Aishwarya the latest victim in the Shahrukh-Salman war?

We hear the new mother has planned a long sabbatical from work; rumours of her doing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film were circulated to create unnecessary argument

It’s not that easy being a Miss World, a top actor and a Bachchan bahu. You are bound to cause envy among your detractors. Sadly for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, she had to learn this the hard way, and that too when she is just beginning to cope with motherhood. As if the stress of taking care of a baby were not enough, Aishwarya has had to fight away news that she has agreed to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his next film, Bajirao Mastani. It seems innocuous on the surface, but there’s more brewing underneath than meets the eye. Bajirao Mastani was first offered to Salman Khan and Aishwarya when they were together. When Ash broke up with Sallu, Bhansali offered the film to Kareena Kapoor. Then, for reasons unknown, the film was stalled. More recently, there was a war of words between Salman and Sanjay, with Salman claiming that he had given Bhansali the idea for Guzaarish. A few days ago, buzz had it that Bhansali was going to make the film with Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya. Now we hear that is not true at all .Bhansali and Shahrukh are in talks to make a film, but it is not Bajirao Mastani. Aishwarya is planning to take a year-long sabbatical from films and it is yet uncertain which project she will make a comeback with. From what we hear, SRK and Salman’s detractors are deliberately using Ash to push the two Khans further apart. Tsk tsk. Such childishness. Come on guys, let the lady be!
