Ash’s movies gifted to Pak PM


External Affairs of India Minister Pranab Mukherjee carried an unusual gift for Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani when he visited Pakistan last week — a box full of Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai’s movies. The 55-year-old prime minister lists

Aishwarya and Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan as his favourite film stars. He said it was a “pleasant surprise” when he unwrapped the gift and found a number of

DVDs of his favourite actress’ films.

During an appearance on ARY Oneworld TV channel’s morning show, Gillani said that Mukherjee’s aides must have found out about his fondness for Indian films and specially Rai’s movies since he had written in his book Chah-e-Yousaf Say Sada that watching her films on the laptop was one of his favourite pastimes when he was imprisoned by Pervez Musharraf regime during 2001 to 2006.
