A candid Emraan Hashmi had put the cat among the pigeons when he called Aishwarya Rai ‘plastic’ on Karan Johar’s show ‘Koffee With Karan’ earlier this year. On the show Emraan had called Aamir Khan ‘boring’, Mahesh Bhatt ‘an extortionist’ and Ash ‘plastic’.
Though there was no backlash from the Bachchans, it goes without saying that Emraan hadn’t won many admirers in Bollywood with his comment.
Now, the maverick actor has apparently done a turnaround, saying he didn’t mean what he said on 'Koffee With Karan'.
“I respect and like everyone I ripped off on that show. I'm a big fan of Aishwarya. I watched Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam five times, and it (the answers) was for the hamper, and if you have someone as smug as Mahesh Bhatt sitting in front of you, you've got to show him who's the boss,” Emraan Hashmi is quoted as saying by NDTV. He had appeared on Karan Johar’s show along with his uncle Mahesh Bhatt.
Emraan Hashmi is presently looking forward to his film Raja Natwarlal. He recently shot for a song titled ‘Flip Your Collar’ for the film at a mall.
