Bhansali had initially thought of taking Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai for ‘Baajirao Mastani’, but the strained relationship between the two was the reason for not going ahead with it. In a recent interview with a web portal, when Aishwarya was asked as to when she will be working again with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the actress said that he had even approached her for ‘Padmaavat’, but he could not get her his Khilji.

She said that at the end of the day it is all about casting so when Bhansali could not get a Khilji for her, she could not end up doing the movie. Bhansali too had said in an interview that Aishwarya will now and forever be his muse. ‘Padmaavat’ finally went to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone along with Shahid Kapoor. After, much controversy surrounding the film, it was released in January this year.
