A section of the social media inspired by gossip fanzines had spread a rumour recently stating that Aishwarya Rai had tried to commit suicide.
Rumours originated on Sunday that the actress had had an overdose of tranquilizers. A certain website from Pakistan even mentioned her as dead. Interestingly another Pakistani website ‘killed’ Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalitha, a day before she actually did.
Interestingly a very old picture of Aishwarya was also being circulated. The picture was when Ash was being admitted to the Hinduja hospital after she was rushed there from the shooting of her film Khakhee in 2003 where she suffered an accident.
All the rumours were put to rest when Aishwarya turned up at Manish Malhotra’s 50 birthday bash with husband Abhishek Bachchan. She did not even give an official statement out.
A denial did come immediately, but from sources close to the Pink star Amitabh Bachchan, stating that the actress is in fact in the pink of her health and every such story is a rumour.
Going back to the root of the grapevine; the Bachchans have not been very vocal in support of Aishwarya’s last film for Karan Johar – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The film has been an above average product both in terms of quality as well as box office performance.
The bone of contention however were bold scenes performed by Aishwarya with co-star Ranbir Kapoor which allegedly did not go down well with the Bachchans. Anyway, all is well.
