Did you know Shahrukh Khan had once removed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from 5 films? King Khan and Ash became one of the most popular on-screen couples after giving hits like Mohabbatein and Devdas. They were so much in demand that every producer wanted to cast them in their movie. It was reported that they had signed at least 5 films together post Devdas. But after the infamous fight of Salman Khan and Aishwarya on the sets of Chalte Chalte, SRK removed the latter from all the five films. Here's what the actor had said when he was asked if he had any regret after removing Ash from the films.
It Was Not Aishwarya Rai's Fault
He had told India Today, "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."
But It Made Sense
"Personally I think I did wrong. But as a producer it made sense. I apologised to Ash."
Here's What Aishwarya Had Said...
On Simi's chat show, when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was asked to comment on the same, she had said, "There were a couple of films that were supposed to happen with me. But suddenly they weren't happening, without any reason whatsoever. I have never had the answer to why."
It Was Not My Decision
"It wasn't my decision. You obviously are taken aback, confused and of course hurt. You wonder about it. It's not in my nature to ask someone. If they have to explain, they will do it on their own. If they never did, they never intend to. I would probably question within myself but I wouldn't go up to a person and ask why."
Here's What Had Happened On Chalte Chalte Sets
A source had revealed to a daily as, ''We had just finished the song sequences on the truck from Pune to Malshet and it was night time when, as we were heading towards our next location, Salman appeared and created the scene.''
Salman Was Uncontrollable
"He was uncontrollable for those four-and-half hours.That's when an upset Azizbhai called off the entire schedule."
He added, "Though, choreographer Farah Khan did not want to. She said, 'Why should we pack up and leave? Let's continue shooting.' Even Aishwarya was of the same opinion. But what the director said, prevailed, and they called off the shoot for that day."
When Aishwarya Took A Dig At Shahrukh Recently
A few days back, Aishwarya was asked when she will sign a film with Shahrukh, in response to which she seemed to take a sly dig at him. "When will I get cast with Shahrukh Khan? I think a lot of those actors are quite involved in the casting of their movies, so ask them, they will know when they will choose to work with me," she told a daily.
