In 2009, the film Dostana having PC as its leading lady, was originally offered to Aishwarya Rai. But the Bollywood beauty declined it saying the concept of romancing a second man while her husband was on screen with her and eventually walking away with a third, did not appeal to her. In 2010 again, she refused Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se and then Abhineo Deo’s Game.
Vipul Shah’s untittled film having Abhishek Bachchan as its lead star, doesn’t have a heroin and is supposed to go on floors by end of this year. Says a source, “Vipul spoke to Aishwarya about being cast opposite Abhishek. But she thinks she can’t add anything to the project. In fact, Aishwarya suggested that Vipul cast Katrina instead.
Vipul however denies having approached Aishwarya, “So far we haven’t really discussed the project.”
If buzz is to be believed, it is said that Abhishek and Aishwarya have come to a mutual decision that the duo will star together only if a project has something interesting, exciting and novel to do. Says the source, “They don’t want to give the audience too much of themselves.”
