Once Hrithik Roshan thought Aishwarya Rai was talentless but later admitted that he misjudged her. Read on...
Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan have done some amazing films together including Dhoom 2, Jodha Akbar and Guzaarish, which made them one of the most successful onscreen pairs in Bollywood.
But there was a time when Hrithik used to think that Aishwarya is merely a “pretty face without any talent”.
Yes, you heard it right. During the promotion of his movie Dhoom 2, Hrithik had acknowledged in public that he misjudged Aishwarya.
In an interview with rediff.com, the actor 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 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.
Not just Hrithik, in an interview with popular entertainment journalist Subhash K Jha, Aishwarya said, “Hrithik has been a special co-star. We've shared a fantastic rapport that gets translated into wonderful chemistry on screen.”
She considers Hrithik a good friend. “We never came around to working together in a movie until Dhoom 2. It was a very new genre for me. Doing Dhoom 2 was a pleasure because of that friendship,” she said.
