Bachchans slam media for 'spreading rumours' about Aish's delivery date

    The Bachchan family and their doctors have slammed certain sections of the media for 'circulating rumours' about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's planned delivery. A Mumbai tabloid, citing sources, claimed that a luxury hospital suite has been booked for Aishwarya from November 10 to 15 at the Seven Hills Hospital in the Marol-Andheri area of Mumbai – insinuating that Ash's due date definitely falls between these dates. The paper also claimed that there is a possibility of the actress undergoing a C-section procedure on November 11, 2011 (11-11-11) – a number assumed to be lucky.

    Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's publicist and the Seven Hills Hospital have released a joint statement condemning the tabloid for publishing "false and fabricated news". Rejecting the article's claims of an 11-11-11 delivery, Aishwarya's spokesperson accused the media of permanently damaging the family's reputation. "(The report) ridiculously insinuates that such an esteemed and respected family would turn nature's course for blind sensationalised beliefs. If by the will of God and nature's turn, she does end up delivering on the date mentioned, this fictitious article will remain with her for the rest of her life. As an international icon, is this the tag she will carry for the rest of her life? This is not what she needs at this happy moment."

    Refuting the tabloid's claims that the hospital takes special precautions to ensure Aishwarya's privacy during the visits and doctors arrive at 7:30 in the morning for her check-ups, Dr Pai, head of radiology and VP, Seven Hills Hospital, said, "The report has taken me by surprise…the information and details are a figment of someone's imagination. The 7:30 am appointments and a C-Section for November 11 have no resemblance to the truth. Such stories only show the medical fraternity in bad light. Sonography is a personal procedure and is not performed in open wards; hence it would not be different for any patient; as each is entitled to their privacy."
