I signed ‘Jazbaa’ because of Aishwarya, Irrfan Khan

The much awaited ‘Jazbaa’ trailer was launched today and was highly applauded. The trailer was launched by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Irrfan Khan, the director of the film Sanjay Gupta and others. Ash looked stunning in a black blazer worn with fitted jeans and boots. Irrfan looked dapper in a debonair in a monochrome jacket worn over a black shirt, and grey trousers.

During the trailer launch when Irrfan Khan was asked since it is going to be Aishwarya’s comeback film doesn’t he feel sidelined? The actor replied, “Firstly, I don’t see it as her comeback since I never felt she went anywhere. Also, it is not a bad thing to get sidelined. I will like it if I am sidelined by Aishwarya. It is a good thing,” Irrfan Khan told reporters at the film’s trailer launch.

The 'Paan Singh Tomar' actor said that one of the major reasons of signing 'Jazbaa' is Aishwarya. “One of the major reasons why I did this film is because of Aishwarya. I was looking forward to understanding and seeing her work from close quarters and it was an exhilarating experience. And you have to admire her because as a real life mother she was taking care of her child and also simultaneously shooting. There is no bigger thing than that,” said Irrfan, who was smart in black trousers, checkered coat.

‘Jazbaa’ also featuring Shabana Azmi and Jackie Shroff slated for October 9 release.
