Promoting upcoming films on TV shows has become a trend these days. Keeping with the times, the Guzaarish team wanted to promote the film on Bigg Boss but Salman has said no to it.
Buzz is that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish was short-listed for promotion on Bigg Boss. But when host Sallu came to know, he made it clear that he won’t share the stage with the Guzaarish cast which comprises his ex-girlfriend Aishwarya and Hrithik.
A source said, “The marketing team of Guzaarish and the channel were in talks and everything was finalised. Both the production house and the channel were keen that the Guzaarish team appeared on the show. No one realised that it would actually be a very awkward situation for both Salman Khan, the host of the show and Aishwarya Rai, the leading lady of the film, given their past. Obviously, when Salman learnt about it, he immediately refused to comply.”
After working with Bhansali in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Saawariya, and Khamoshi, Sallu hold Bhansali in high-esteem but wants to avoid the unpleasant situation of bumping into his ex on the show.
According to a source, “But to be fair, allowing the Guzaarish team in would have landed Sallu in a situation he never wanted to be in. It’s a thing of the past and both Ash and Sallu have consciously avoided meeting one another.”
With Salman’s hosting the show, it seems unlikely that Ash would be able to promote her film on Bigg Boss.
