Recently, during the promotions of Fanney Khan, Bollywood Hungama asked her if she was apprehensive about playing sister to Shah Rukh Khan in Josh. She made a surprising revelation while replying to the poser.

Aishwarya said: “I think the cast was meant to be Aamir Khan and Salman Khan at one point and eventually it became Shah Rukh and I think Aamir at some point was to play Chandrachur (Singh)’s role. So the cast kept changing at different points in time. So I had said yes to Mansoor.”
