Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is perhaps one of the most beautiful actresses that the film industry has ever seen. Although she stays away from the limelight now, there was a time when this leading lady was always in the news.
Here are a few controversies associated with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Her troubled relationship
Top B-town celebs Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan fell for each other on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999).
Later on, the actress accused Salman of harassing and physically abusing her while the two were dating.
Complicated Love life
After Salman Khan, Aishwarya began dating actor Vivek Oberoi. Still new in the industry, Vivek then committed the mistake of messing with Salman! The former called the media and accused Salman of calling him multiple times and threatening him. Aishwarya said Vivek was ‘immature’ to act this way.
A million dollars for one night
Back in 2008, Asif Zardari, politician, and chairperson of Pakistan claimed that Aishwarya was called to entertain them for a night for which she was paid 1 million dollars. However, there is no evidence to back this claim and it might as well be an attempt to tarnish her reputation.
Link up with Big B
There was a time when rumors about Aishwarya and father-in-law Amitabh’s affair were doing rounds.
Lip lock with Ajay Devgn
Actor Ajay Devgn and Aiswarya Rai hugged and greeted each other at an event. However, a picture capturing the moment from the wrong angle soon began to do rounds. In the picture, it seemed that the two were kissing, which was not true.
The popular kissing scene from Dhoom 2, where Aishwarya could be seen locking lips with Hrithik Roshan was rather problematic for her in-laws. She took a long break from work after that.
Aishwarya returned to the silver screen with Ae Dil Hain Mushkil in 2017. Apparently, the intimate scenes between her and Ranbir Kapoor upset the Bachchans.
Accusations over photoshoot
In 2015, Aishwarya did a photoshoot for a popular jewelry brand. Unfortunately, the photoshoot resulted in more controversies for the actress. In the picture, she can be seen sitting dolled up in traditional attire while a ‘dark-skinned slave-child’ holds an umbrella over her. The add drew a lot of criticism for being racist and promoting child slavery.
