New Delhi, India - (ReUterus): Aishwarya Rai's husband Abhishek Bachchan has denied his wife is pregnant and poured scorn on reports in The Spoof! that she will give birth to twin girls on St Valentine's Day 2008.
"I don't know where they get their information from," Bachchan said today, "they are all rubbish! Rubbish I tell you!
"Believe me. I know. If Aishwarya was pregnant, I would be the first to know. Of that I am 100% sure. A husband is always the first to notice these things. Especially in a country like India.
"And now this story has gone round the whole nation with all 1.12 billion residents believing that Aishwarya is just covering up to avoid criticism while working on her next movie.
"Well, if she is pregnant, it must be a phantom pregnancy! Perhaps she should be starring in a remake of Ghost, ha ha?"
Ms Rai's agent has avoided wading into the dispute and fiercely denied snapping up odds of 6/4 from internet spread-betting bookies Aintgottaprayer.com on a February 14 2008 confinement.
