Not very long ago, if you remember, it was during the dreaded rapid fire round of Koffee With Karan, when Emraan Hashmi and Mahesh Bhatt came on the show as Karan Johar’s guests, was Emraan asked who according to him was plastic in Bollywood. To which the actor immediately replied, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Now, Emraan is on a promotional spree for his upcoming film Raja Natwarlal, and during an interview with NDTV, the actor was asked about his “plastic” comment. He replied saying he has always been a big fan of Mrs Bachchan, so much so that he has watch ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ five times, despite not being a Hindi film fan.
He also thinks, Aishwarya is extremely beautiful and that it was the greed to win the coffee hamper that made him call her plastic. He said: “When you have someone as smug as Mahesh Bhatt sitting next to you, with a smile on his face thinking he’s going to win it…sometimes you go to show him who is boss”.
Damage control we may say, or publicity stunt it is?
Well, maybe he said it for the hamper, maybe he said it to get a reaction out of people (which worked), maybe he genuinely believes it. Either way this all happened a long time ago so why bring it up again? Pretty sure we have all gotten over it, including Mrs Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. You move on too, Emraan.
