Royal Treatment for Abhi-Ash

We aren't sure whether tennis player Roger Federer knew of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai until a few days ago. But he certainly became aware of them, and their star status, on July 18.

The story goes that Federer, who is in Toronto for the on-going Rogers Cup, arrived at Hilton Toronto on July 18, expecting to be given his favourite suite, unofficially known as the 'Federer Suite'. To date, he has always been given the suite.

But to his surprise, he discovered that his suite had been allotted to Bollywood stars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai who were also in Toronto for The Unforgettable tour.

Abhishek and Aishwarya had checked into Hilton Toronto on July 16. Says a source from Wizcraft International, organiser of The Unforgettable tour, "The local promoter, Moe Jiwan, insisted that Abhishek and Aishwarya be given Roger Federer's suite. Naturally, Hilton Toronto officials told him that it was reserved for Federer.But Jiwan insisted and finally the Hilton Toronto officials relented."

Meanwhile, Federer arrived at Hilton Toronto on July 18. He was disappointed to find his suite occupied and tried to argue with the hotel authorities about getting it, but his efforts went in vain. The hotel authorities politely refused to give him his favourite suite.

Aishwarya and Abhishek stayed in Hilton Toronto till July 19. Federer had to stay in another suite until then.

We called the Hilton Toronto, to check out the story. Sheren, assistant manager, Hilton Toronto, said "Yes, Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan were staying with us from July 16. They've checked out now. We cannot reveal which suite they were staying in. And we cannot say anything about Roger Federer either, since he's a big celebrity. These are private details and we don't wish to speak about them."

However, Sabbas Joseph, director, Wizcraft International, confirmed the news and said, "Yes. We are happy that Abhishek and Aishwarya were given the suite, which Federer usually stays in. They had a very comfortable stay in Hilton Toronto."
