Russell Peters Annoys Aishwarya Rai
Indo-Canadian comedian Russell Peters seems to have rubbed the most beautiful woman in Bollywood, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the wrong way with his comments recently. Russell, who has made a career out of taking potshots at everybody, offended Ash and her family, with his take on her acting abilities.
It happened a few days ago during the promotional event of his film Speedy Singhs which was held in Mumbai. At the event Russell joked, “Aishwarya is the biggest example of bad acting. She has proved it time and again that in Bollywood, people can become superstars just by having a pretty face.”
It was enough to miff Ash's supporters and send the producers of the film on a damage control mission. It has been reported that the stand-up comedian’s comments have hugely embarrassed Speedy Singh’s co-producer Ajay Virmani, who is also the father of the lead actor Vinay.
Ajay, who had hosted Ash in Toronto in the past, has apologized for the remarks. “I have no control over what Russell says. What he says is not reflective of our opinion or what the film is all about. Aishwarya is a fantastic actress and a legend. I apologise for his comments,” he said.
