NEW DELHI: The nation wants an answer. What are the burning questions before India today? Will an Indian film ever win an Oscar? Did you know that Sonam Kapoor has a sister? Will Dabangg 2 be an even bigger hit Dabangg? Will India ever be a superpower? Apparently not.

The even bigger question: What has the Bachchan family named their four-month-old member, dubbed Beti B by the media? The word is that it's Aaradhya, which means venerable. While the Bachchan family refrained from commenting on the issue, the media reports suggested that Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's newborn has been named Aaradhya.

The last time Beti B was in the news, was when author Shobhaa De sparked off speculation on the name of the baby girl.

De tweeted: "Beti B to be named Abhilasha? That's a stroke of genius. Well done,parents. Abhi and Ash. Truly inspired, if true." The news was not confirmed by any one from the Bachchan clan. But it did not stop people on Twitter from sharing the news, most retweeting De's cryptic tweet which does not specifically confirm the news.

Rai gave birth to a baby girl on November 17, the first child for the former Miss World and her actor husband Abhishek Bachchan. The delivery took place at the Seven Hills Hospital in Marol, Mumbai.
