Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has risen to fame with her immense hard work and dedication. She won the 1994 Miss World pageant and immediately gathered the limelight. However, it was only after three years that she featured in a movie. Aishwarya ventured into films with Iruvar in Tamil film in 1997. Her debut in the Hindi Film industry was Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya in the same year. It was Rani Mukerji’s birthday yesterday because of which she interacted with her fans with a live session on YRF’s official media handle. Now, everyone knows Rani took a huge risk of doing the role of Tina in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The Bollywood fans out there know that she was not the first choice for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai as it was previously offered to Twinkle Khanna, Karisma Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai.
Shock Alert: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Refused to do Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai for THIS reason
Back in 1998, Aishwarya opened up on refusing the role of Tina when the movie had released. In one of the interviews a year later, she had shared the reason for refusing. She said that she was constantly put up in competition with other senior actresses. “I’m in a catch-22 situation, really. Though I’m a newcomer, I’m compared with all the senior actresses,” the Fanney Khan actress revealed. She went on to add, ” If I’d done the film, it would have been tittered that, ‘Look, Aishwarya Rai is back to doing what she did in her modelling days—leaving her hair straight, wearing minis, and pouting glamorously into the camera.’ Ultimately, the hero goes back to the more real person. I know if I’d done Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I would have been lynched.”
In those days, Aishwarya was often targetted because of stereotypical roles. For the same, she had asked all to not knock her hard work and professionalism down because of her good looks.
