Did you know, Aishwarya Rai was offered a role opposite Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt in the 2004’s Hollywood blockbuster Troy? But, Ash declined the offer. However, Brad Pitt wasn’t dejected and he still has hopes of working with the gorgeous Indian beauty some day. What’s interesting is that the Hollywood star is even open to working with her in a Bollywood flick, and he doesn’t mind being a part of an item song or dance sequence!
If Ash would have accepted Troy, she would play Rose Byrne’s role – the priestess of Apollo and lover of of Brad Pitt’s character, Achilles.
Just imagine their awesome pair…. World’s most beautiful woman, paired with the world’s hunkiest actor. WAOW!
Pitt, 48, told IANS in an email interview that is does have an idea of Bollywood films and that he doesn’t mind working in one.
“Indian cinema seems to be growing very well at its own pace. I would love to work in a Bollywood film as there is so much drama and color in the films there,” said Pitt.
“The filmmaking, I hear, has evolved a lot in India and of late we have witnessed some good films making a presence at the Oscars and the world stage,” added the actor.
“That tells you a lot about the quality of the actors and the films. You never know when I might decide to work in a Bollywood film and do one of those dance numbers with the whole crew in the backdrop,” Pitt wrote.
However, one actress that tops his list is Aishwarya Rai. Pitt finds her very stylish, beautiful and talented.
“Given a chance, I would like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan because she’s a versatile actor. She has worked brilliantly in films like ‘The Mistress of Spices’, ‘The Last Legion’, ‘The Pink Panther 2’ and ‘Provoked’ to name a few,” said Pitt.
“She is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood, who has achieved huge acclaim in the west for her style, beauty and acting skills. I think we missed an opportunity to be cast together for the movie ‘Troy’,” he added.
Aishwarya is truly an international star!
