There are lot of reports going on between Aishwarya rai Bachchan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. One of the stories is that Aishwarya chose Anurag Kashyap over Bhansali and then now there is the contradiction of Aish’s claim on being the leading lady for both ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmaavat’.
Though Mrs. Bachchan gave her clarification about choosing Anurag Kashyap and later Bhansali too claimed today that the reports are baseless and completely false.
Aishwarya earlier shared that she was the first choice for Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, but the director failed to find the Bajirao for him.
Aishwarya said, “Bajirao Mastani also we were supposed to do together. He didn’t get the Bajirao for me. He didn’t get the Khilji for me; He wanted me to do Padmaavat, but could not get the Khilji for me, at the casting time. So, that’s how it didn’t happen. I would love to work together.” she told Spotboye. Aishwarya added, "The person he saw to play Khilji with me playing Padmaavati did not happen. So, at the end of the day, you need to see the casting. If the casting is not happening, then sometimes, it doesn’t come together. The intention is always there to work together, but it didn’t happen. We both loved working with each other, so let’s see, whenever it is meant to be.”
Now, a source have said, "It was also reported that Aishwarya was offered Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, both of which are untrue. When Bajirao Mastani was first announced over a decade ago, it was with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Padmaavat too was offered only to Deepika Padukone, who was the first choice. Aishwarya has not been offered any Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed film after Guzaarish. The filmmaker is wondering where these rumours are stemming from, however, the fact that the two share a great rapport and are friends could be a reason for people and the media alike to jump to conclusions."
The source claimed Aishwarya not being offered these blockbusters are untrue because Sanjay Leela Bhansalli said it himself in the Koffee with Karan. Bhansali revealed in the show how he wanted Salman to play Bajirao but the actor and actress are not willing to do the film together.
