Aishwarya Rai and Shahrukh Khan.
Aishwariya Rai had acted in few films opposite Shahrukh Khan but whenever they have acted together they had created a lasting impression in the minds of viewers. In the film Josh, they were seen together.
Although Josh was an action thriller, where Shahrukh Khan played the role of a mafia who was involved in unlawful activities, Aishwarya played her romantic part opposite Chandrachud Singh. She was the sister of Shahrukh and had an affair with Chandrachudh Singh. The songs in the film including “mere khayalon ki malika” became very successful.
In Mohabbatein, Shahrukh Khan played the role of an academician who joined an institution and brought a different dimension in the life of students in that institution. Aishwarya Rai made a significant contribution with her romantic performance in the film. Important role were played by the students of the institution and their affairs blossomed into successful endings.
Aishwarya had the biggest challenge in the role of parvati, in the film Devdas, where Shahrukh Khan played the role of Devdas. It was a challenge taken up by Sanjay Leela Banshali, because the story of Devdas written by Sarat Chandra Chatterji, had been picturised a number of times both in bollywood films and Bengali films. Besides Dilip Kumar was brilliant in his role of Devdas directed by Bimal Roy, in 1955, along with Motilal, who provided a memorable performance in his role of Chunilal.
But Snajay Leela Banshali, modified the story keeping in mind the modern style of living in Indian villages. Aishwarya was brilliant in her performance in a role which Suchitra Sen had played at one time. She displayed the submissiveness of a Bengali girl in the early 19th century. Her lips in the song “dil dola re”, with Madhuri Dixit who played the role of Chandramukhi, became a big hit. Shreya Ghoshal sang most of the songs in the film and became a star after Devdas.
The viewers expect even better performance from Aishwarya and Shahrukh in the films in future.
