How Aishwarya Rai is making Deepika's life difficult?

Deepika Padukone asked to perform like Aishwarya Rai

The folk dance 'Dholi Taro' in 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' performed by the beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan; is now hunting Deepika Padukone.

The super fit Bollywood actress Deepika is facing the challenge of performing a similar kind of folk dance in her upcoming movie which is tentatively named 'Ram Leela'.

Performing a dance may not be difficult for Deepika as she is the only actress in her genre who is trained in classical dance.

Though trained in Bharatnatyam Deepika may have had a tough time when she was asked to perform like Aishwarya Rai.

Deepika must have been thrilled when Sanjay Leela Bhansali cast her in 'Ram Leela' but was not aware of his adulation of Ash.

A taskmaster Bhansali wanted Deepika to perform Garba choreographed by the same choreographers of 'Dholi Taro'. One direction that Bhansali gave Deepika was - make it as good as Ash's number.

The constant pressure of being compared with Aishwarya has taken its toll on Deepika.

Many might not know that Deepika made her acting debut in a Kannada film 'Aishwarya' before her blockbuster 'Om Shanti Om' opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

Aishwariya Rai is her idol and to be like Ash Deepika has a long way to go in her acting career.

Looks like it's not just the folk dance, the name Aishwarya itself is chasing Deepika for long now.
