In an interview, Sanjay Dutt said that his sisters had warned him against trying to impress Aishwarya Rai or trying to fetch her phone number
This happened in 1993 when Sanjay Dutt (one of the top actors of the 90s) and Aishwarya Rai (still modelling then) had come together for a photo shoot for the filmy magazine Cineblitz.
The magazine had Sanjay and Aishwariya's interview. During those years, Sanjay used to be known as 'casanova of the 90s.
He revealed, "My sisters warned me before I came for this session. They told me 'Don't you woo her. Don't take her number. Don't send her flowers'."
He also talked about Aishwarya, "If she stood on (the) road, they'd all come to a screeching halt. If I did the same, they'd run over me."
This issue hit the stands way before she debuted in films or won Miss World's crown. And Sanjay knew about her already, which left Aishwarya surprised. Here is what he said, "Hey! Who doesn't know about her? Look I saw her in the Pepsi ad. In fact everyone did. Actually, my sisters like her a lot. They find her very beautiful. They've met her."
Sanjay went gaga over Aishwarya's Pepsi ad. Here is what he said, "Who's that beautiful woman!" However, Sanjay didn't find Aishwarya 'hot'. Cineblitz had also quoted Aishwarya as saying, "He (Sanjay Dutt) said that I'm not hot. Oh God! What's going to happen to me?"
