Mumbai - (Ass Mess): A frenzy of betting has begun on the likely names that Bollywood megastars Aishwarya Rai and husband Abhishek Bachchan are likely to give their twin daughters that are said to be already on their way for a late January/early February 2008 birth.
Top of the betting are Ashwina ('Child of the Star') and Abhilasha ('Wish'/'Desire') both placed at 5/2 FAV.
Next at 4/1 are Suchita ('Auspicious') and Sunaina ('Beautiful Eyes').
And current third favorites aat 5/1 are Lalima ('Beautiful') and Lalita (''Beautiful woman').
Mumbai bookmakers are said to be taking no chances on waiting for the official announcement of Aishwarya's much anticipated pregnancy amid what has been described as 'a wall of money' that has already been wagered on the rumored twin girls' arrival.
"Some India bookies completely missed the plot for the Bachchan wedding dates," an industry source said today.
"This time we're not going to be caught on the hop!"
