After hits like Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar, director Rakesh Roshan thought Aishwarya Rai looks older than his son Hrithik Roshan
We still remember Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan's sizzling chemistry and that hot, controversial lip-lock scene in Dhoom 2.
Not just that, we have also seen romance between them in Jodha Akbar, which made them one of the most popular pairs in Bollywood.
But, did you know, Hrithik Roshan's father Rakesh Roshan was not satisfied with the pairing. He once said in an interview that, he wouldn't be able to cast Aishwarya Rai opposite Hrithik Roshan in his movie as she looks older than Hrithik.
To that, Aishwarya had reacted and said, "It's strange that Rakesh Roshan thinks I look older than Hrithik. In fact, he's approached me for all his home productions," according to a report.
On the other hand, once, in an interview with rediff.com, Hrithik Roshan commented on Aishwarya's acting skills, he had said, “I have to say that I had judged her wrong. I felt foolish at that...Sometimes beauty just takes over so much of the other talents. She's someone with a lot more mettle than just what shows on her face.”
This change of thought happened during the Dhoom 2 shoot in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with Aishwarya. Hrithik had further added that he was fascinated to see her commitment, consistent focus and approach to work.
