Footage and pictures of actor Abhishek Bachchan summoning a photographer to his car outside designer Manish Malhotra's residence in Mumbai has gone viral. The moment was brief, barely a nanosecond, but has made headlines because Abhishek is believed to have been checking the lensman's camera for allegedly inappropriate pictures of his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Ash, who had just exited a dinner party hosted by Manish Malhotra, got into the front seat of the car - Abhishek was driving - and her short denim shift appeared to have ridden up a little in what tabloid parlance calls an 'oops moment.' Abhishek then gestured to a photographer to come over, checked his camera and then, satisfied that there would be no embarrassing pictures of Aishwarya, folded his hands to the assembled press, signalling for them to clear the way for the car.

Footage from outside Manish Malhotra's home - watch till the end.
To see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a breezy, casual minidress is a rare treat - more often than not, she's swathed head to toe in designer yardage. And anybody who's ever had to get in or out of a car while holding a hemline in place will relate to why she wanted to ensure cameras had seen no more than intended. Here's a good picture of Aishwarya in her denim dress:
It's also rare to see Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan just kicking back at a midweek do. Here's a photo from inside the dinner party - guests included Karan Johar:
Both the Bachchans guard their privacy fiercely. Abhishek has reproached trolls for comments about his wife and daughter Aaradhya. Aishwarya has encountered aggressive paparazzi on at least one known instance, when her mother Vrinda fell in the crush of cameras at Mumbai airport.
Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan, co-star of films such as Guru and Raavan, married in 2007. Aaradhya, now 5, was born in 2011.
Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in Housefull 3. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starred in 2016's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and is currently filming Fanney Khan.
