Salman Khan wants to romance Aishwarya, declines ‘Padmavati’

Years back, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhanshali wanted to make ‘Padmavati’ with Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. He wanted to recreate the magic of ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ but unfortunately this could not happen and surprisingly the reason is Salman Khan and not Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Long back Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream to make ‘Padmavati’ with Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shelved. It could not happen due to Salman and Ash’s ugly break-up. The film however, shelved. But the long cherish dream of Bhansali to make ‘Padmavati’ with Salman and Aishwarya did not die down and after so many years he again approached the couple to come on board. Surprisingly , Aishwarya agreed but Salman declined.

The ‘Sarbjit’ actress wanted Salman Khan to play the role of Alauddin Khilji, the main antagonist as Rani Padmavati has no scenes with Khilji in the film. As expected, Salman refused to enact the role of Khilji.

As per report, Salman Khan wanted romantic angle between him and Ash as he wanted to bring alive the magic of ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ but when he was approached for the role of Khilji, he declined ‘Padmavati’ as he will not get to romance with Aishwarya.

Highly disappointed with the development, Bhansali dropped the idea to make ‘Padmavati’ with his ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ after long years he said 'Action' for ‘Padmavati’ with Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.

The periodic drama is slated to hit the theatrical screens on 17th November this year.
