Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the Bollywood diva, is among the most beautiful actresses in Indian cinema history. She was a leading lady of her era, regardless of whether we focus on her beauty or acting prowess. She still exudes the same grace, style, and aura that made her famous in the good old days, despite being 49 years old. The Hindi film industry was led by Aishwarya Rai at one point, and there’s an intriguing story about her from that era.
Rajkumar Santoshi brought together a star-studded cast for his neo-noir action movie Khakee in 2004. Stars like Tusshar Kapoor, Atul Kulkarni, Prakash Raj, Tanuja, Aishwarya Rai, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and Amitabh Bachchan are among the film’s cast members. Although the movie was a financial success, viewers fell in love with Akshay and Aishwarya primarily due to their on-screen romance. However, everything took a drastic turn when an industry-shattering article about Akshay and Aishwarya was published in the renowned celebrity magazines Star and Style.
Aishwarya Rai discussed the controversial event during her appearance on Karan Johar’s celebrity conversation programme Koffee With Karan. The incident occurred during the making of Khakee, and it was stated by Star and Style magazine that she was caught red-handed by Raveena with Akshay. Aishwarya disclosed the whole episode and said she sued the magazine for publishing such an untrue account of her and Akshay. Aishwarya withheld the identity of the actress whom Raveena exposed as having slept with Akshay. She recalled the same thing, saying, “Well, at the very beginning of my career, I was very furious, and I had taken, Star and Style to court, because they had carried an article when the whole world knew who it was and not me. But it was presented that I was caught with Akshay Kumar (laughs), and Raveena had come and apparently blasted me when it was absolutely untrue. Everybody knew who that was; it wasn’t me.”
