Aishwarya Rai Bachchan reportedly turned down a supporting role in the 2004 historical epic, Troy, because she was uncomfortable shooting intimate scenes with Brad Pitt.
According to a Pinkvilla report, Aishwarya was offered the role of Briseis in the film, directed by Wolfgang Petersen and starring Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom, Dian Kruger, among others. The role eventually went to Rose Byrne after Aishwarya passed.
Aishwarya has appeared in several Hollywood films, including The Pink Panther 2, Pride & Prejudice, The Mistress of Spices. Troy was a major box office success, which went on to make close to $500 million worldwide, and was nominated for one Academy Award.
