This is a pretty old topic, no real point in discussing it right now, but we are amazed by the number of e-mails we receive on this much controversial couple. Questions like
- Why did Aishwarya dump Vivek?
- Why didn’t she acknowledge their relationship?
- Did Ash cheat on Vivek and date Abhishek?
- Did she ditch him because his career wasn’t going great guns?
- Why did Ash instigate Vivek to hold that infamous press conference against Salman Khan?
Such and many more questions are quite a regular in our mail boxes. But like most of you, we too aren’t aware of why the relationship broke. But after some research, we did get some info from the Times of India. Hope it answers all your questions!!
From a source who claims to be Ash’s close friend, here is what she had to say
Question : Vivek bailed Aishwarya out from Salman Khan, why then did she not acknowledge their relationship? Why did she treat him like a stranger?
Source: She has always stood by Vivek as a friend. They’ve attended award shows and charitable functions as a couple, travelled together in India and abroad and has also worked together in Kyon… Ho Gaya Na, which was directed by Vivek’s friend Sameer Karnick.
Allegation: Ash dumped Vivek after his movies fared poorly at the box office and started dating Abhishek. Why?
Source: This is utter rubbish. The relationship ended six months ago and Home Delivery was released much later, in December 2005. Aishwarya never made it obvious that she is more popular than Vivek in India and abroad. She worked with Abhishek in Dhai Akshar Prem Ke in 2000, much before she knew Vivek. She is very close to the Bachchans. She is certainly not dating Abhishek. Incidentally, Abhishek is a friend of Vivek.
Question: Ash didn’t give a much-deserved clarification to Vivek before splitting up with him and he had to read about it in the newspapers. Why?
Source: Ash had categorically told Vivek that she is not going to marry him. Ash did talk to Vivek about breaking off the relationship. The reasons for their breakup isbest known to them. And no, she doesn’t owe any clarification to the media. I know the reason for the breakup but would not like to comment on it since it’s personal. She likes Vivek as a friend and she doesn’t want to say anything negative about him. But then, if Vivek chooses to hallucinate about a relationship that was long over, it isn’t Ash’s fault, is it?
Aishwarya Rai is a Bachchan now and very Happily married. Just forget this incident and move on guys!
