Aishwarya Rai Bachchan replaces Katrina Kaif
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might be away from films for sometime but she is still the reining star of Bollywood and even today her bags are full of promising endorsement deals. She is not in the race of the top contenders of Bollywood but she indirectly defeated her junior contender, Katrina Kaif. Aishwarya snatched Katrina’s endorsement deal.
Recently, a big real estate company signed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as their brand ambassador by breaking their promise they made to Kat. They have verbally committed to the actress but something went wrong and they have dropped the ‘Dhoom 3’ actress from the deal.
Talking about the incident, a source told a leading daily, "Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's name was announced with great fanfare. But it was actually Katrina Kaif who had been approached first and she had even signed the dotted lines. However, the contract got stuck for some unknown reason and she was unceremoniously dropped from the project. Kat had no idea she had been replaced by Aish."
Aishwarya was recently introduced as the project’s brand ambassador amidst fanfare and media glare. Aishwarya also purchased a 4 bedroom room at the giant project worth Rs 5 crore.
Aishwarya and Katrina have many things in common. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dated Salman Khan in the past and Katrina was also romantically linked with the superstar before she bonded with Ranbir Kapoor. Aishwarya was the lead actress of YRF’s ‘Dhoom 2’ and now Katrina is featured as the lead actress of ‘Dhoom 3’.
