When Aishwarya Rai revealed why she refused to do Brad Pitt’s Troy.

Did you know Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was offered Brad Pitt-starrer Troy and she refused to be a part of it? Yes, you read that right. Aishwarya was approached to play Briseis in the Brad Pitt starrer but the actor turned down the role.

Aishwarya said that back then, she had committed to a lot of films in Bollywood, adding that “there are so many things I am not sure I will be comfortable with in the long run.” Troy was directed by Wolfgang Petersen and starred Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom and Dian Kruger, among others. The role of Brisies went to Rose Byrne after Aishwarya refused.
