For a long time, the report of Aishwarya’s comeback film with Kakkar has been doing the round and now it seems things are finally happening.

After approaching Ash, Prahlad Kakkar has approached ex-miss universe Sushmita Sen for his directional debut and it is heard that Sush is ready to accept the offer. "If all goes well, we will have Sushmita and Aishwarya together in Happy Anniversary. It will be pleasure to work with them," said the director.

The rivalry between Sushmita Sen and Aishwarya Rai dates back to 1994 during the Miss India pageant when vivacious Sushmita walked away with the Miss India Universe crown and Aishwarya grabbed the Miss India World title. Through the beauties were rivals at the past, now they share no enmity. Sush and Ash are coming together first time for ‘Happy Anniversary’.

Meanwhile, Kakkad informed that Aishwarya currently is going through the script and the same will be given to Sushmita next week to receive her consent and after reading the script both the actresses will revert back soon. ‘Happy Anniversary’ is based on the anatomy of marriage and the film will be shot in South Africa.  Aishwarya and Abhishek will play husband and wife in ‘Happy Anniversary’ while, Sushmita will play a woman who gets trapped in a wrong marriage.

Today, Sush and Ash are leading two different lives. If Aishwarya is well settled with Abhishek Bachchan and blessed with daughter Aaradhya then Sushmita also happy in her lives with two adopted daughters. She is playing a doting single mother to two girls.
