Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor's sizzling photoshoot for a glossy magazine hasn't gone down too well with the leading lady's family. Apparently, the Bachchan household isn't pleased with the series of intimate photos the actors have posed for.
Aishwarya and Ranbir share quite a few passionate scenes in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which were asked to be chopped out by Amitabh Bachchan as he didn't approve of them. And now, he has issues with the viral photos from the magazine shoot.
"Now, they are mighty upset with Aishwarya after the recent photoshoot pictures with Ranbir have gone viral. Big B didn't like Aishwarya taking this bold step ahead in her career. He has supported her for Jazbaa and Sarbjit but he isn't willing to give in to ADHM at all," a source informed DNA.
This news comes months after there were reports that the senior star is furious about Aishwarya agreeing to do such steamy scenes. However, the rumours were later quashed by a source close to the family who told Deccan Chronicle that "they are a family of professional actors and very conscious of their responsibility towards the reputation of the family. No one needs to intervene in Aishwarya's professional commitments. She knows what to do."
Meanwhile, here's what is happening with the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Karan Johar has released a sincere video on why his film, ADHM, should be allowed to run freely at theatres. In the clip, the filmmaker appeared deeply concerned about the country's current political climate, but also explained that at the time he was filming ADHM, efforts were being made to establish peaceful relationships with the neighbouring country.
"Going forward, I would like to say that of course I wouldn't engage with talent from the neighbouring country given the circumstance. Over 300 Indian people in my crew have put their blood, sweat and tears into my film. I don't think it is fair for them to face turbulence on account of other fellow Indians. I respect the Army ... I condemn any form of terrorism," he added.
