When Aishwarya Rai Bachchan got legal threats for kissing Hrithik Roshan
Legal threats for kissing?
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is among those superstars who never invited controversies in her way. Aishwarya has always been far off from the controversy world. Except for one time, when uninvited controversy knocked her door.
It was during the release of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan’s movie Dhoom 2. The actress faced legal threats. Unbelievable right? But why did she receive legal threats? Well, it was all because of a spiced kiss that she shared with his co-star Hrithik Roshan in the film.
Who knew that this scene would bring in controversies her way!
In an interview, the Miss World winner opened up on the controversy to Daily Mail saying,“I did it once prominently in the movie Dhoom and it was so topical, and you’ll be surprised, I mean I actually got a couple of notices, legal notices, from some people in the country turning around and saying ‘You are iconic, you’re an example to our girls, you have led your life in such an exemplary manner, they’re not comfortable with you doing this on-screen so why did you?’”
She then added, “And I was like wow, I’m just an actor, doing my job, and here I am being asked to offer an explanation for a couple of seconds in a two, three-hour piece of cinema.”
Aishwarya Rai also revealed that she rejected a couple of Hollywood projects as she wasn’t really comfortable with the idea of physical intimacy on the big screen. She continued, “A lot of actors have kissed before that movie; they continue to kiss on the screen until this very minute, but the public display is not that common in Indian culture. Even our actors, it’s very rare that actors look comfortable in our cinema on-screen kissing,”
How much ever you distant yourself from the controversy it comes running back to especially when you’re a superstar.
