Obituaries were in place for the Aishwarya-Shah Rukh pair, immediately after the unfortunate happenings on the sets of CHALTE CHALTE (2003), involving her and 'the then' boyfriend Salman Khan. But that is a closed chapter and a thing of the past. At present Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is basking in the glory of the superb performance of her first post marriage release, JODHAA AKBAR. Even her detractors have grudgingly given her the title- The first fully active actress after marriage!
There is no denying the fact that the two films, JOSH (2000), MOHABBATEIN (2000) and DEVDAS (2002), in which Aishwarya acted with Shah Rukh Khan, the two vibed superbly. In fact, when JOSH released, the uniform view was that Aishwarya shared a better chemistry with SRK (who played her brother in the film) than with her love interest, Chandrachur Singh! Not only that, their item number, 'Ishq Kameena' from SHAKTI -THE POWER (2002) is a very popular track, till this day.
So will we see the King Khan-Aishwarya pair again or has the CHALTE CHALTE controversy killed the prospects? Well, when the Bachchan Bahu was asked the same, she was very clear when she said that she is ready to work with Shah Rukh Khan, provided that there is a proposal worthy of her consideration.
