Yes you heard it right! The hottest gossip we hear is that Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai have agreed to come together to make a special appearance for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s new daily soap on Starplus -“Saraswatichandra”.
Aishwarya Rai, we hear, has given her nod to shoot a special cameo with the Dabangg star Salman Khan in a critical love scene also featuring the lead actors Gautam Rode and Jennifer Winget.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a close friend of both Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Infact, he wanted to cast them together in a film entitled “Bajirao Mastani”. However, that project never took off as both of them refused to act opposite each other. One may recall that Salman and Ash faced a rather public and ugly breakup in 2002. Nobody thought Aishwarya and Salman would ever work together again but only Sanjay could make the unbelievable and impossible – POSSIBLE!
Industry sources tell us that director and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali originally wanted to rope in Shahrukh Khan and Rani Mukherji for the cameo but due to date conflicts, they were unable to commit to the schedule. After pondering much over various options, he decided to call up Salman Khan, who is always willing to help out his friends. A little birdie has also chirped to us that Ash, who was first reluctant to do this scene on Saraswatichandra, agreed when Papa Amitabh Bachchan insisted that she should overlook her previous enmity and do it for Sanjay’s sake.
Sources close to them also told us that initially, there was a high possibility that Ash and Salman would shoot the scene separately but Sanjay finally convinced them to act together. Afterall, Saraswatichandra is a love story and the show does radically remind us of “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” starring Ash and Salman. So it would not have made sense if they did not appear in the same frame at the same time. But fans can truly rejoice because although it will just be for a 10 minute cameo, we will get to re-visit the Nandini-Sameer romance.
The episode will be telecasted end of the month in a Maha-episode and the entire country will be certainly excited to see them together, once again.
So guys, do watch out for Saraswatichandra on Starplus, every weeknight, Singapore time 10pm. We will let you know the exact date of telecast for the special episode. Watch this space!
And by the way, the above story is a creation of our wild imagination.
Happy April Fools’ Day to you!
Now, now be a sport.
