According to reports, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s family is a bit upset, due to her bold avatar in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (ADHM). The married diva shares a kiss on the silver screen with B-towns chocolate boy, Ranbir Kapoor.
The reports also mention that her father-in-law, legendary Bollywood actor, Amitabh Bachan personally approached Karan Johar to remove the scene where both exchange the kiss. Despite the scene now being edited out of the movie, Mr. Bachan is not happy about his daughter-in-law and her younger co-star’s interaction after the clip was viewed by the family.
A source told Pinkvilla, “When the scenes were being shot, somewhere the makers had the doubt that there would be an objection. But since, there was no problem when the narration happened, one assumed that the intimate scenes wouldn’t create any issue. But when the teaser released, like the audience, even Aishwarya’s family was stunned to see her bold avatar.”
“He was upset with Aishwarya’s steamy scenes and was fuming when the teaser came out. Senior Bachchan, Abhishek and Aishwarya also had a tiff that day. Abhishek is a doting husband and he didn’t want things to go public and hence as a formality, shared the teaser. But Big B doesn’t seem to get affected by such things. He didn’t budge from his stand and didn’t prominently share the teaser.”
Before the kiss became the talk of the town, Mr. Bachan supported Mrs. Bachan by sharing porters, teasers, and trailers of her previous projects, including Sarbjit and Jazba, however ADHM has not received such encouragement from the star as yet.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is set to release in October.
