Two months after getting reprieve from Allahabad High Court in the controversial land purchase in Barabanki, Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan today laid the foundation stone of a girls college in the name of his gorgeous daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Barabanki at a function which acquired a high political profile.

Bachchan, wife Jaya Bachchan , son Abhishek Bachchan and daughter-in-law Ash alongwith Samajawadi Party leader Amar Singh and Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav attended the function in Daulatpur village in the district which coincided with SP general secretary's birthday.




After the 'bhoomi pujan', Bachchan laid the foundation stone of 'Aishwarya Bachchan girls inter college'.

Besides the glamour and glitz provided by the presence of the Bachchans, a galaxy of UNPA leaders N Chandrababu Naidu (TDP), NC patron Farooq Abdullah and INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala and actress-turned-politician Jayaprada were present on the occasion.

"I am grateful, I have been given this honour by the elders in our family," said the Bollywood diva gracing the occasion but added it would have been better if grandfather Harivansha Rai Bachchan or grandmother Teji Bachchan, her father-in-law Amitabh or mother-in-law Jaya got it before her.

Bachchan had bought land in the village with the objective of setting up an inter college.

The Allahabad High Court had about a month and half ago cleared Bachchan of all charges in the land deal and also ordered that no criminal or civil prosecution could be launched against him.

The court also accepted Bachchan's plea of giving up his claim on the gram sabha land.
