    Vrinda Rai had also tried her hands on script writing back in 2003. Remember Aishwarya Rai's Dil Ka Rishta, co-starring Arjun Rampal? Well, the movie was written by Vrinda Rai. Not like, Mrs Rai had a burning ambition to script a film. But after Aish's family had discussions over a lot of ideas, they asked Vrinda Rai to chose one. Aish was the first person she mentioned her story idea. Upon narrating the story to Ramesh Taurani, he asked Vrinda Rai to put it in screenplay format.

    Another interesting trivia about Vrinda Rai is, in 2010, while shooting in Karjat for Vipul Shah's Action Replayy, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's mom would land on the sets with a huge pitcher of kokum juice. Though it was meant for her daughter, who featured in the film with Akshay Kumar, the star mom would distribute glasses to everyone. Says Vipul, "The only person who would be completely unaffected with the heat was Ash. That's when we all realised about her kokum juice. We all became regulars to beat the heat." Sweet gesture, isn't it?
