In a controversial twist, Bollywood's first family said Saturday they would boycott the industry's top awards ceremony because of a row with a tabloid newspaper.
Screen legend Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek both said they would not attend the Filmfare Awards Saturday evening after the Mumbai Mirror published a story about Abhishek's wife, actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog overnight Friday-Saturday that the family had not received a public apology from the newspaper for alleging earlier this month that Rai could not have children. A legal notice had been sent demanding a retraction and apology, he added.
