Imagine a show hosted by Amitabh Bachchan and featuring the star
cast of Action Replayy. You'd expect Aishwarya Bachchan to
be a part of it, right? But Aishwarya, who teams up with Akshay
Kumar in Action Replayy, was absent for the Kaun Banega Crorepati
(KBC) - Action Replayy episode.
The cast of Action Replayy, who participated on KBC,
included Akshay, Aditya Roy Kapur, Rannvijay, Vipul Shah with wife
Shefali and Neha Dhupia. So, why not Ash?
Rumours doing the rounds in the industry indicate that Aishwarya
didn't want to be a part of the episode because the proceeds would
be donated to a particular charitable trust. But Vipul Shah denies
it, "It has been decided by the family (Bachchans) that neither
Abhishek nor Aishwarya would participate in KBC.. Reason being
people would assume that the presence of Bachchan Sr. as the host
prompted them to win the booty. That's why Aishwarya didn't
participate for that particular episode."
