The actor wants to be known as more than just someone who looks like Aishwarya Rai.
She may not like it, but the fact is that Sneha Ullal continues to be known as the girl who was introduced as a lookalike of Aishwarya Rai, in a film with Salman Khan, shortly after his breakup from Ash.
Years later, Sneha maintains that the lookalike tag has become old and is not heard often these days. “I’m glad that people don’t refer to me like that much – it was getting boring seeing the same stuff written about me that I was cast in Lucky because of the strong resemblance,” she says.
Despite being launched by Salman Khan and Sohail Khan, subsequently, it appeared that Sneha was not supported by her mentors to further her career. “There was nothing more that Salman could have done for me at that point of time. He has and will always support me. But he realized then that I was just a kid and couldn’t be pushed too much.
As a launch vehicle, Lucky was amazing and I believe I gave it my all. But if I had been launched now, things would have been different, as I know enough to survive in the industry and maybe even give it my 200%.
