Everyone wants to work with South Superstar Rajinikanth. But today we are going to tell you about an actress who refused to work with Thalaiva not once but 4-4 times. Although the reason for the actress’ refusal was not disclosed, Thalaiva did not give up. Finally, the pair of these two appeared in ‘Enthiran’, which was released in English as ‘Robot’. That actress is none other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, daughter-in-law of friend Amitabh Bachchan.
According to media reports, Rajinikanth wanted to romance Bollywood’s most beautiful actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. For this, he had offered not one but four films to the actress and she also rejected all the four offers. These four films ‘Padayappa’, ‘Baba’, ‘Chandramukhi’ and ‘Shivaji’. In an interview, Thalaiva also revealed that he wanted actress Aishwarya Rai to play the lead role in the film ‘Chandramukhi’. Because he was not sure that anyone would be able to do justice to the latter character. However, Bachchan’s daughter-in-law rejected it.
However, even Rajinikanth did not agree and he continued to try to share the screen with him. Thalaiva’s fifth film ‘Enthiran’ was offered to Aishwarya and she finally said yes to work in it. It was also released in English, whose name was ‘Robot’. In this, the romantic pairing of both was very much liked.
When Rajinikanth’s neighbors were shocked
When the news of Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai sharing the screen came in the media for the first time, everyone had a shocking reaction after hearing from it. Even those who knew Thalaiva were deeply shocked. The actor himself told about this story. When a person did not believe that Aishwarya was working with him, he asked Rajinikanth, after hearing his answer yes, he just kept looking at her for 10 minutes and then left. Even a person in his own house was talking about him only that Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan have happened. This story was also mentioned by the superstar in front of Big B. Amitabh Bachchan started laughing loudly on this.
However, if we talk about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s work front, she was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s film ‘PS-1’. Now she is going to appear in its second part as well.
