Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is back in the news. The buzz is that Sanjay Leela Bhansali might cast her for his next movie after Guzaarish. The ace director jokingly referred to the topic at the film’s first look launch in Mumbai on September 23rd. Here is what happened…

“Will Cast Aishwarya With Ranbir Kapoor”: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

At the first look launch, a particularly nosy reporter asked Aishwarya how she felt about having worked with both older actors (Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgan) and younger one’s (Hrithik Roshn) in each of Bhansali’s films. A miffed Ash replied that it didn’t matter whom she worked with as long as the director was okay with the casting. “I don’t know whether there was a question or a point he (the journalist) made. The fact is that most of the directors I worked with don’t get in to chronology, or statements, or sensationalizing casting,” Aishwarya said.

Immediately – the wonderful man that he is – Sanjay Leela Bhansali, came to Aishwarya’s rescue and clarified his position. “I would like to cast Aishwarya with Ranbir Kapoor also. Some people are timeless and it (their career) doesn’t just end with a decade ending.”

Then what? Aishwarya praised her favourite director to the hilt. “I have had the pleasure of working for Sanjay Leela Bhansali thrice but let me tell you that ‘Guzaarish’ is a beautiful piece of cinema,” she gushed. But we feel that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might just be trying a little hard this time around. Although she’ll end the year with three big releases, Raavan flopped, while her film Endhiran – The Robot with superstar Rajnikant faces stiff competition from Anjaana Anjaani, which also releases on October 1st. In ‘Guzaarish’, Aishwarya plays the love interest of Hrithik, who plays a paraplegic magician.

  1. ..(wooden) Katrina pays alot to get rubbish written about her rivals and nothing negative about her….she has mastered her PR skills…..left Salman for Ranbir nobody crucifies her though….
    Priyanka goes from Akshay to Hrithik to Shahid to Gerard to Shahid again nobody calls her a slut….but Deepika is…this is bacause they are SOUTH INDIAN women…

    one must remember south indians are also indians….if you can accept muslims…christians…and white actresses then why this prejudice against south indian girls…

    its because the industry is full of punjabis and muslims thats why…if your punjabi or muslim you will have support if not they will crucify you for eveything

    Hema..rekha…Sridevi only made it because of their fans, they wanted to see them more and more..so the industry had to hire them….

    Kareena, priyanka, sonam, katrina, can do no wrong because they are punjabi and white (they love white people as well) bot if any southie comes they will hurt them constantly…

    thats why ash is so defensive because the industry does hurt her alot its only the few people who dont care about north and south that hire her i.e. directors (Ashutosh, Sanjay leela etc) the rest hire her because they have no choice she has alot of fans….

    thats why most of the industry is trying to replace her by saying Sonam (old hag face) is the most beautiful , or katrina, or priyanka or kareena, they dont want to hire a southie (ask karan johar)

  2. Aishwarya has a right to get upset at that kind of question. How about asking these 40 something old heroes about working with 20 yr old girls as their leads. And Hrithik is the same age as Aishwarya. Idiotic media!
    And asking about Salman considering the history (abusive drunk) is just stupid and disrespectful
