Aishwarya Rai Bachchan squashes rumours of influencing Abhishek to quit Shonali Bose’s next

A few months back reports of Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra approached for Shonali Bose’s next started doing the rounds. In this untitled project, Abhishek and Priyanka were supposed to play parents to ‘Dangal’ actress Zaira Wasim.

Inspired by a real-life story, this film is based on the life of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary, who was born with an immune deficiency disorder and at the age of 13, she was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Apart from being a motivational speaker, Aisha has a book ‘My Little Epiphanies’ to her credit. Aisha was named an INK Fellow following her speeches in the 2011 and 2013 INK Conferences and was also a speaker at TEDx Pune in 2013. She eventually passed away at the age of 18 on January 24, 2015.

Recently reports of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan not being keen on Abhishek taking up this project started doing the rounds. According to a report on Zoom TV, Aishwarya thinks that Abhishek should take up films like ‘Manmarziyaan’ wherein his character has more scope.

However, squashing all these reports Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s team issued a statement which read, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan not too keen for Abhishek Bachchan to sign Shonali Bose’s next film has been doing rounds on the internet. To clear the record Abhishek Bachchan has refused this particular film and it’s a low down tactic to drag Aishwarya’s name in this context.”

So with the clarification coming straight from the horse’s mouth, we think this chapter should be closed now.
