Real Reason Why Ash Said No to Chiru!

One time-tested trick that all Bollywood people use to politely turn down a film is to hike their price, so that they become untouchable.

Recently, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan used the same trick to say no to megastar's film "Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy".

Talk from Bollywood is that she now wants to be seen on screen with younger heroes and not with old and ageing heroes.

Some time back, Ash refused to be paired up with Madhavan in her new Hindi film. She made the producers sign on a younger Raj Kumar Rao as the lead opposite her. While Madhavan is in his late 40s, Raj Kumar Rao is in his late 30s.

Goes without saying, when she was not keen on being paired with Madhavan who is being hailed at the new Greek god, she will be against playing wife to 60-plus Chiranjeevi in the period drama. So, she hiked her remuneration to Rs 9 crore to say no in a nice way.

In the past, she did act with senior stars like Rajinikanth, but that was at a time when she was at the peak of her career and she was calling the shots.

Now that she is in her second innings, she is struggling to make an impact at the box-office. This time around, she is consciously pairing up with younger heroes like Ranbir Kapoor.
