Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, recently launched the first trailer of her upcoming film Sarbjit. At the event, she revealed that she did not meet Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur, before shooting the film.
"We (Dalbir and I) don't look the same but Omung Kumar (director) was clear he wanted me to do it. We had Dalbirji on board, for referencing of her role we had media which had documented things about her... So we took that to gauge mannerisms. I have not spent time with her before shooting for the film,'' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan told.

The beautiful actress further added, ''I did not meet her in advance. When I am playing real life characters it is important for me to stay true to director's vision and narrative. I have not sat and watched everything of hers but I have stayed true. The lady who has gone through hardships for 23 years either can lose weight or go other way round, Dalbirji has a mole and we have kept that."

"We all are familiar with what happened, we do get affected and disturbed but we don't necessarily take a minute to experience it. It is about how an incident can change the dynamics of a family.''
''Dalbir fought for over 23 years for her brother's release. This kind of sibling love is rare. It is commendable spirit. This story needed to be told. As actors we wait for opportunities to essay a character in its entirety. It is important to become a character and I always do that... It is important for me," Aishwarya said.
