It was her first working experience with a stalwart like Raj Kumar Santoshi as she finds her role in 'Khakee' challenging.

Aishwarya was delighted working in Hollywood, as she hopes to maintain balance between Hollywood and Bollywood. Ash was supposed to play female lead in Bhansali's forthcoming 'Baajirao Mastani' but she was replaced by her archrival Kareena Kapoor. She was not upset with her exclusion and hopes to work with Bhansali in his next venture though.
