Aishwarya to promote ‘Jazbaa’ on ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’


Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who is busy promoting her upcoming film ‘Jazbaa’ will soon visit the sets of popular show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ for the promotional campaign. The former Miss World will shoot for the episode on September 30.

The show hosted by stand up comedian-turned-actor Kapil Sharma has become a sought-after medium for film personalities to promote their movies through the small screen. Aishwarya’s husband Abhishek Bachchan and her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan had also visited the show on different occasion and had a gala time.  

Earlier in August, Aishwarya and her co-star in the film Irrfan Khan kick-started the small screen promotional campaign of ‘Jazbaa’ when they arrived on the sets of dance reality show ‘Dance India Dance 5’.  

Aishwarya is making a comeback on the silver screen with ‘Jazbaa’ after a gap of five years. She was last seen in 2010 film ‘Guzaarish’ opposite Hrithik Roshan. In the meantime, she became a mother and devoted her time to raise her daughter Aaradhya who will soon be four years old.

Directed by Sanjay Gupta, ‘Jazbaa’ also stars Shabana Azmi, Jackie Shorff, Atul Kulkarni, Chandan Roy Sanyal and others, besides Aishwarya and Irrfan. The film is a remake of 2007 South Korean film ‘Seven Days’ and is set to hit screens on October 9.

Thereafter, Aishwarya will fly off to London to shoot for her next film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ being directed by Karan Johar. Her co-stars of the film Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor have already begun shooting.
