Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of those actresses who has a worldwide fanbase. This love from the audience was the very reason why she was offered to do the Hindi voiceover of Angelina Jolie starrer Maleficent. And we have to say that she has done a marvellous job. But did you know that Aishwarya has never met Angelina Jolie!
We know it is unbelievable but it’s true. Aishwarya revealed to Pinkvilla that she has never met Angelina Jolie in person but the two divas have clocked each other during their appearance at Cannes. The actresses revealed that she, however, is a big fan of her work and would love to meet her someday.
“Have I actually met her? Actually no! I missed meeting her. I think she had come to South Africa for one of our award functions and I think it was Hum DIl De Chuke Sanam when she and Shah Rukh Khan were presenting my Best Actress award. So I missed meeting her then,” said the actress.
Aishwarya continued to tell, ” I have not had a conversation with Angelina but we have just kind of clocked each other in Cannes when she had come to promote her film Kung Fu Panda with her team. It was nice seeing her at that time and acknowledging her work as an audience but no great conversation to talk about.”
She further praised Angelina Jolie’s work and said that she has done a wonderful job with the way she had brought Malaficient alive. Aishwarya even expressed her wish to meet her someday.
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen in Ponniyin Selvan, directed by Mani Ratnam.
