Everybody in the entertainment world is well aware of the romantic relationship that Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan once had. The couple made headlines every now and then, but ended up with a very ugly breakup with Aishwarya even accusing Salman of domestic violence. As with most relationships that Salman Khan gets into, Aishwarya’s relationship with Salman too was controversial that ended with Aishwarya Rai walking out on him and on rebound trying to start a new one with Vivek Oberoi.
Aishwarya Rai is famous not only in India but across the globe. She is as much known for her beauty as she for her acting skills. In fact, in 2014, Aishwarya was felicitated with the award of being the Most Successful Miss World ever. But Aishwarya’s road to success was not a smooth one.
Having acted in several Hindi and Tamil films, Aishwarya got the opportunity to act in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. While this film turned to be a milestone in Ash’s (as she is famously known as) career, it was also the beginning of a traumatic personal life for her.
It was on this set that Ash met Salman Khan and romantic sparks started to fly soon. They soon began to be spotted together in public events and functions. They started dating each other and even accepted to being in relationship. Everything was happy and fun in their lives till one fateful day when Salman confessed about cheating on her and having an affair with another woman.
That was it. The actress abruptly broke up with Salman. But not so Salman, who was so madly in love with Ash. He started stalking her and life turned hell for Ash. In fact, once Ash’s parents even lodged a complaint against Salman for allegedly vandalizing their property.
At about this time Shah Rukh was shooting his film ‘Chalte Chalte’ with Ash as the lead actress. One day Salman Khan turned up at the set and created such a shameful ruckus that Shah Rukh had no option but to drop Ash and replace her with Rani Mukherjee. Needless to say, this episode left Ash highly embarrassed.
In an interview in 2002, which made it to the headlines then, Ash confessed that Salman had even hit her on the occasion. She even thanked her stars for not getting a permanent scar on her face. Despite all these complications in her personal life, Ash continued with her work and relentlessly worked hard to achieve whatever she is today.
Aishwarya Rai is now a successful actor, a diligent mother and a doting wife to husband Abhishek Bachchan. The Bachchan-bahu still has the spark to mesmerize audiences with her angelic smile and divine grace.
