Bangalore, February 11
Tinsel town's most eligible bachelor Abhishek Bachchan and Bollywood heart-throb Aishwarya Rai may tie the nuptial knot. Yes, this became apparent when Amitabh's brother Ajitabh showed the horoscopes of the two stars to a well-known astrologer, Chandrashekhar Swamiji, here last night.

The astrologer, according to sources, said the horoscopes of the two stars matched perfectly and recommended a quick alliance----"the sooner the better". He also predicted a happy married life for the two.

Ajitabh, who has now apparently patched up with his brother, was at the R.T. Nagar residence of the astrologer last evening. He stayed over for the night and left for Mumbai today.

Aishwarya's father was believed to be the common link between the astrologer and the Bachchans. Chandrashekhar Swamiji belonged to Punaroor in Mangalore, the native place of the Rai family.

Aishwarya's family is said to consult the astrologer on important matters. Aishwarya visited him two months back while on her way to Tirupati. The astrologer has also conducted poojas for the Rai family.

An aide of the astrologer said Chandrashekhar Swami also advised others in Bollywood, including Dilip Kumar.

The visit is being taken very seriously in movie circles due to the apparent consent being given to the tie-up between the two leading stars by their parents.

According to a PTI report Aishwarya was the only guest to be allowed direct entry into the Bachchan's residence "Jalsa" for Abhishek's birthday bash on February 5 while others had to get down at the gate and then walk in.
