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."
