Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to compete with Salman Khan on the small screen?

Talk about some exciting news! While we already have Salman Khan ruling our television screens with his hit show, Bigg Boss. Latest buzz suggests Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too is now set to make her TV debut with a singing reality show ‘Dil Hai Hindustani’ on rival channel, Star Plus. Yes, although an official confirmation on the same is yet to be made but word it that the show is scouting for a fifth judge which already has a panel of judges to the likes of – Karan Johar, Shekhar Ravijani, Badshah and Shalmali Kholgade. Speaking of which, a source in an interaction with DNA confirmed, “The makers are leaving no stone unturned to convince Ash to sign up for the show. She is still mulling over the project. The makers have also requested Karan to put in a word. Chances are she might agree to come on board. If that happens the actress will be joining four celebrity judges in the panel. Her presence will add a distinctive vibe to the show.” Also read: Salman Khan’s plan to help Aishwarya Rai’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will leave you surprised!

Now if at all Aishwarya really takes up this project, this will not only turn out to be her much awaited television debut but also pit her against television’s favourite host Salman Khan. Of course, there are many other celebrities who have equally tried their hand at hosting/judging shows including Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan to Shilpa Shetty among others. But given that Salman’s leading the race right now, we can’t ignore but draw parallels between Aishwarya and Salman.

It’s left to see how will Salman react on seeing Aishwarya taking up a reality show. I mean, although they share a past and things aren’t the same how it used to be when they were in love but the fact that both have moved far ahead in their respective lives says it all. Add to that, the other day we even got to hear how Ash is keen on reuniting with Salman on the big screen, if at all there’s a brilliant script in the offering.
