Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played mediator

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played mediator when she convinced her husband Abhishek to play the lead opposite her in Kandokondein, director Rajeev Menon’s next film. However, it didn’t take her long to go back on her word and betray the director as soon as another opportunity came along.

It’s not a hidden fact that Ash wants to concentrate on movies with her husband when it comes to Bollywood, and she is in the process of completing Ravan with Mani Ratnam.

She was bowled over by Menon’s script and asked Abhishek to sign on for the film. Meanwhile, upcoming director Abhinay Deo, who is directing Aamir Khan produced Delhi Belly, approached the Bachchan couple for his next film. Since Deo is a name to look out for, Abhishek and Aishwarya instantly gave him their nod of approval. Their dates, which were initially given to Menon were shifted to Deo’s film. Menon is still reeling under what has happened as his entire project is now caught in a rut.
