|We recently saw Aishwarya Rai being launched as the face of a new real estate venture. However, the story goes that a top actress was first approached for the plum ad deal!
Actually, it was Katrina Kaif, who was supposed to sign the contract, but what went wrong?
According to reports, Katrina Kaif had apparently signed the contract for the advertisement deal with the real estate giant, but she was dropped without her knowledge, and the deal was lapped up by none other than Aishwarya Rai.
Obviously, the news did not go down well with Katrina Kaif, who is very upset with the way the construction company dealt with her, almost keeping her in the dark about the development, claim sources.
“Ash’s name was announced with great fanfare. But it was actually Kat who had been approached first and she had even signed the dotted lines…,” a source is quoted as saying by a tabloid.
As per the tabloid, the construction company doesn’t deny that they had approached Katrina Kaif with the contract, and that there were discussions, but they couldn’t proceed further because their brand positioning clashes with Katrina’s.
Thus Katrina Kaif’s loss was Aishwarya Rai’s gain! But, what makes us wonder is why Katrina couldn’t bag the deal as she is a popular face when endorsement deals are concerned. Is she losing her shine?
