You just canâ€™t miss it â€” the sparkling ring that Ash flaunted when she hugged pa-in-law-to-be Amitabh Bachchan outside Lilavati Hospital.
The newly engaged couple went to the hospital along with Big B to seek blessings of the ailing Teji Bachchan.
This is the rock that Abhishek slipped onto Ashâ€™s finger during the engagement ceremony â€” a humongous rock that will now put Sushmita Senâ€™s famous diamonds to shame!
Sources say that Tina Ambani, a close friend of the Bachchans, selected the solitaire on behalf of the Bachchans from a jewellery store in Breach Candy.
Apparently, Tina visited the store just days before the engagement and told the staff that she was buying the diamond ring â€œfor someone elseâ€.
The size apart, the price is quite a whopper too. A jeweller pegs the ring at over Rs 50 lakh.
Says a source close to the Bachchans, â€œEveryone in the Bachchan family knew that the engagement would happen in the first month of 2007, so the ring was obviously decided upon a while ago.
The engagement was imminent and the Bachchans were only waiting for the perfect time to make a declaration. Guruâ€™s release couldnâ€™t have been more perfectly timed.â€
