I'm not a look alike of Aish: Sneha Ullal
To get a break in the film industry, hundreds of aspiring girls first enter fashion shows and modeling. Besides, they gatecrash into parties of film and other celebrities. They wear their sexiest and most glamorous clothes to attract the right persons. Sometime they approach the right quarters through the middle persons like photographers and coordinators. They don't hesitate in attending disco parties and revealing their skin. Very few of them are lucky to get a chance in films. Sneha Ullall is one of them. Yes, she turns Lucky in 'Lucky-No Time For Love'.
She is lucky as she looks like Aishwarya Rai though she denies it. " No body thought of it when I signed the film. Later, a photographer drew some profiles and revealed that I look like Aish. In one or two photos I may look like Aish, but I am not her look alike for sure." Interestingly, it is said that the story of this movie is based on the real love life of Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. The director duo of Radhika- Vinay was looking for a face that looks like that of Aish, and they found it in Sneh. They liked her appearance but wanted to test her skill.
