Aishwarya performed for the song with Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan for Bunty Aur Babli. Shah Rukh Khan planned a gig around Bollywood heroines over the years.
Aishwarya Rai feels that the song Kajra Re was a family song and she will not dance to that song with anyone else.
With no option left, SRK scrapped the plan. Aishwarya Rai issued a press note refusing to work with Salman Khan in 2003 in which she stated, “For the sake of my well-being, sanity, my dignity and the self-respect of my family, I will not work with Salman Khan anymore. I maintained a dignified silence but he attacked the dignity of my family and me with irresponsible rumour mongering. I stood by him, enduring alcoholism, misbehaviour, and in turn I was at the receiving end of abuse, infidelity and indignity.”
