Yes, I am doing Mani and Sanjay Gupta’s film, Aishwarya


There has been a lot of speculation about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback movies and the diva has finally confirmed doing two movies, one with Mani Ratnam and the other with Sanjay Gupta.

Aishwarya finally confirms doing Sanjay’s action thriller, she said, “Yes, and Mani’s film as well. The choices are about working with these film-makers and on those subjects, because I find them exciting. I’m not giving in to the pressure and expectation of questions about what my comeback film will be”.

Aishwarya will be seen opposite husband and Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan in Mani Ratnam’s next, “I both feel that apart from being an exemplary film-maker, it’s just a pleasure to work with him. There’s something he is always exploring creatively, and it makes the entire team want to push themselves. Working with him is exciting and inspiring, and we are like family”.

Ash-Abhi was seen in Mani Ratnam’s blockbuster ‘Guru’.

Speaking about her Bollywood journey so far, Aishwarya said,  “Even prior to my festival experience, I started with Iruvar (1997) with Mani (Ratnam; film-maker). I always thought I was trying to chart a new course than what’s predictable for the leading lady back home. That’s been my journey so far, and it continues in that sense. I don’t believe in the term ‘comeback’, because although I took a maternity break, I didn’t go anywhere else. I’m still part of the same turf, going to the studio, doing endorsements and attending festivals. I’m doing everything that I chose to do during the first two-and-a-half years of my child’s life. And I have consented to doing films later this year”.

Sanjay Gupta’s film titled, ‘Jazbaa’. "Yes guys it's true. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will play the dynamic female lead in my action/thriller 'Jazbaa'," confirmed Gupta who directed films like ‘Kaante’, ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala’.

Aishwarya has been signed by Mani Ratnam for a thriller which also stars Nagarjuna and Mahesh Babu in the male lead.

Mani Ratnam’s wife Suhasini unofficially confirmed the news saying the film will go on floor in June and if everything goes as per plan then possibility is high that Ash might be a part of the Tamil-Telugu bilingual. Superstars Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna will be playing the male leads and Shrui Hassan is playing the other lead actress. An Iranian actor and Pakistani actress may also join the team. Aishwarya and Abhishek worked together in Mani Ratnam's 'Guru' which was a blockbuster.

Ever since her first child Aaradhya is born, Ash took a break from her career and totally concentrating in bringing up her daughter. Now that Aaradhya is bit grown up now, Ash is planning to resume work.
