When the Bachchan family walked the ramp for Shabana Azmi’s Mijwan Welfare Society, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was nowhere to be seen. The theme for the evening was legacy and along with the Bachchan’s, there were other prominent names too. Though Aishwarya has always been a part of family appearances, this time she not only wasn’t spotted on the ramp, but also gave the show a miss. A source reveals, “Everyone was surprised to see Ash missing on the ramp or the audience. Though she wanted to be there to cheer for the family, it wasn’t possible for her to attend the show as she was shooting for Jazbaa, her comeback film. Abhishek, Shweta, Jaya and Amitabh were on the ramp and on being asked about Ash, Abhi was spotted telling a few people that his wifey was busy.”
Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was nowhere to be seen at the grand Mijwan – The Legacy fashion show that took place over the weekend. The actress reportedly gave the starry night a miss as she was busy shooting for her comeback film, ‘Jazbaa’.
Not only did Aishwarya Rai miss the show, but she also skipped joining the Bachchan clan – Big B, Jaya Bachchan, husband Abhishek and sister-in-law Shweta Nanda on the ramp.
With a string of tweets mentioning Aish, the director said, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is going beyond the call of duty in JAZBAA. Her passion and commitment to her job is beyond imagination. Its amazing how much I’m learning just watching the powerhouse talents of ARB, Irrfan & Shabanaji. I guess GOD loves me after all. :-))). At times I feel guilty making ARB work this hard. But then this woman is made of steely grit and insane commitment to her job.”
Sanjay in a gist explained us what a day of shoot for Bachchan lady is like. He tweeted, “Extreme heat, dust clouds, getting emotionally badgered, running behind speeding cars, screaming out loud. Just another day for ARB on set”.
He also praised Irrfan Khan, and said, “Everyone thinks Irrfan is a great actor. They’re wrong. He’s a magician. He takes the most mundane moments, weaves his magic & kya kahien…”
The film has a very intriguing star cast and an equally intriguing storyline. This October we will finally get to see “Jazbaa” in them all!
