Aishwarya Rai & Shahrukh Khan - Friendship turned sour

Aishwarya Rai & Shahrukh Khan -  Friendship turned sour 0
Aishwarya Rai & Shahrukh Khan -  Friendship turned sour 0

Do you guys remember the interview from February this year where Aishwarya said the following?

Vishal (Bhardwaj) came to me with two scripts. I liked one but he wanted to make the other first, which I wasn’t very keen on. That’s when I backed out.

Please tell me which actor in their right mind would say no to THE Vishal Bhardwaj? Even his flops are milestones in actors' careers. So I was puzzled with what made her back out from both the films just because she wasn't keen on one film. Then I came to know that the film he was making first was based on a book called Two States written by Chetan Bhagat. The story revolves around how two people, one from Delhi and one from Tamil Nadu, meet and fall in love. Aishwarya could've been the best choice considering she herself is a South Indian and speaks Tamil fluently. It still didn't strike me as to why she would turn down an author-backed role in a Vishal Bhardwaj film.

Then came the announcement that the lead actor of the film would be Shah Rukh Khan. Then it struck me why Ash turned down the film and suddenly it made a lot of sense.

I think the fact that Shahrukh threw her away from Chalte Chalte and four other films without any explanation hurt her a lot. That move of his would have ruined any other actress' career. But Aishwarya survived it and came back strongly. Please watch this excellent short snippet from her interview with Simi Garewal where she speaks about it. And this was before Shahrukh apologized to Aishwarya for what he did that day.

Shahrukh did apologize to her, but the apology came 6-7 years after the damage had been done. What surprises me (not) is that it came within months after Shahrukh had a spat with Salman. (If you remember, Salman caused ruckus on Chalte Chalte's sets, crashed Ash's car and made it impossible for the shoot to take place. That's when SRK took Salman's side and kicked Ash out of the film without any explanation, and Rani ditched Ash's friendship and took up the same project and rubbed salt on Ash's wound). So, since SRK was not on friendly terms with Salman anymore, he switched sides and apologized to Ash.

Today, she is civil with Shahrukh in public events and other parties, but I think that is the dutiful Bachchan Bahu that is playing her part well, not the Ash we know. Abhishek is friends with SRK and I guess she doesn't want to spoil anything between them, hence she doesn't think much about attending his parties. But one thing that is crystal clear is that she is in no mood to act with him ever again.

It is kind of sad because Aishwarya and Shahrukh had amazing chemistry whether as a brother and sister or lovers or an item song couple. Also, a 100% hit history with films like - Devdas, Mohabbatein and Josh. Or even the superhit item song Ishq Kameena.

After reading every thing below I have begun to understand the kind of person Salman is, he is one arrogant and self absorbed id...t. A wicked person.

He made Aish lose all these wonderful projects but am trying to figure out one thing, how much influence does SRK have over Yash Chopra becuase Veer-Zara was a yashraj movie, then Mangal Pandey which was an Amir Khan movie too but I don't get how SRK can have so much influence over all these film makers.

Something is not true here, I think what happened was a snow ball effect, when word got round that Salman was disrupting Aish's life to as much coming to the set to cause her problems. SRK dropped her, to go and sort out her personal problems. Then the news must have gotten round and every one started shying away from her.

I read some where that she had to marry a banana tree because she is manglik, she does have an aura of bad luck around her, Salman lost his head over her, SRK became enemies of the Bachchans because of her, her problems with Salman almost stalled a movie, then Abhishek's career is just questionable after marrying her, let's hope Aamir does not over shadow him in Dhoom 3 like Hrithik did.

Some tout her as being very smart ,but she started dating Salman after knowing he was trouble, their association helped her visiblity though, then she hopped on Viviek who was more or less a lap dog he was following her around like a puppy and she dumped him after he made a fool of himself one time too many. But some how it is good how Salman was exposed by Viviek, he is an ass***le, imagine harrasing someone over the phone by making 42 calls because of a woman.

Viviek should stop apologising, that is what one gets from a high school drop out who ended up a movie star in a third world nation. Salman is not a reasonable man, he has court cases pending every where he will eventually end up in jail like Sanjay, there is something called law of Karma.

Lucky for her she ended up with Abhishek, her other men have been drama queens or should I say kings.

Hope she retires very soon she is not much of an actress, only very beautiful.

PV please post.

Anonymous's picture

Ash is very smart in the way she talks. Cos Vishal did not offer her both films he had just spoken to her about both which happens in bollywood all the time. He must have just said, I have 2 scripts, i think u suit 'Project A' but I want to make 'Project B' first (obviously with someone else). Ash being Ash, knows very will how to twist and turn things to her advantage and grab credit for everything. she will just say "yeah i am not too keen on 'Proj B' anyways" to enable her to make statements like the above later on. She says "That’s when I backed out" - it means the project offered to me was not good, the other one was good...thats why I backed out.

In any case she has NO AWKAAD to refuse SRK. I can't understand why Ash fans lap up ALL THE LIES she feeds them. BY NOW ITS VERY CLEAR ASHWARYA IS THE BIGGEST LIER BOLLYWOOD HAS EVER PRODUCED. Post it Pinkvilla if u are fair.

^^Please tell how did she 'use' Vivek? If you say she encouraged him to give that press conference, you're wrong because on Farah's show Vivek himself said he was called immature by her for calling that press conference. Because Ash knew it would kill his career and she was right in calling him immature because it did kill his career eventually.

@ 6-15.3:03... Looked after him in what way? I have SRK's biography written by Anupama Chopra and this has not been mentioned at all...

RoopKiRani's picture

The post below...was GREAT!!!!!! That's exactly my point. Every1 always tries to be like 'Poor Aish' but she's no better either. She dropped Vivek like a hot potato and never stayed by him esp considering he stood up for her. His career was over because of what he did for her!!! There's a reason why people never stood up to Salman...it's because he will end up ruining their career. That's why SRK's safer option was to drop Ash instead of dealing with Salman. Ash is no better...she just wants people so sympathize with her all the time.

Anonymous's picture

ash was dropped because of the ruckus salman created on the sets. she didn't call him there. he invited himself there after he overheard on the phone where she was. he had the habit of doing that frequently and he would also accuse ash of having affairs with her co-stars etc. as a business decision srk dropped ash from chalte chalte and perhaps because of salman's accusations and what not he didn't want her around his other films either. ash did not create trouble herself nor was salman's behavior under her control. hence the unfairness of the decision. but she was the reason why salman was coming on the sets so in order to stop the damage srk had to take such a decision. it was ruthless, taken from a business point of view. what is interesting is that how come no one tried to stop salman? how come no one supported a woman who was being harassed? how come srk did not even try to negotiate with ash? actors come late on sets, fall sick do all kinds of unprofessional things. but they don't just get kicked out. here ash got kicked out for someone else's behavior! that too out of not one, not two....but FOUR films! how is that fair? of course she has every right to be angry. it is remarkable that she survived anyway. it was not her fault!
that said, ash herself is ruthless and selfish. she totally used vivek oberoi and then dumped him when the industry turned against him and ingratiated herself with the bachchans.

Who to cast is solely the prerogative of the producer and director. if her personal life was unstable and there were high risk of shooting delay, who would cast her. Only who thinks she worth the risk. And SRK didn't think so.

She is free to whine about it but it's unfair to blame on SRK. He just took his prerogative as a producer. She was not good enough to take risk for him. She was the loser, blaming him made her even more so

Anonymous's picture

Shah Rukh is almost insanely loyal person. When he came to Mumbaii, Salman's family looked after him. So he feels obligation. Like every time Madz comes back to India, he rushes to greet her. He does so because he thinks he owes her some of his success.

So, it's natural for him to choose Salman over Aishwariya when they had trouble. Eventhough how Salman break in to the set beats up the girl. SRK had to kick Aishwalia out instead of stopping Salman and lmake him l
eave. Now, he has spat with him so it's OK for him to reunite with Aishwariya.

@RoopKiRani, You just didn't get the point. She would KNOW (the reason) and UNDERSTAND if she was dropped from a Salman film, because obviously they both had issues. SRK was her friend. She was dropped from 5 of SRK's films (she had even shot for Chalte Chalte for a few weeks), so how could she answer the question WHY? Also, how are you so sure they "spoke over the phone"?

"She always acts like the innocent angel" - Can you point out Aishwarya's mistakes in this case and contradict her claims?

I just watched the interview with Simi Garawel where Ash discussed how she was dropped out of those movies. I am sure she was upset and she KNEW why she was dropped. So, her pretending to act like "Oh, I don't like to ask WHY?" Okay, if you already knew the answer, why would you ask. I'll be surprised if she never spoke to SRK after he had a hand in kicking her out of those movies, I'm sure they spoke over the phone and probably ended on a bad note and then she didn't try to reason afterwards because it was obviously wrong of SRK to do what he did. She always acts like the innocent angel and how she rose above it. She never addressed why SRK made the effort to take her out of those movies, she's acting like it just happened out of no where. Something similar happened on the sets of Kuch Naa Kaho as well. I'm sure it was hard on her but she should really be less fake and talk properly, she likes to get to the point by beating around the bush. Oh and the only reason she began to sign movies in Hollywood is because she didn't have much movies to sign in Hollywood. I don't know why people always thought it was cool of Aishwarya to sign movies in Hollywood, this only happens when people get less work in Bollywood and they have no option but to sign movies outside *cough* like Malaika Sherawat. This is one of the main reasons, I don't like Ash. She always pretends to be the innocent one out of a fight. You know what they say 'Taali ek haath se nahi bajti'

@ i read in filmfare or some other magazine when this incident on the sets of chalte chalte happened that Gauri forced shahrukh to walk out of all the projects involving aishwarya because aishwarya was sucking up to shahrukh

Really strange, because out of all the heroines, she is the only one who hasn't sucked up to SRK, or any of the Khans. If you see interviews even before the cc incident, all heriones,-juhi, rani, preeti, kareena would be giving statements that srk is so nice, very friendly, how he is the best co-star, and so on and on. Only I haven't seen any earlier interview of Ash where she is praising SRK. Even now, Anuskha, vidya, asin,katrina, priyanka everyone goes gaga over him. She is the only one who refused to perform with SRK in filmfare functions.

Also strange that gauri was insecure of ash when there wasn't anything brewing between her and SRK, but she isn't insecure of priyanka who is like a shadow to SRK nowadays

@Fri, 2011-06-10 05:24 — Anonymous..i guess you are one crazy person..

I also watched that episode hosted by Farah Khan. And although vivek did say " those days I was working on somebody's "Rai", " , he also said he never got appreciation for what he did, and was called immature by Aish for what he had done. Also he says that it was a overnight decision, he was getting abusive calls from Salman for past few days, and he thought that enough is enough, and made that decision in haste. He himself admitted that whatever he did was wrong, and should have consulted his Dad who was out of town that day.
So, it clearly evident, that whatever he did, he did for Ash, but she never supported it. He was actually immature. Aish was facing the same threatening calls , bullying , and torture to her family even for a longer time than Vivek. She never spoke to the press , instead her family filed a FIR against Salman , and she deployed Bodyguards later on.
If suppose anyone is actually bullying you, what would you do? Register a case against him in police, and seek protection ? OR, Will you go to the press and tell them that XYZ is bullying me, so that they can add mirch masala to the news and make it a headline? Only political parties do that kind of stuff to their opponents. Any sensible person would not spill out his personal matters in the public. Although whatever happened to was unfortunate, but he was stupid enough to do it in first place

Call Gauri insecure but aishwarya is beautiful and wanted to associate herself with a superstar to get to top and any man would fall for her.. The decision to sack aishwarya came from the makers of the 4or 5 movies since they didnt want to loose shahrukh.. this is other way to look at the story.. anyone who thinks this is biased i say the above post is biased too..

this is true and not many people know this that ash was more that a friend to SRK and thats why he went around insisting producers to sign her with him in every film..veer zara,ashoka and it also made salman insecure just like gauri...the media didnt pay much attention to this and wrote more about rani/ash and salman/ash story...and the real deal was ignored that made salman furious and insisted SRK to kick her out of the movie.

@Take the example of Amitabh/Srk/Aamir/Rani..they dont need tailor made role to showcase their talent. Even the most pathetic films have seen stellar performances from these

Really? Have you seen their pathetic movies? The list is long, and performances are laughable- Rani- Badal, Hello Brother,Bichoo, Had Kar dei aapne,Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat, Mehndi,Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Pyaar Dewaana Hota Hai. Before she got started getting tailor made roles from Yashraj camp in 2003-04 , all she was doing was gyrating with Govinda, and showing her thunder thighs.

Aamir had done performances which he himself would be embarrassed of,-love love love, awwal number, tum mere ho,parampara, baazi,aatank hi aatank, mela, jawani zindabad, holi and Amitabh- Suryavansham, Lal badshaah, mritudata, major sahab, hindustan kji kasam, indrajeet, ajooba, khuda gawah.

Every actor/actress needs tailor made roles to bring out the best performance from them. Ash on the other hand (apart form movies like Albela and Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin), has pretty decent performances in most of her films, and outstanding performances in others

Aishwarya should realize her career, or for that matter any woman's career is ruled by men. So she should stop being lame and start acting with Khans. Women are nothing without men and that's the rude truth. And I'm a woman myself and I'm telling this from my personal experience.

Anon if you read my comment here you will find that i have mentioned that there are exceptions where she has been in demand not for her beauty but for her skills. She has done good movies but they are few and far between. She has excelled only in off-beat kinda roles which isnt the mark of a great actor. Take the example of Amitabh/Srk/Aamir/Rani..they dont need tailor made role to showcase their talent. Even the most pathetic films have seen stellar performances from these. Yes ofcourse she has survived in the industry for long...but this deification by her fans is just too much. Even madhuri/manisha koirala/juhi chawla made it big without any help. And Ash is no saint. People tend to use this particular ash-srk clash to glorify her and rebuke srk which is so uncalled for. Such things have happened to many stars before so why this sudden lashing out at srk?? I am a fan of his and i know the decision he took was from a business point of view and not a personal one. How the hell could he have "sabotaged" her career when he himself doesnt have too many friends in the industry??Being a star that he is there was no need to apologize in the first place but he did. why can't you appreciate that? After all being late is better than never.

@BOLLYWOOD: I've been on PV for years now and I have followed your comments for long. You've even admitted you don't like Ash much but have praised her always, i.e., when you said she has the most versatile body of work or that she is the most talented actress in Bollywood after Priyanka and that she is the most beautiful actress and all. So it has come like a rude shock to me that you suddenly changed your perspective and calling her names. I remember you praised Ash that she has survived in the industry without taking the help of a single Khan for so many years and yet was capable of staying at the top, which other actresses have been incapable of. And you praised Ash for the same thing. So now suddenly you're taking Shahrukh's side, which cannot be digested by me. I just want to ask you one thing, what made you change your perspective all of a sudden? (I can still search for you the post where you praised Ash's beauty, talent and guts).

Yes i know what jaya said and i also know in what context. Dont miss the line she said before that. She said she is alike a mother to srk and if he ever crosses the line she would slap him. Thats quite a strong bond if you ask me. But alas..i know how you will interpret it.
aaaaaaahhhh!! the good old awards..they are so important when it comes to Ash...but i bet you will be the one shouting from top of your roof calling them foul when Srk gets one..so just shut the F*** up dear. She is certainly one of the most pathetic actors i have ever seen. yes those bimbos you mention are more tolerable than ash's horrid giggles!

BOLLYWOOD's picture

I have to check the pinkvilla archives to pull out that particular video where she said SRK had tried to apologize before.
and pray explain the meaning of changing sides???? SRK was always on Bachchan's "SIDE" unless ofcourse you chose to believe the media reports of their fall out.
Before the Sallu-Srk scene the Amir-Sallu friendship was never talked of..but the moment it happened Sallu jumped on Aamir's side who is obviously not srk's best friend..thats being a chameleon too. Well if you are neutral you will see that too!!
Anyway this topic is way too old and redundant.
Ash's market value is way too high for directors to reach..thats why she has only one project in hand. She is beautiful no doubt...and thats precisely why directors have wanted to work with her...coz in bollywood looks matter more than talent...there are of course exceptions!

SRK has no popularity in the WEST??? with due respect Schmuck i think ill just end the conversation here. hahahahaha..i know where you have come from. And Ash's so called "foren" films are not hollywood stuff..they are at best cross-over films. Frieda pinto, going by your standards, then is more recognized than her!!!!

Schmuck's picture

@BOLLYWOOD - You're pretty much confused. "it was not the first time he had apologized as Aishwarya herself has confirmed in her interviews" - No way. He only apologized to her 7 years after the incident. Can you tell me when Ash 'confirmed' it that he apologized to her before all these years? NEVER.

"One the other hand what abt aamir and sallu?? where was their glorious FRIENDSHIP before the sallu-srk fall off??? In that case they are double faced too." - Well, Aamir or Salman didn't change colors with changing circumstances. As unthinkable said, he switched sides like a chameleon immediately after his fall-out with Salman. That's why unthinkable called Srk double-faced and it is evident so I agree.

And Ash has 0 market value? Her market value is probably higher than any other actress. That's exactly why she is the highest paid actress. The fact that A-list directors offer her movies shows the belief and faith they have in her acting skills. She has delievered several knock-out performances and even got praised by critics in her flops too - mark of a true great actor. If you are neutral and not biased you'll observe it too.

how convenient ash!!! she keeps a "dignified" silence when there are rumours of hollywood film offers which never seem to materialize by the way. yet when her image is at stake like when she is dropped from brands or movies then she comes and "clarifies". at first she denied her entire relationship with Salman. when rumours of her being abused went around she played the whole "i am miss world, powerful independent, why would i tolerate abuse?" but when she began to lose films she went around playing the victim and all of a sudden stories of how salman abused her etc. began pouring out. first she denied all her relationships saying she doesn't talk about her "personal life" but now that she is a bachchan bahu we have to see their forced PDA all the time. what happened to her "personal life"? out of the bedroom now? so for all of ash's talk about her "dignified silence" and not "planting stories"......well don't we smell a hypocrite here?

sure, being dropped from chalte chalte and other films for no Direct fault of hers without explanation and was very unfair. SRK is a shrewd businessman and didn't want any hassles. he had his reasons but her anger is justified completely. however, he has apologized, perhaps to keep the peace between him and the bachchan family as a political move. she has also accepted, again to keep the peace. they don't have to work together if they don't want to. they are both big stars who don't need each other. yet, ash's career is on the decline now. given that, as a woman, her shelf life is shorter in bollywood she probably does not have much choice at this point even though she has managed to extend her career pretty long. SRK can still keep going strong. note that she has mostly delivered flops whereas SRK has a more consistent record. so her refusing to work with him is hardly going to affect his career. between the two of them SRK has the upper hand no matter how "powerful" ash is as an actress. it is a man's world, this bollywood. btw, how do you know SRK wasn't the one who refused to work with HER? he is even more powerful!! besides it was probably the script or money and not co-actors that changed the decision. anyway, both are too old to star in this movie and bad actors too. esp. ash will be a misfit and besides she has a history of choosing bad scripts and having her movies flop anyway. so NO ONE CARES if she doesn't do this film.

lastly, why do ash fans go on and on about how ash was wronged every single time!!!!! what about what she did to salman? she broke his heart. ok, he supposedly abused her so it is understandable but then what about vivek oberoi????? he stood by her through thick and thin but she dropped him without notice? what happened to her loyalty then? sure, he might have pissed her off but then she pissed SRK off......and amir khan and many others....so that means she deserved the treatment she got when they dropped HER! if she is all about being straight then why the hell isnt SHE straight? why is she always playing the victim? isn't that manipulative? and what's the big deal about Rani doing chalte chalte? she didn't steal the movie. she didn't get ash kicked out. it was offered to her *after* ash was dropped. much worse stuff goes on in the industry!! rani is friends with both SRK and ash and is closer to SRK. why would she refuse the film? apparently ash wasn't as mad at Preity because she had asked ash first! seriously!! why should she take PERMISSION from ash? is ash her godmother? or GOd? who the hell is ash to give permission or "allow" others to do what is not meant for her.??????? does she OWN the film because she signed it first? rani has never said a bad word about ash or anything like that. the truth is that ash couldn't stand that Rani benefitted from her loss. it hurt her because they were friends! but being friends doesn't mean you can't do the others' movies!? what about ash being a good friend and being happy for Rani? it goes both ways dude. ash is a one way street. double standards always.

@Anchal - He was only trying to help? Please tell me how he was trying to help. By kicking her out without giving an explanation?

@MakeupCritic - You're quite ignorant I must tell you. If you call Salman's behaviour her misdemeanour then god help you.

Thu, 2011-06-09 13:25 — Anonymous "dont forget that it was SRK who got her fame and attention from the west." - Haha really? He himself doesn't have fame or attention in the west. Then how did he get her fame? Did he get her films like Bride and Prejudice, Provoked, Pink Panther? Got her on shows like Oprah, Letterman? Hahaha.

Thu, 2011-06-09 10:53 — BOLLYWOOD - You are an SRK and Rani fan (a glimpse at your profile says that), so what you say about Ash is totally biased and laughable.

There has always been an uncomfortable equation of SRK with Big B and Jaya. In an interview Jaya said she would even slap SRK if he would cross the line.

Are you saying SRK apologized to Ash BECAUSE she is in the family? Not because he is ashamed of himself for making that mistake? Haaha. There itself you tell what SRK had in mind. Thank you.

And when did he apologize to Ash? he apologized to her the first time in 2008, 6 years after the damage had happened, that too after he was no more friends with salman. Tells about his chamleon nature.

"On a lighter tone..i wish all the director had kicked Ash off their projects..it would have saved us the horror of hearing her giggle in films and tolerating her pathetic acting skills..HAHAHAAHHA..sorry! just couldnt resist" -- Unfortunately, she is one of the best actresses in the country and her so-called pathetic acting skills got her a lot of awards and critical acclaim. May be your favourite is Katrina, Deepika or Kareena or Sonam or one of those untalented bimbos. At least ASH has more hits and awards than any of these.

Haha... some people saying SRK doing this to Ash is OKAY because she did the same to Vivek. What did she do to Vivek?

People very well know it was Salman who destroyed Vivek's career. And Salman did that to take revenge on the press conference Vivek gave against Salman. Did Ash ask him to give that press con? Nope. Vivek clearly said in his interview with Farah Khan that he was called a "fool" and "immature" for doing the press con. Ash called him like that because she knew Salman would seek revenge on him, as she already has had experience with him. Salman RUINED Vivek's career as Ash feared. Now what is Ash's fault in this?

*aishwarya is the epitome of grace she has a large heart n forgave srk when he apologized*she never needed anyone's help* i think that is what her makes her special she does not let people demean her for a role * she does the right thing* that is why her fans love her very much*

@Schmuck
What is the point of bringing up this post when it has been already discussed a million times? The past is not going to change if we keep on bringing it up again and again, so Let us not dig up it

And I don't think she denied the role because Shahrukh was starring in it, but because it was not a substantial role to justify her presence and talent. Read the book 2 states , and you will understand why

Sujata's picture

He tried to sabotage her career but didn't succeed. Yet, Ash with her big heart did forgive him after his apology. He should be fortunate that she is at least on talking terms with him. But then she does know how to keep such people at bay. She has had one bad experience with him. She doesn't need more, so she drew a line about not acting with him. She's better off without him.

Both are self-made superstars. But one difference is, she doesn't manipulate people like he does.

I'm a SRK fan, but I do think he had an opportunity here to step in on Ash's behalf, and failed. He decided to prioritize his professional life over his personal friendship. (Back in the day, SRK and Ash were good friends) Perhaps with the apology and the time that has passed, they'll be in a film together. They are basically our two biggest stars. Plus, they can bond over how much Salman Khan sucks...

Actually Ash recently attended a party at Shah Rukh's place so I am sorry the article has wrongly stated that she does not attend parties at his house.

Where did I say that what SRK did was right to Aishwarya? Please stop putting words in my mouth and calm the hell down. What happened to Aishwarya happens to many people in the world and that's just how people at work have to deal with it. I never said this is fair but I was just giving an example of what SRK did was not out of the ordinary, this is just how it is dealt with in the real world. I even concluded in my post saying it's understandable that Aishwarya is mad at him. God, I love how people choose to jump at you without reading the post clearly.

I don't know how both of you, as girls can support abusiveness , harassment and torturing of women by men. I feel its a shame for any women to support it , directly or indirectly. How would you feel if same thing happened to you? You posts suggest that you find whatever happened was okay, and any women in that situation should get that treatment which Ash did from SRK

Whatever was happening between Ash and Salman was personal, but NO-BODY can be and should be made accountable for the deeds of other people. You say Ash, and RoopKiRani-your coworker was unprofessional in bringing their personal life to work. What both of you don't realize is that these ladies did not bring their ex boyfriends/husbands to work. The stormed there themselves. How could Ash control what Salman is doing? Did she call him up from the sets and ask him to come there ? Obviously NO.If he had differences with her, why couldn't he sort out in a civilized manner? Why did he choose barbarian means? Tomorrow, if anybody comes and destroys your property, the law will hold him guilty. Will the law say- he was upset with his girlfriend, so its okay that he destroyed your property, his girlfriend should be punished? NO , RIGHT. How is Ash responsible for what Salman, or anybody else in this world is doing? She should and is accountable for only her deeds, not other peoples.

Its so shameful that women always love to find women guilty? That's why women are and always will remain second class citizens to men, and will always have to bear injustice. When women can't support their sex, how do we expect the society to give us equal value.

@unthinkable....dont forget that it was SRK who got her fame and attention from the west. So its him who actually MADE her career and gave her a strong hold. And if being thrown out of a single movie means the end of a career then she should have better sat at home and made rotis. Its the film industry where relations are secondary.
Aishwarya and an independent woman?? PUHLEEEEEEEZZZZZ..she has slept her way to fame using some man or the other at each juncture. And when she ran out of options she became the Bachchan bahu which would ensure lifelong media attention.DUH
And stop deifying her people. if what SRK did was wrong, what she did to Viveik Oberoi, who stood by her during her so called tough times, was SUPER WRONG! jaisi karni waisi bharni. She is no saint and perhaps is the most cunning woman ever.

@Schmuck.....how naive can you get really!!! what tells you that these stars say the right thing in their interviews?? Ash had accused Salman of manhandling. And Salman denied it in his interviews. So whom will you believe? You were not there in person so stop being judgmental based on "FACTS" collected from the media/interviews you little reporter... lol
And secondly and MOST importantly i must put in my apology. It was indeed a mistake comparing you to pinky. It was an outright insult to her. Sorry pinky if you are reading this. Her area of interest is fashion and your is Bollywood Gossips....hahahaha...thats self-explanatory indeed. Ciao

though i think SRK was wrong im glad he didn't help her she probably would have screwed him over like vivek oberoi
salman khan is the only one who should be getting shit for the trouble he caused her
also i dont get how rani did anything so bad-it's not personal, it's just business

MakeupCritic's picture

Schmuck - I know that they were all with SRK. What relevance does that have to what I was saying?
My point still stands, she wouldnt have been kicked out of all 5 movies if it was just Salman creating a ruckus. There must be more to it, Aish shouldn't play the victim or portray herself as the innocent party in all this. She needs to be an adult and accept the fact that her own misdemeanours may have cost her the movies.

Schmuck-
what "4" can be is that ash refused coz of some other issue. you dont expect me to guess that issue do you??you dont even want to acknowledge that their is a possibility that your conclusion can be wrong. idk how its so obvious to you.
anyway, until ash/vishal speak out on why she refused i doubt i'll be convinced, which i again doubt will happen.
he shldnt have interfered in her personal matters??? he was only trying to help!!
but yes, trying to sabotage her career was a big mistake, for which he apologised and rightly so.

i have nevr said what salman did to ash was right.like i have said b4, if he did abuse her no matter to what extent its WRONG.
no, i repeat no self respecting woman will support abuse and nor do I.
idk wht @roopkiRani has said, but i dont think i have ever said ash deserved to be abused.
i said srk is at more fault in the CC episode, i never said he was innocent,.
idk abt others, but being a girl myself i dont think its always the case that women are gulity in love.i have even said anything like tht, idk why u are taking the pains to tell me all this.
i appreciate your thoughts and second most of them, but i havent spoken ill of a woman at all........

I think SRK should of been a better human being & should of helped Aishwarya when she was in trouble ,he didn't so Aishwarya finds it hard to forgive him . Many friends deserted Aishwarya during that time but the person that matters most of all did not desert her, God , God helped Aishwarya & that is why she was successful despite SRK asking her to leave his movie. To be honest she became more successful after that & got recognition from the West. So remember everyone what men means for harm God uses for good & I am happy Aishwarya went on to cement herself as queen of hearts. I believe in forgiveness though so she should forgive SRK. I luv Aishwarya <3<3<3 God bless you .

I am a big fan of aish and shahrukh but making Aish a victim in this episode is only degrading her potential as a star.. Shahrukh refused to act with her maybe he did not want to hurt his then close friend.. Would you hang out with your friend's Ex especially if she was the one who broke up with ur friend? Is it becasue Aish lost 5 superhits by not making movies with a shahrukh? She is a superstar now so why bring this episode once again? I am not sure if people would have a made such a big issue out of it if Govinda had refused to make movies with her :-)
I read in a magazine many years back when the chalte chalte incident took place that Gauri wanted Aishwarya out of the movie since she did not want any more ruckus on the sets and she wanted shahrukh to walk out of all the movies where Aishwarya was present because Salman was a very close family friend and they did not want to hurt him. Nothing wrong in that since I am sure Abishek will do the same thing by walking out of a movie if rani is latter signed for a role opposite him since his wife is not on talking terms with rani.. It is a matter of loyalty which is very common in bollywood these days..
To me it looks like the producers did not want to loose shahrukh so they had aishwarya removed which is highly possible since he was ruling the box office then.. This is one way to look at the story.. If you feel my comment is biased so is the above post.. But now all seems well between them and lets hope they act together soon..

But still it's not a valid reason to kick Aishwarya from CC! If she didn't want Srk to interfere with Salma's n Aish's mess that's her own issue and decision! Maybe she should have allowed Srk to talk to Salman but if she didn't why he had to kick her out anyways??? That's her life dude!

Oh plz people, Srk kicked Aish becoz he didn't want another dramatic scene on the sets of CC by Salman AGAIN! I agree that he shouldn't have kicked her for this, he should have took some precautions no matter if in that time he was Salman's friend! HE SHOULD HAVE ACTED WITH PROFESSIONALISM!

Whatever, I don't care. All I care is about whether they entertain me or not. SRK and Ash are good actors and big stars. What if they don't star opposite each other? There are millions of actors and actresses they can pair up with. As Ash said, why brood over it and mull over it and keep asking WHY? Just bloody move on!

BOLLYWOOD's picture

And SRk atleast had the decency to apologize! and its not that srk is running after her to make films with her..its the producers. She, with her long list of flop films and zero market value, would be the last one srk would need for a hit film :D :D :D

BOLLYWOOD's picture

Looks like we have a host of Bollywood Insiders here!!!!!
Srk has been friends with the Bachchans for a long time..their so called wars are media-created. It was only civil to apologize to Aishwarya since she was a part of the family he was close too. What double-faced attitude do you see here? And it was not the first time he had apologized as Aishwarya herself has confirmed in her interviews.
One the other hand what abt aamir and sallu?? where was their glorious FRIENDSHIP before the sallu-srk fall off??? In that case they are double faced too.
On a lighter tone..i wish all the director had kicked Ash off their projects..it would have saved us the horror of hearing her giggle in films and tolerating her pathetic acting skills..HAHAHAAHHA..sorry! just couldnt resist
