In 2002, the Sarbjit actress spoke about her breakup with Salman Khan and told TOI, “Salman and I broke up last March, but he isn’t able to come to terms with it…After we broke up, he would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected me of having affairs with my co-stars. I was linked up with everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan. There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And, I would go to work as if nothing had happened. Salman hounded me and caused physical injuries to himself when I refused to take his calls.” The actress also called out his alcohic behaviour in her later conversation with The Indian Express and said, “I stood by him enduring his alcoholic misbehaviour in its worst phases and in turn I was at the receiving end of his abuse (verbal, physical and emotional), infidelity and indignity. That is why like any other self-respecting woman I ended my relationship with him.”
On the professional front, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be next seen in Mani Ratnam's ambitious project Ponniyin Selvan. Reportedly, the actress will portray Nandini—wife of Chola Kingdom's Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar and Nandini's mother—Mandakini Devi's part, who was a mute queen. Though the primary focus will be on Nandini's life. The film is based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's historical novel and will narrate the story of Arulmozhivarman, who later became the great Raja Raja Chola I. It also stars Chiyaan Vikram, Trisha, Karthi, Jayam Ravi and others in key roles. The film is bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
