When Hollywood film maker Wolfgang Petersen thought of casting a very beautiful actress for the character of Briseis for his epic war movie Troy, he possibly had only one name in his mind. If reports are to be believed, Aishwarya Rai was initially considered for the character, but she turned it down.
The character of Briseis later went to actress Rose Byrne. Troy’ had the Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt playing the lead role of Achilles, and the film was a major grosser at the box-office. But, for a few unknown reasons Aishwarya Rai did reject such a stunning offer at that time. Aishwarya had worked in several Hollywood films like The Mistress of Spices, The Last Legion, The Pink Panther 2, Provoked.
Aishwarya Rai is one such Bollywood actress, who’s received Worldwide fame, not only for her beauty, but also for her amazing acting abilities.
