The breakup of Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai is still a mystery to many. It is one of those relationships which have always been a deeply embedded mystery in the chapter of Bollywood. But it’s no secret that both Salman and Aishwarya were much-in-love once. And today, the scene is such that the ex-lovers do not even look at each other, forget meeting, at events and parties. Though, it’s been almost 16 years since they parted ways, but somewhere their past is still attached to them.

Recently, our eyes caught upon an old interview of Aishwarya where she took Salman’s name when she was asked as to who does she think the sexiest man is, according to her. It was during her conversation with Simi Garewal in the latter’s celebrity talk show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’, wherein the hostess asked her the same.

The actress smiled first and replied, “Caught me on that one. Hmmm it’s a very tough one.” She thought for a while and said, “Could we substitute that with charming (laughed).” She whispered slowly saying, “Taking name, it’s tough.”

Coming back to her normal tone, she replied, “Well, let’s take… someone who is obviously selected amongst the list of Indian men right internationally recently, Salman (Khan). If we were to talk about the obvious that the physical,” Simi added saying at this moment, “I think he’s got very perfect features, I think he’s extremely good looking.”

At present, both of them have moved on in their lives. Salman Khan is still the most eligible bachelor of Bollywood, while Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is happily married to Abhishek Bachchan and they both are proud parents of a Baby girl named Aaradhya.

The time when Abhishek Bachchan was slapped by a lady saying he should STOP acting

It is said that it’s easy to enter the film industry but surviving here is a challenge. Any star kid’s debut in Bollywood automatically comes with a lot of expectations. He or she is expected to leave a lasting impression, just like his/her parents did during their stint in the industry. But, certainly the star kids have their own share of struggles. In fact, the struggle they have to go through is somewhere a little bit more than it is for the outsiders because of the constant comparison to their parents. And what if the comparison is done with none other than megastar Amitabh Bachchan. No points for guessing, the star kid we are talking about is actor Abhishek Bachchan, who made his acting debut in Bollywood with ‘Refugee’ (2000).

People often think that for Abhishek it was easy to work in the film industry, but carrying the burden of the legendary name on his shoulders, the actor’s journey has indeed been a mix of highs and lows. Certainly, it is difficult to unsee his struggle and lowest of the lowest time in his professional life. Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of Abhishek where he opened up about an incident which could have easily broken anyone’s morale as a person. The actor was slapped by a lady who told him upfront that he should stop embarrassing his family and ruining his father’s name. (Also Read: Did you know? Little Abhishek Bachchan found his mother’s films very depressing)

It was on UTV Stars show ‘Yeh Hai Meri Kahani’ where the actor had opened up about this incident. After delivering duds like ‘Tera Jadoo Chal Gayaa’, ‘Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke’, ‘Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai’ and ‘Om Jai Jagadish’, he was already stamped with the title of a ‘Flop Star’. His next film ‘Shararat’ was released during this time. The actor remembers, “One moment I’ll never forget. My film ‘Shararat’ was released and I went to Gaiety Galaxy to check the audience reactions. There was a lady who came out after watching the film in interval and she saw that I was standing near concession stand. She came and slapped me. After that, she said that ‘you’re embarrassing your family’s name, stop acting’.”

As he recalled about it, the actor immediately gave a smile. This indeed shows that how deeply it affected him as an aspiring artiste who wanted to prove his calibre at that point of time.

Further, as time passed by finally the actor delivered a hit film with ‘Dhoom’ (2004) and it was with films like ‘Yuva’ (2004) and ‘Guru’ (2007) that Abhishek’s potential as a serious and intense performer was recognised and appreciated by both critics and audiences.

Mr. India: When Anil Kapoor intervened, and Amrish Puri bagged 'Mogambo' from THIS actor

Touted to be Bollywood’s first sci-fi project, ‘Mr. India’ is one iconic film which is still immensely popular among the masses. Starring Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in lead roles, the film really pioneered a trend and gave us our very own first superhero. And when we recall the movie, there’s no doubt that the first thing that comes to our mind is the cult character of Mogambo, the fierce villain played by late veteran actor Amrish Puri.

He immortalised this character through his influential personality, impeccable acting skills and who could forget his character’s memorable and powerful dialogue, “Mogambo Khush Hua”. Today, it’s really difficult to imagine the much talked about sequel to ‘Mr. India’ without him. However, recently we stumbled upon an interview where we got to know about an interesting fact. Did you know that if it hadn’t been for the lead star of ‘Mr. India’ Anil Kapoor, this popular character of Mogambo would have been played by none other than veteran actor Anupam Kher. Yes! You read that right.

We got to know about this when actors and cousins Sonam Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor had appeared as the celebrity guests on host Anupam Kher’s talk show ‘The Anupam Kher Show – Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai’. It was during his conversation with Sonam and Arjun when he recalled this incident from his career which he considers to be one of the ‘Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai’ moments. Being ‘Mr. India’ starred Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor and was produced by Arjun’s father Boney Kapoor, Anupam recalled the time when he was almost selected to play the coveted role of Mogambo. (Also Check: These rare pictures from the sets of Anil Kapoor and Sridevi-starrer ‘Mr. India’ are pure nostalgia)

He said that his many films had released by that point of time and director Shekhar Kapur wanted him to audition for Mogambo’s part as well. He gave the audition with his own interpretation of the character at Juhu Beach and after looking at it producer Boney Kapoor had even told him that they would need him for 50 days on the film, starting from a specific date. But after this neither Anil or Boney called him back and Shekhar didn’t pick up the actor’s calls. So one day he felt frustrated and went to meet Javed Akhtar (the writer of the film). It was then when Anupam got to know that the role had gone to Amrish Puri. Even though the veteran actor was not as good a friend to Anil Kapoor then as he is now, nevertheless he felt sad.

As time went by he became good friends with Anil and it was after few years when the star revealed to him that it was none but he himself who had led to the replacement of Anupam Kher from ‘Mr. India’. According to Anil as said by Anupam, he had done the right thing, as else Amrish Puri would have never come on-board for the film, ultimately creating history with it. Further, Anupam Kher also confessed on the show that after watching ‘Mr. India’ he himself was convinced that no one could have done a better job of playing the character of Mogambo other than Amrish Puri.

As they say, what is to happen will happen. It is all decided by fate. Ultimately, all thanks to Anil Kapoor, as if he wouldn’t have decided to replace Anupam Kher, we and the cinema lovers wouldn’t witnessed Amrish Puri as the ultimate villain Mogambo.

Indeed, we should end on a note by saying “Mogambo Khush Hua”.
