Aishwarya Rai’s first hubby is a big Anna Hazare fan

Former Miss world and actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s first husband, a Varanasi-based Banyan tree Ficus is a big fan of anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare. The now divorced husband had met the leader few years back when Anna came to Varanasi to lead an agitation against corruption in civic bodies here.

Ficus with Anna
“Yes, I am deeply inspired by him. In a world filled with shallow leaders with wafer thin egos and equally thin intellect, Anna stands out as a visionary and as a champion of the masses. I have had the pleasure of meeting him during one of his visits to Varanasi and feel he is a blessing for the nation and its people,” the huge banyan tree told Humor Unplugged.

Speaking about his past relationship with Aishwarya, he says that he does not regret the relationship or the marriage. “We were both young those days. I was just out of another relationship and so was she and we were both seeking solace in each other and I must say we have spent some memorable time together cracking jokes about lichens, exploring the working of chloroplast and talking about electron transport chain in the mitochondrion and oxidative phosphorylation. Everything happened so fast that before we could push the pause button, we were married and I am not sure if that is what we wanted to do and so we decided to revisit our relationship. We were just not ready for that kind of commitment," Ficus said.

Aish with Ficus 
Speaking about his future he says that he still has years to live and is working hard to set his priorities right. “I have lots to do and I am not sure where I will be 50 years from now. But come what may you will still see me doing photosynthesis with pride and joy. The anti-corruption movement has given a new meaning to my life and the fact that I could meet Anna has definitely helped me think more clearly. The world knows me as Aishwarya Rai's divorced husband but, I want to develop an identity of my own - independent of my former wife”.

He also said that he doesn’t harbor any ill feelings towards his former wife. “I wish her all the best. I hope her husband starts doing some quality movies and ads instead of the amoeboid stuff that he has been doing offlate,” he said.
