The last time the beauty queen was offered a role opposite the Hollywood heartthrob in Troy, she turned it down!
During the promotions of international mob-drama Killing Them Softly, the film’s lead star actor Brad Pitt waxed eloquent about his Bollywood know-how. And apart from showering praises on the fast-changing Hindi film industry and expressing his interest in doing a Bollywood masala flick, Brad revealed that he’d like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
This is what he said: “Given a chance, I would like to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan because she’s a versatile actor. She has worked brilliantly in films like The Mistress of Spices, The Last Legion, The Pink Panther 2 and Provoked to name a few.”
Thankfully, unlike other Hollywood folks, the American hottie wasn’t just name-dropping to impress the media. He did know who and what he was talking about. Brad believes, “She is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood, who has achieved huge acclaim in the West for her style, beauty and acting skills. I think we missed an opportunity to be cast together for the movie Troy.”
It looks like one of Brad’s longstanding dreams is to pair up with the Bollywood beauty. But will it happen any time soon? We doubt it, ‘coz right now clearly Ash is concentrating on motherhood and not movies.
