It was reported on July 29, 2012 that Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor took a dig at former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan saying that Ash belongs to a different generation.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar’s first choice for Hindi movie “Heroine”. But because of her pregnancy she was later replaced by Kareena Kapoor.
So recently, when a journalist asked Kareena how different the film would have come out if Aishwarya was the lead instead of her, Kareena Kapoor replied, “It is very unfair to compare us, and we’re from two different generations.”
It may be noted that Aishwarya Rai was born on November 1, 1973 and made her acting debut with Tamil film “Iruvar” in 1997.
Kareena Kapoor was born on September 21, 1980. She made her Bollywood debut in 2000 with “Refugee”.
So it’s unfair to say that there is a generation change in just three years in Bollywood.
Kareena Kapoor is herself dating actor Saif Ali Khan, who is ten years elder to her which may make him older generation as per her opinion itself.
Wonder what she has to say!
