Rumours have always been rife that things have turned sour between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan. However, both stars make sure to shush the rumours with their family gathering and outings. Now, the latest buzz suggests that Amitabh Bachchan has left Aishwarya Rai Bachchan all disappointed and this actor is to be blamed! Wondering why and who's the actor? He's none other than Emraan Hashmi!
It's known to all that in the past, Emraan Hashmi had offended Aishwarya Rai by calling her plastic and fake on the chat show of Karan Johar's, Koffee With Karan.
Ever since Emraan took a dig at her, he landed in the bad books of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and owing to the same reason, she had also rejected a movie opposite him. The movie was none other than Badshaaho.
Not so long ago, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was interviewed by Jitesh Pillai for his show, Famously Filmfare. During a rapid-fire round, Aishwarya was asked about the worst comment she ever heard about herself, to which she said, "Fake and plastic."
The statement was made in jest and it's all for the hamper. I am a big fan of Aishwarya Rai and if I meet her I will definitely apologise because there was nothing personal (to it).''
"Karan just nudges you and makes you say these things. To win a hamper makes you greedy and makes you do such foolish things. I have no idea whether she refused the film because of my statement - that only the makers and people who approached her know."
"Lot of actors are approached for a role. I haven't had the chance to meet her. She would have forgotten this incident but obviously she was reminded of it because of articles in newspapers."
When asked about Aishwarya's jibe, he said, "She didn't say that it's my comment. She had just said that this comment is the worst. In the profile of the show, you have to be a bit controversial and funny.
That is to win the hamper. I'm sure she is not speaking about me. But if she is, then I have said it in other interviews as well that I have an immense respect for her. I think she is a very good artist."
