Will Smith and George Bush fond of Aishwarya Rai
Aishwarya Rai is one of the most sought after actress in Bollywood as well as Hollywood. She already has a number of Hollywood flicks in her kitty. However another plump offer has been made to the green eyed girl. Will Smith has asked Aishwarya to star in his next film as the lead.
Last week talented actor Will Smith was in India and partied with the likes of Karan Johar, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Fardeen Khan amongst others. The actor met up with the princess of bollywood, Aishwarya Rai and gave her a detailed narration of the story and plot of his film; he then asked her if she would play the lead role in the film. He lavished a lot of praises on her talent and appeal in the west. According to sources Miss Rai was to star opposite Smith in Hitch but was unable to do so as she was busy with Gurinder Chadha’s film, Bride and Prejudice at the time. Aishwarya will definitely give this offer some serious thought.
Another reason for Aishwarya Rai’s heart to swell with pride is that American President George Bush would like to meet her. Miss Rai has received an invitation from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the prestigious power lunch with the US President at the Taj Palace in New Delhi. Following the lunch invite came a dinner invitation from President Abdul Kalam too.
Unfortunately the actress will not be able to lunch with some of the most powerful people as she is away shooting for Sanjay Gadhvi’s Dhoom 2, in Rio, Brazil. In fact the lady is not even aware of the invitation, as her business manager, Deepak Kumar stated that he had received the invitation from a protocol officer, Ministry of External Affairs only after she left for her flight and she would not be able to access her cell phone for another twelve hours. Miss Rai definitely has some famous and powerful admirers in the West.
Director, Mani Ratnam will be casting the sensational off screen couple, Aishwarya-Abhishekh for his next venture which is tentatively titled Guru. Aishwarya and Abhishekh Bachchan have been confirmed for the lead roles, along with rising star Vidya Balan. However, another male lead is yet to be finalized and rumour mills are abuzz that the other actor could be none other than Vivek Oberoi. If Mani Ratnam does manage to pull this off, it will definitely be one film worth waiting and watching. Here’s hoping that we get to watch the chemistry between the X-Miss World, her current beau and her X-boyfriend.
