Will SRK and Aishwarya Team up Once Again
In the past, the two were seen in ‘Josh’, where they played loving siblings and in ‘Mohabbatein’ as lovers. The two were very well accepted as a pair. However, they never teamed up again and this can be credited to the much talked about fall out they had on the sets of Shah Rukh Khan’s production, ‘Chalte Chalte’.
Aishwarya was cast opposite him, but during that period, she was in a relationship with Salman Khan. He would keep dropping on the sets and the crew would get troubled, after which, Shahrukh Khan replaced her with Rani Mukerji. She still holds that as a grudge against him and she tries to maintain a distance where Shah Rukh Khan is concerned.
However, rumor has it that the two actors might star in Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’. There has been no official announcement for the same, but Farah is keen to have Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in her film. In that case, the pairing will make it the most anticipated film. The film will also star Abhishek Bachchan. She has also roped in South Indian superstar Prithviraj and Boman Irani for the film.
Buzz is that, they have already booked a resort in Dubai for the shooting of ‘Happy New year’ which will start in August. Even though the leading lady is yet to be finalized, the rest of the crew have already planned some of the places where they need to shoot.
The film will also mark the coming together of Farah Khan and Shahrukh Khan. After their fall out, Farah Khan went ahead and directed Akshay Kumar in ‘Tees Maar Khan’.
Apart from this, the film will also mark the comeback of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan post her pregnancy and the birth of her daughter. Aishwarya has been on a break since the birth of her daughter on 16 November 2011. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been a hands-on mother, keeping her entire time reserved for her daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan.
Shahrukh Khan is currently caught up with the sixth edition of the Indian Premiere League, where his team Kolkata Knight Riders is playing. And he is also shooting for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Chennai Express’ with Deepika Padukone, which is slated for release later this year
