Ash asks Abhi not to work with Kat

Katrina Kaifs' refusal to star opposite Abhishek Bachchan in Abbas Mustan’s ‘Italian Job’ has not gone well with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In the consequence of Kat’s refusal, it is rumored that she asked her hubby Abhishek Bachchan not to share screen space with Katrina Kaif in ‘Dostana 2’. Katrina at first accepted to do ‘Italian Job’ but later she walked out of the project citing dates problem.

Buzz has it that Katrina Kaif refused to act alongside Abhishek because of Abhi's dipping career. Abhi’s last flick ‘Raavan’ was badly beaten at the box office. So, Ash debarred Abhi from working with Kat and Abhi being a dotting husband would not neglect his wife's decision.

A source close to Aishwarya revealed: "Ash is known to use her influence in deciding her husband's projects. She has been telling her friends about how Katrina Kaif dumped the Abbas-Mustan film because there was not much for her to do in a film starring Abhishek. Now, she wants Abhishek to avoid Dostana 2.”

A director friend of Abhishek revealed on the condition of anonymity: "Abhishek values his wife's judgment a lot and will always take what she says seriously. If she is trying to influence him against working with Katrina, he might just end up taking it seriously. These things keep happening in the industry."

It is not only Kat but Deepika and Priyanka Chopra also rejected ‘Italian Job’.

"Katrina has been preparing for this role for a long time. If Abhishek were to drop the film at this stage, it would mean rescheduling the shooting again," the source revealed.
