As per a report published in Filmibeat, Abhishek parted ways with Karisma as she wanted him to live separately from his parents.
“Abhishek is way too close to his parents to even think about moving out. When he was engaged to Karisma Kapoor in 2002, the relationship came apart mainly because she wanted him to move out of his parents’ home and live separately after marriage,” a source was quoted as saying.
Post his break up with Karisma, Abhishek went on to marry Aishwarya in 2007 and it is reported that it was Rai's affinity to her parents that drew junior Bachchan towards her.
