Though they have moved on in their life, the bitter past is still haunting them. As we all know beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has geared up with the promotions of ‘Jazbaa’ which is set to hit theatres tomorrow. During an interview for ‘Jazbaa’ promotions, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan spoke about working with Salman Khan for Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s ‘Bajirao Mastani‘ which now stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.
Well, little did any one know that director Bhansali had approached Salman and Aishwarya for ‘Bajirao Mastani’ until Aishwarya revealed about the same recently. However, on knowing about Salman, Aishwarya turned down the offer for the obvious reasons.

The ‘Jazbaa‘ actress at the interview said that at the start of the film ‘Bajirao Mastani’ director Sanjay Leela Bhansali was looking for certain casting that he had dreamt of bringing together. Along with Aishwarya even Salman was approached and the possibility of playing the role of Mastani didn’t come forward as Bajirao (Salman Khan) was also approached, she added.
If Salman Khan was not approached for the film, the actress would have openly talked about it, she stated. “Every film has its destiny and finds the way it is meant to be,” she said.
Well, it is known to all that former couple, Salman and Aishwarya will never be seen together on the silver screen ever. Director Bhansali also had a dream to bring Rani Mukerji on board with Salman and Aishwarya, but it never happened due to Rani and Aishwarya’s bitter friendship.
As a results, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ brings two lovers Deepika and Ranveer together for the film after ‘Ram-Leela’. Priyanka will be seen in the character of Kashibai in the film whereas Deepika will be playing the character of second wife Mastani.
