Ash dazzles crowds in Dubai while shooting for soap commercial
Though Ash has not yet had any bollywood commercial film releases this year, she still remains one of the reigning queens. Even though her Hollywood film ‘Mistress of Spices’ did not do well at the box-office and though she did not receive good reviews for her performance, Ash still remains hopeful for her forthcoming films for this year. In fact the actress was recently in Dubai shooting for a soap commercial which was being directed by film director Rohan Sippy.
While shooting for the ad-film, the actress almost created a traffic jam and brought traffic to a halt on the road. The gorgeous Ash was shooting outdoors for a scene in the ad film and had to walk on the street, but just as soon as everyone realized that the pretty Miss Rai was parading around, everyone wanted to catch a glimpse of the beauty. When fans began to throng the area, Ash who could not provide autographs for everyone waved out to her fans. Unfortunately though after a while when the crowds seemed to grow, the road had to be cordoned off for a while till the beautiful Miss Rai left. This posed as an inconvenience to many people who could not use that particular road, however most of her fans did not really mind the inconvenience.
Ash confirms that she has just shot a commercial in Dubai and says “Rohan and I have been friends for ages. When his name cropped up for the new commercial, I immediately agreed to do it. We just shot for the ad in Dubai and it’s turned out really hot.” Ash has worked with Rohan in his debut directorial film ‘Kuch Na Kaho’. Ash has been extremely busy with her work commitments and has mostly been out of the country on work. She has been working very hard trying to wrap up her films Dhoom 2 and Umrao Jaan. In fact she has hardly been able to spend much time with her family and friends and says “I’m in Mumbai only for a few days. I’ll be shooting a song with Hrithik Roshan for Dhoom 2, then I leave for Barcelona for an ad campaign and after that I 'll be going to London for the promotion of Provoked.”
Recently according to sources it was claimed that Ash was not giving enough time for the promotion of her films, in fact during the release of her film Mistress of Spices, she barely promoted the film. However Ash flatly denies any such claims and says “I’ve always made myself available for the promotion of all my films. During the release of Mistress of Spices, I was really pressed for time, nonetheless I still did a number of interviews for the film. Well this time Ash will not let any rumours regarding lack of promotion get in her way, as she is all set to promote Jagmohan Mundra’s film ‘Provoked’ based on the real life story of Kiranjit Ahluwalia.
Recently there were also rumours alleging that Ash has refused to dub for Provoked in regional languages, including Hindi. However Ash claims that the she has already spoken in Punjabi in the film but has asked the filmmakers to get professionals to do the Tamil and Telugu dubbings, as she feels that her voice will not be able to do justice to these versions as she is not familiar with the language. Nonetheless producer of Provoked, Murli Manohar is extremely grateful that Ash will be promoting the film in London despite her hectic schedules. He also claims that Ash’s performance in Provoked is her best performance ever. Ash has four films lined up for this year, Umrao Jaan and Guru with beau Abhishek Bachchan, Provoked and Dhoom2. Let’s hope that Ash will finally get her well-deserved box-office hit soon.
