"If I start on that, we'll have to get onto an autobiography… there are too many details involved. In short, I'm in a happy place."
Interestingly, Aishwarya gave an insight into Bachchan's desire to make amends for the huge controversy over the exclusive Abhishek - Aishwarya wedding guest list.
"We do hope that in future, during a festival or our anniversary, we will have a larger celebration. The family has always partied and will continue to do so."
Aishwarya denies she and Abhishek broke many hearts when they married on 20 April, 2007.
"Going by the emails and letters, people are happy for us. We saw so much happiness, both among men as well as women… So contrary to what is assumed, our marriage hasn't broken hearts. We can feel it."
