For those who have seen The Last Legion, it’s not fresh news that recent Oscar winner Colin Firth has a Bollywood connection. The actor who starred in the movie is said to have kept in close contact with his co-star Aishwarya Bachchan. The connection between the two has been brought to centre-stage what with the news that Firth has taken up Bachchan’s invitation to go to India.
Details of a pending trip are being kept under wraps but it seems it has been on the cards for some time. The two caught up at the Oscars recently and undoubtedly Bachchan was all cheers when Firth was announced as winner of the Best Actor. It is rumoured that Bachchan raised a glass to Firth and his Oscar win at the after-party and the two are said to have talked about connecting while the actress is in Los Angeles later this month.
Bachchan was accompanied on the red carpet with hubby Abhishek in tow. Also seen gracing the red carpet were Mallika Sherawat and Ashutosh Gowariker. The Indian presence at the awards ceremony has been “missed” by popular outlets and this has caused somewhat of an uproar within media circles both within the sub-continent and internationally.
As for Colin Firth’s trip to India, well we will have to wait and watch. Maybe while he is in India, he will sign a film opposite Aishwarya, fans can only hope.
