No more films with Salman: Ash

Mumbai, April 6
Popular actress Aishwarya Rai today said the Salman Khan chapter was a “nightmare” in her life and she would “not work with him anymore”.

“For the sake of my well-being, my sanity, my dignity and the self-respect of my family, I will not work with Salman Khan”, she told PTI here.

“The Salman Khan chapter was a nightmare in my life and I am thankful to God that it is over”, she said.

“I have maintained a dignified silence about him and his wrongdoings, but he (his family and friends) has repeatedly attacked the respect, dignity and pride of me and my family with irresponsible rumour-mongering”, she said.

“I stood by him enduring his alcoholic misbehaviour in the worst phases and in turn I was at the receiving end of his abuse (verbal, physical and emotional), infidelity and indignity. That is why like any other self-respecting woman I had ended my relationship with him almost two years ago”, she added.

Setting at rest speculations in a section of the press about starring with Salman in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Bajirao Mastani”, she said, “From the very first meeting with Bhansali, I had categorically declined to work with Salman”.

“I am making this clarification because for a very long time now, they have time and again tried to wreck my peace and sanity, both personally and professionally”, she added. PTI
