since Salman Khan stormed into the sets of Chalte Chalte
in 2003, the whole ordeal culminated with the untimely withdrawal of
the movie's original actress, Aishwariya Rai. Since then, Aish and
never really seen eye-to-eye. Quite obviously, Salman was successful in
approach, forcing SRK to resort in roping Rani Mukherji to star opposite
we now hear that Aish, being her charming and sociable self, is trying hard to
bury the hatchet with
Bollywood's King Khan. After all, who would want to
remain in the bad books of one of the most influential people of B-town?
SRK's celebratory bash for Karan Johar's 39th birthday, the
guests saw the unexpected entry of Aishwariya with husband Abhishek, although
pretty much past midnight. Sources claim the appearance of the star was mainly
to oblige SRK's invitation, and not just to pass on her good wishes to KJo. For
quite a while, Aish has been showing her presence (although for a few moments)
at SRK's bashes.
has it that Aishwariya is keen on renewing her friendship with Shahrukh for
reasons more than one. Aish has a limited set of choices as far as her hero's
are concerned. Quite naturally, starring opposite Salman is something she's
chosen not to do, and with Aamir being a good pal to Salman doesn't help Aish bag a
film opposite the perfectionist either. With relations with SRK also being
hostile, the diva is left with only a handful of contemporary actors or the newer generation of the film industry,
thus striving herself to get into the good books of SRK!
Here's hoping Aishwariya succeeds in her mission!
