Aishwarya to romance Shahrukh, Abhishek in HNY
After a brief sabbatical, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is planning to return to silver screen and speculation is high that she might make her comeback with her husband Abhishek Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan starrer ‘Happy New Year’. ‘Happy New Year’ is Farah Khan’s film and there has been a buzz that the choreographer cum filmmaker approached Aishwarya to star in the film. For a long time, Farah was in hunt of an actress for her new movie.
Aishwarya and Shahrukh was last seen in Sanjay Leela
Bhansali’s ‘Devdas’. The actress has apparently shown interest in the film, but
she is yet to read the script and give her nod. According to a source, “Aishwarya

the story outline, since her husband Abhishek Bachchan has a prominent role in

If on one hand, speculation is rife that Ash has been approached for the movie then on the other hand, the director of HNY Farah refuted the report of roping in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She sticks to the report that she is in hunt of a new face and she would not cast an established star.
Farah says, “I’m meeting new faces every day. I’m looking out for a new girl who will match up with all the four heroes. So, I have not signed anyone so far, and all the rumours are baseless. There’s a new name every day. The movie will go as per schedule and I will find a fresh face for it.”
Ask her about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being considered for her movie and Farah says, “No. Like I said, I’ve not signed anyone. If I go to their office, it’s because I’m meeting Abhishek. We’re working together and have things to discuss.”
Farah confirmed that apart from Abhishek Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan, it would have two more male leads.
