Katrina Kaif angry with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan replaced Katrina Kaif as the brand ambassador of a giant real estate advert and it has not gone well with the ‘Dhoom 3’ actress as she was at first chosen as the brand ambassador of the project. Kat was verbally finalized to represent the project but things went wrong in between and they have signed the former beauty queen and actress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
"Ash's name was announced with great fanfare. But it was actually Kat 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," a source told Mid Day.
When contacted, Katrina's spokesperson refused to divulge any details saying, "Kat is approached by many brands and it is not possible to sign all of them. It is not fair to discuss any names."
However, the tabloid quoted a friend of the actress as saying that "Kat had no idea she had been replaced by Ash".
The real estate company confirmed that Katrina was indeed approached but the deal could not materialize due to the some clauses.
"We were in discussions with various individuals and could not proceed with Katrina due to certain clashes in her positioning vis-a-vis our brand positioning. The discussions with her took place in May and early June," confirmed the company spokesperson.
It was not the first time stars are embroiled in cat-fights due to endorsement. Years back, when Sonam Kapoor was signed as the brand ambassador of cosmetic brand of which Ash was also the brand ambassador, there was a huge showdown between the two beauties when Sonam addressed Aishwarya as ‘Aunty'.
