Reports suggest that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is sulking over her illustrious father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan working with Emraan Hashmi. The reason? Emraan had called Aishwarya “plastic” on Karan Johar’s chat show several seasons ago. But sources close to Aishwarya laugh off the whole alleged friction media-manufactured fiction.
A close member of the family reveals, “Aishwarya doesn’t even remember the incident. She has nothing against Emraan. This is unnecessary publicity being generated for the product by some marketing brains. If you look at it objectively, Aishwarya would have much more of an issue with any of her family member working with Salman Khan. But Bachchan Saab has worked with Salman and has also praised him to the sky in print. Aishwarya had no issues with any member of her family working with anyone.”
Says the source close to Aishwarya, “In fact, she spoke at length with Sanjay after the cast of Inshallah was announced to congratulate him.”
In actuality, Aishwarya doesn’t bring her work into her home. If she did, she would not act so friendly at public function with the legendary Rekha who’s a taboo subject in the Bachchan household.
