‘It’s all a part of our destiny,’ say a lot of people, and they say it plenty of times. But only some change their destiny by going beyond their wildest dreams, just through their hard work and talent. However, not everything is hunky-dory in accepting your decision to pursue something. You have to put in a lot of effort and you may also face a lot of rejection. And that is true in everyone’s case. Even beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had to face rejections early on. You may have heard a lot of stories of the actress being rejected in movies, but this one is something different. If reports are to be believed, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had tried her hand at dubbing way before she participated in the Miss World pageant in 1994. However, the actress was rejected.
Well, the second thought that comes mind after knowing this is that everything happens for its own good. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan went to be crowned as the most beautiful woman in the world, which opened the gates of the Hindi Film industry for her. Aishwarya shares this story of rejection with her superstar father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan, who was also rejected for his huge baritone by All India Radio. The Piku actor had applied for a job there in his early days.
Last month, four members of the Bachchan family, including Amitabh, Aishwarya, Abhishek Bachchan and Aaradhya had tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Big B and Junior Bachchan were hospitalised first. Aishwarya and Aaradhya were also admitted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai, when their tests also returned positive. Aaradhya and Aishwarya recovered early on, followed by the superstar, and finally, Abhishek.
