Here’s why Emraan Hashmi wants to apologize to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan



Remember a few years ago, when Emraan Hashmi had come on Karan Johar’s popular show, ‘Koffee With Karan’, and had stated that he finds Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plastic. Well, recently the actor cleared that he had said that in a jest and instead is a big fan of Aishwarya. The actor also stated that if he meets Ash, he would apologize to her.

 There were reports that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was approached to star opposite Ajay Devgn in ‘Baadshaho’ which also stars Emraan. However, the actress rejected the offer once she came to know that she will be having scenes with Emraan. When an entertainment web portal asked the ‘Azhar’ actor about it, he said, “I don’t know who was approached for the role of the leading lady but it’s like going back into history… that (the remark on ‘Koffee With Karan’) was two years ago. The statement was made in jest and it’s all for the hamper [laughs]. I am a big fan of Aishwarya Rai and if I meet her I will definitely apologise because there was nothing personal (to it).”

“Karan just nudges you and makes you say these things. To win a hamper makes you greedy and makes you do such foolish things. I have no idea whether she refused the film because of my statement — that only the makers and people who approached her know. Lot of actors are approached for a role. I haven’t had the chance to meet her. She would have forgotten this incident but obviously she was reminded of it because of articles in newspapers,” he added.

Emraan is currently busy promoting his upcoming flick ‘Raaz Reboot’ which is slated to release on September 16.
