If there is an eternal beauty in our Bollywood then it has to be Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In fact, day by day she is looking even more beautiful. After enthralling the audience with her performance in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, the actress is back after two years with the musical drama ‘Fanney Khan’.

In her acting career, whenever Aishwarya Rai has teamed up with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the two have always created magic on the silver screen. Aishwarya has starred in Bhansali’s hit films like ‘Devdas’, ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Guzaarish‘ . However, post these films, we haven’t seen both of them team up together again.

Recently in an interview with Spotboye, the actress was asked when she will be working with Bhansali again, to which she replied, ” ‘Bajirao Mastani’ also we were supposed to do together. He didn’t get the Bajirao for me; he wanted me to do ‘Padmaavat‘, but could not get the Khilji for me, at the casting time. So, that’s how it didn’t happen. I would love to work together.”

“The person he saw to play Khilji with me playing Padmavati did not happen. So, at the end of the day, you need to see the casting. If the casting is not happening, then you know…sometimes, it doesn’t come together. The intention is always there to work together, but it didn’t happen. We both loved working with each other, so let’s see, whenever it is meant to be,” the actress added further.

So, guys, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was supposed to star in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmaavat’ however things didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to. Later both these films went to the leggy beauty Deepika Padukone in which she starred opposite Ranveer Singh.
