Mumbai: Sanjay Leela Bhansali establishes an emotional connect with the cast of his film and his muse Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of his closest friends. They have worked together in super hit flicks like ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Devdas’.
And now the master filmmaker is deeply concerned about the beautiful actress after ‘Raavan’, her one of the most ambitious projects with hubby Abhishek Bachchan, has fallen flat at the box office. According to sources, Bhansali, who had plans to work with Kareena in his next film, has backtracked.
If sources are to be believed, Bhansali has decided to feature Ash in his next film. She is already in the film ‘Guzaarish’ but Bhansali wants to boost her morale by signing her in his next project also. And at this point of time, Bhansali has dropped the idea of signing Kareena, in favour of his favourite Ash.
A source said to a news daily, “Sanjay felt that by bringing Kareena in his film at a time when Aishwarya had suffered such a debacle, he would be betraying her.”
Bhansali is a real friend in deed!
