Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are two of the most famous actors in Bollywood. This is one of the reasons their alleged relationship has been such a hot topic these days. Much has been said about their relationship, but there are only a few that are actually correct. Years later in the year 2018, reports said that Aishwarya signed the film Josh opposite Shah Rukh Khan because of her alleged ex Salman.
For the uninitiated, Josh was a 2000 film that falls under the romantic drama genre. The film was directed by Mansoor Khan and apart from SRK and Aish, also featured actors like Chandrachur Singh and Sharad Kapoor among others. The plot of this movie revolves around two brothers, who are twins, and their journey through love, life and conflicts.
According to a report by Bollywood Spy, the casting of Josh was initially slightly different and Chandrachur Singh was not even a part of the film. The original lineup included Salman Khan and he was the one who had to be put in Singh’s place for the character Rahul. However, Salman reportedly left the film out of choice and that’s when Chandrachur appeared in the film.
The same report also says that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan bagged the role of Shirley only because Salman Khan was a part of it. Even though Shah Rukh Khan was the USP of the film, her reasons for doing it were her then boyfriend.
On the work front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will soon be seen playing a pivotal role in the upcoming period drama Ponniyin Selvan: 1. The film is directed by Mani Ratnam and stars actors like Vikram and Trisha in pivotal roles. The teaser of the film was recently released by the makers and it has already created a lot of buzz on social media.
