Mumbai, March 7 (IANS) Bollywood’s hottest couple Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai refused to represent LG as brand ambassadors for all their products across-the-board. The company had made them an eye-popping offer.
Reason? He didn’t want to be even remotely unfaithful to another cell-phone manufacturing company.
A source close to the Bachchans said: “LG was very keen to have Abhishek and Aishwarya to endorse their entire range of products across the line. It was a tempting and lucrative offer.
“LG’s range of products included cell-phones and Abhishek is already endorsing Motorala cell phones. So he had to decline the offer. But he has received a letter from the company saying they would love to have him and his wife as brand ambassadors any time they so wish.”
The Abhishek-Aishwarya pair won’t be seen in any advertisement at the moment, but they are coming together in Mani Ratnam’s next venture that goes to the floor as soon as Abhishek returns from Miami after filming Karan Johar’s home production, “Dostana”.
The film is being directed by Tarun Mansukhani and also stars Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham.
At the moment Abhishek is working 20 hours a day to wrap up Rakeysh Mehra’s “Delhi 6″, which completed a two-month schedule in Jaipur and is now being shot in Mumbai.
