Well, if you were waiting for the day when real-life couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would come back to sizzle the silver screen once again, it seems your prayers have been answered. Yes, if fresh reports are anything to go by, the duo is all set to be back on the big screen together. Reportedly, Aish and Abhi have given their consent to topline acclaimed filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s next film which he will just produce.
The Bachchan couple has previously worked on such movies as ‘Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke’ (2000), ‘Kuch Na Kaho’ (2003), ‘Umrao Jaan’ (2006), ‘Guru’ (2007) and ‘Sarkar Raj’ (2008). They were last seen in Mani Ratnam’s 2010 film ‘Raavan’. Despite getting mixed to good reviews from critics, the film failed to create any sort of mark at the ticket window. After that film sank, Abhishek and Aishwarya were never seen together in any flick. However, stories of them coming together for a number of unconfirmed projects remained apocryphal all these years, but nothing materialized. However, now they are doing a film together for sure, say insiders.
Their comeback project is titled ‘Gulab Jamun’. Anurag, who wrote the script for the same, reportedly pursued the couple for over a year before Abhi and Aish gave their final nod to star in it. A source revealed that the team will announce the production date soon. “The film is positively moving ahead and the production will be announced very soon,” said the source.
Currently, Kashyap is busy with the post-production work of his upcoming film ‘Manmarziyan’. Interestingly, the movie stars Abhishek Bachchan in the lead role alongside Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu. As for ‘Gulab Jamun’, the movie will be directed by Kashyap’s associate Sarvesh Mewara. It will be made under the banner of Phantom Films.
