Aishwarya Rai Refusedd To Act With Brad Pitt And Will Smith

She might have been touted as India’s answer to Hollywood, but smothering siren Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has rejected a score of top notch foreign projects for her commitment to Bollywood.

Believe it or not, but the sizzling beauty turned down movies like ‘Troy’, ‘Hancock’ and ‘Seven Pounds’ in the past, that had some of the most awe-striking international filmmakers and actors.

Confirming the news, Aishwarya said, "It wasn`t about an attitude I had, or any inverted ideas about working overseas, it was simply about scheduling. I just didn`t have the time".

The actress is reported to have been courted relentlessly by Hollywood filmmakers. Director Brett Ratner wanted her for ‘Rush Hour’ and Wolfgang Petersen pursued her for ‘Troy’.

Talking about the films she was offered, Ash said, "Michael Douglas came to India and did a press conference where he confessed that he had brought a script my way. And Will Smith was generous enough to be persistent twice over, for ‘Hancock’ and ‘Seven Pounds’.”

The 36-year-old actress said no to the Brad Pitt starrer ‘Troy’ as she was not comfortable with the intimate scenes.

"One of the reasons I declined ‘Troy’ was that there were some very explicit lovemaking scenes in the script, and a lot of kisses. I was like, `Oh my God! I`m not sure`. I couldn`t imagine being comfortable with it," said Aishwarya.
