Aishwarya Rai Bachchan says no to reality shows due to her film commitments
A recent news story issued by a channel suggested Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was ousted by Madhuri Dixit for one of their reality shows, citing monies as an issue. It's alarming and rather sad to see that a channel by issuing such a statement is trying to ride on the popularity of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to get publicity for their reality show.
We would wish to clarify that this is an act of fiction, fact being that ARB who is known to be a through professional had to refuse the show on account of her commitment to films. She is presently busy with a grueling schedule of GUZAARISH, while ENDHIRAN (ROBOT), ACTION REPLAY and RAVAAN is all near completion thus the subject of monies and costing never did arise as discussions did not go beyond schedules and dates.
The proposal had come to Aishwarya through the Moranis and even Shiamak did push Aishwarya to do the show but the dates could just not be worked out.
Shiamak added, ''I would love to have her as she is the best and we go back a long way. I have been her teacher and worked closely with her on TAAL and numerous stage shows. For me she is a true blend of total perfection, total beauty and a complete performer. It would have been ideal if her busy schedule would have permitted her to do this show. I would have been the happiest person''.
This is not the first reality show that Aishwarya has been approached for. Various proposals have come along but her schedules thus far have not allowed her to even consider the same. We would again like to reiterate that it was wrong and unfair for the channel to proclaim that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was too expensive and therefore they had to go with another host when the discussions did not even go beyond discussing dates.
