Declined Dostana For Abhi-John sake: Aishwarya Rai

20 11 2008
Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on Thursday said she had declined to act in ‘Dostana’, the romantic comedy with a gay angle, starring husband Abhishek Bachchan, to avoid the demand for a real life romance on screen. The former Miss World said she declined Priyanka Chopra’s part as audiences would have expected a romantic angle between the real life couple.

“The chemistry was between Abhishek and John Abraham. I did not want people to expect romance between me and Abhishek or get disappointed that I walk off with some other man in the end,” Aishwarya said on a query.

“This would have diluted the gay angle of the film,” she added.

Aishwarya, who is currently shooting for Mani Ratnam’s ‘Ravan’ with Abhishek and a Tamil film with Rajnikant outside Mumbai, was in the city to attend a promotional event of an international watch company for which she is the brand ambassador.

When quizzed about her future projects, the actress said she had signed Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film with Hrithik Roshan and is doing a film with Vipul Shah.

 Well I think Aishwarya did a good thing declining the film because she is right people would expect Abhi-Aish to be romantic. Priyanka fit better and she rocked! But I guess we can see Aishwarya with hottie Hrithik again for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s flick!
