ASH IN CASH SCANDAL
Aishwarya Rai, the gorgeous beauty of J P Dutta's 'Umrao Jaan', faces the biggest scandal in her off screen life today following the arrival of a parcel in her name containing currency worth 23,000 euros. The actress who made her presence in Bollywood after a couple of years with 'Umrao Jaan' is upset with this. The parcel contains a DVD player, Nokia phone and other electronics along with the currency. The customs authorities have seized it during their random raid. These officials are stunned to find the name of the actress on the parcel that has come from the Netherlands.
Aishwarya can breathe easy as no case has been filed against her but she will have to explain the matter to custom officials in coming days. The custom department has given her sufficient time to narrate her side of the story. The identity of the consignor has been kept secret as the parcel weighs around 16.5 kg. It is being said that it can be a malicious intention of her professional or personal rival to malign her image. Aishwarya is already having a tough time as her recent release 'Umrao Jaan' has failed to attract adequate audiences and has been poorly received by the media. This controversy has worsened her business prospects at a time when she is passing through an acid test in her forthcoming films 'Dhoom 2' and 'Guru' in coming days.
