Everything is fine between Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan today but things were not the same back then. Read on…
Things were going super smooth between the Bollywood actors, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan till the time the former Miss World’s ex-boyfriend Salman Khan created a serious issue on the sets of Chalte Chalte in which SRK was cast opposite the Bachchan Bahu. King Khan wasn’t amused clearly with the whole matter and decided to remove Aishwarya from the cast of the film and that was how Rani Mukerji walked in. Even Aishwarya lost out on a big YRF film like Veer Zaara which became a cult classic later and had Preity Zinta later on.
In an old interview with Simi Garewal, Aishwarya had opened up on the whole matter and had said, “How can I have the answer to that? Yes, at the time, there was talk of a couple of films that we would be working in together. And then, suddenly they weren’t happening, without any explanation whatsoever. I have never had the answer to why.”

To add on to this, even Shah Rukh said in an old interview of his, “To start a project with someone and then change her for no fault of hers is very difficult. It is very sad as Ash is a good friend. Personally I think I did wrong. But as a producer it made sense. I apologized to Ash.”
On the other hand, Aishwarya clearly doesn’t remember any apologies and she was seen saying to Simi, “At the time, when you have no explanation, you obviously are taken aback, confused and of course, hurt. You wonder about it.”
“It’s not in my nature. I think if a person wants to explain it, they will do it on their own. If they never did, they never intended to. I would probably question within myself but I wouldn’t go up to a person and ask why,” she concluded.
Well, everything is fine between the two superstars and we wish they must do a film one more time and create the magic of Devdas one more time. And yes, all is well that ends well!
