Aishwarya Rai was not happy when Abhishek Bachchan was offered a role in The Sky Is Pink with Priyanka Chopra
It was said that superstar wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was unhappy with the offer given to her husband Abhishek Bachchan by Sonali Bose's film The Sky Is Pink, which is based on Aisha Chaudhary's life.
The movie was released last year on October 11 and the role which Abhishek was offered to play the role of Aisha's father, which later Farhan Akhtar did. Priyanka Chopra played the role of Aisha's mother.
Aisha, who has been a motivational speaker, was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13 and died at the tender age of 18 in 2015.
However, the news is that Abhi rejected the offer of Sonali as his wife Aishwarya was quite skeptical about it. The movie's major reason focused on the mother and daughter relationship, where the mother was Priyanka and daughter was Zaira Wasim. And the father’s role was sort of negotiable.
Aishwarya felt that her husband should play a strong character like he did in Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyan.
It is also reported that it was Aishwarya, who was to play Priyanka’s role in the movie. And ever since Aishwarya was replaced with Priyanka, Abhishek and her relationship allegedly turned cold.
