Here’s why Emraan Hashmi wants to apolgise to Aishwarya Rai
Emraan Hashmi and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have never done a film together or were spotted bonding even off the screen. While the ‘Jazbaa’ actress was in talks to star in ‘Baadshaho’, the casting could not be possible apparently becase Emraan was on of the leads in the film.
Now, Emraan has opened up about the silent war between him and the former Miss World and said that he wanted to apologise to Aishwarya. But why?
The incident goes back to the year 2014, when Emraan was invited on Karan Johar’s talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’. During the rapid fire round, the filmmaker asked Emraan to name an actor/actress that comes to his mind at the mention of the word ‘plastic’. The actor immediately replied, ‘Aishwarya’. While Emraan was being sporty, his ‘opinion’ didn’t go down well with the gorgeous diva, who was apparently upset with Emraan for calling her ‘plastic’.
During a promotional activity for his upcoming film ‘Raaz Reboot’, the ‘Murder’ actor was quizzed about his tiff with Aishwarya and related it to the actress turning down ‘Baadshaho’. Emraan was visibly amused at the query, but replied, “I don’t know who was approached for the role of the leading lady but it’s like going back into history… that remark was made two years ago. The statement was made in jest and it’s all for the hamper.”
“I am a big fan of Aishwarya and if I meet her I will definitely apologise because there was nothing personal. Karan just nudges you and makes you say these things. I haven’t had the chance to meet her. She would have forgotten this incident but obviously she was reminded of it because of articles in newspapers,” he added.
Meanwhile, ‘Raaz Reboot’ starring Emraan, Kriti Kharbanda and Gaurav Arora is set to hit screens on September 16.
