Aishwarya and Shah Rukh Khan waiting for the right script
It was rather the sight when Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan bonded at an event in Mumbai just a few days ago.
It sets tongues wagging about rekindling their friendship, and even murmurs of a picture together.
Yet, despite the smiles for the cameras, the two actors have apparently jointly refused films opposite each other in the recent past.
In fact, not merely one or two, they’ve nixed a good three films that could’ve steered them in concert.
These offers came up soon later the two were caught together in Karan Johar’s Aye Dil Hai Mushkil.
“After the film, filmmakers realized that Ash may not experience a problem working with Shah Rukh, and hence considered casting the two together. But then, both these actors were not comfortable with the kind of scripts offered to them. They don’t have a problem working with each other, as they’re thorough professionals. But then the script has to be good enough for them to be cast opposite each other,” says a source.
