Pak Prime Minister is an Ash fan!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's beauty is legendary. And now, the newest man to fall for it is none other than Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.


According to a report in Pakistani daily, Urdu Express, Gilani got addicted to Ash's films when he was imprisoned in the Adila jail, Rawalpindi, between 2001 and 2006. Gilani would get special permission from jail authorities to get Aishwarya Rai [Images] film DVDs so that he could watch them in prison.


This is not the first time that Pakistani politicians have been bowled over by Bollywood personalities. When General Pervez Musharraf [Images] had visited India, he met Shah Rukh Khan [Images] and Rani Mukerji in New Delhi.


Before him, Pakistani army chief General Zia-Ul-Haq was a friend and fan of Shatrughan Sinha.
