Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will most likely star in Mani Ratnam’s next. Their association goes back…
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is quickly gaining the reputation of being the favourite director of leading ladies. He has always presented them lovingly and turned them into beautiful, ethereal creatures on the big screen.
He also likes to repeat his leading ladies in his films. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan worked with him in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Guzaarish. Rani Mukerji in Saawariya and Black and Deepika Padukone in Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
He recently mentioned Rani and Aishwarya as some of his favourite people to work with, so when will he work with them again?
Sanjay says, “I feel that I should work with them but I also feel that some magic has to remain — what it was — you can’t recreate that. Rani and Aishwarya are very special. A lot of people feel I am rude, arrogant, disinterested, but I love all the people I have worked with, be it Rani who loves me, and Aishwarya who I never need to say a word to and she’s there for me, with Salman I had that, but Salman is still upset about a few things — I don’t know what — but those moments are special. Now Ranveer has come into that space for me.”
