Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s last outing, Fanney Khan, proved to be a damp squib. Her earlier films, Omung Kumar’s Sarbjit and Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa, did not exactly light up the Sources say that she is keen to pair up with hubby Abhishek Bachchan again on screen. She’s hoping that the two can create magic in Anurag Kashyap’s Gulab Jamun.
Following months of speculation about the power couple coming together for an Anurag Kashyap production, Rai has now confirmed to mid-day that the duo has greenlit Sarvesh Mewara-directed slice-of-life drama, Gulab Jamun, that will be produced by Phantom Films.
“AB [Abhishek] and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyan,” says the actor, adding that the project was offered to them one-and-a-half-years ago. “We had agreed on the idea then. However, it was around the same time that AB decided to take time-out. After the hiatus, he returned with Manmarziyan, which coincidentally is directed by Anurag Kashyap. That’s when the chatter around Gulab Jamun began again, and we finally came on board. It is a beautiful script, and we fit the narrative perfectly.”
Last seen in Raavan (2010), it took the couple eight years to give a nod to another outing. Known to be choosy with her scripts, one can assume that Rai turns all the more discerning when it involves hubby dearest.
