The Bachchans have talked about how Ash is the perfect daughter in-law and Karisma Kapoor really wasn't homely enough for them. Or it might have something to do with Ash still being considered ethereally beautiful and very much in competition despite being older and not having too many big hits.
The latest is that Kareena Kapoor hadn't really turned down a role opposite Hollywood actor Johnny Depp because of date problems. It had a lot to do with Ash.
According to a source, "Three years ago, Gurinder Chadda, who offered her this role, wanted Kareena for Bride & Prejudice. Kareena naturally presumed it was the lead. She was shocked to know the director actually wanted her to play Aishwarya's youngest sister for which the lesser known Piya Rai Choudhary was signed later. Bebo was irked at being offered the fourth lead and vowed never to work with her again. Now when a new Gurinder Chadha film was offered to Kareena she quickly said no without hesitation."
Kareena on her part has been a little diplomatic this time around. She says that she'll only take up something that's substantial. She won't go international unless it's something really big and isn't sure whether Gurinder's offer was with Johnny Depp or not as the role didn't interest her at all.
All we can say is that Kareena is rocking in B-Town her own way.
It's high time she only does her thing and stop thinking so much
about the tremendous beauty and international appeal of Aishwarya
Bachchan. After all, Ash hasn't really cared to react to her
