Big B emphasises that he will not sell his granddaughter's picture to any media organisation
Buzz is that two premier international magazines have approached the Bachchan family with Rs 5 crore in return of exclusive pictures of Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's baby, born on November 16. This comes four years after international magazines offered the star couple a good number of crores to share their wedding photographs.

Not surprisingly pa-in-law, Amitabh Bachchan maintains that he'll never sell his grand-daughter's pictures to any media organisation. From the time Aishwarya was admitted to hospital, a section of the media had been trying to pull strings to acquire exclusive pictures of the baby girl.
However, when the mother and the baby were discharged from the hospital, no one had been able to get any pictures of the newborn child. And naturally, that has boosted the curiosity among celebrity watchers.
"More so as she's been described by her grandfather as a baby with an 'angelic face' and light-hued, beautiful eyes, just like her actress-mother, Aishwarya. Not to forget the morphed photographs of Aishwarya and her baby floating around on the Internet," points out a source. However, the family has decided not to release any photographs, citing 'personal reasons'.
Also, upset by the circulation of morphed pictures of Aishwarya and her daughter on the web, the Bachchan family reportedly traced the original picture that had been photoshopped. As Big B himself tweeted recently, "To those that clamour for the baby's picture, I have said it before, it will not be happening. Do understand, it's personal."
