What is the common link between television star Sushant Singh Rajput aka Manav of Pavitra Rishta & Bollywood actress & Bachchan Bahu Aishwarya Rai? Both of them were a part of the Australian Common-wealth Games held in 2006. Aishwarya was one of the lead dancers in the closing ceremony, whereas Sushant was a background dancer training under Shiamak Davar. Not only this, Sushant was the dancer who had lifted the former Miss World in the dance performance.
Apart from this, the other connection between the two is that they recently shot for an advertisement of a soap brand, which Aishwarya has been endorsing in the past along with hubby, Abhishek Bachchan. Though Aishwarya shot this ad sans Abhishek , Sushant came in with his on-screen wife & real life girlfriend, TV actress Ankita Lokhande. When this connection was revealed to the Bachchan Bahu, she was surprised to hear this. The reel & real life couple, Sushant & Ankita are extremely happy on this endorsement, as they got an opportunity to share screen space with the soon-to-be-mother, Aishwarya Rai, whom they termed to be was very courteous, when asked about their experience on working with the diva.
The commercial will be Aishwarya’s first commercial after the news of her pregnancy was made public & her baby bump is clearly visible in the ad. She is expected to deliver the baby in November.
