Bollywood's 'IT' couple Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan to star in movie Gulab Jamun which will be produced by Anurag Kashyap
Aishwarya Rai will be soon pairing up with husband Abhishek Bachchan, after eight years, in Gulab Jamun. According to her, she and Abhishek will "fit the narrative perfectly".
During the promotions of Fanney Khan, Aishwarya confirmed the news and told Mid-Day about her new film. She said, “AB (Abhishek Bachchan) and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyaan.”
The actress also mentioned that she thinks that they "fit the narrative perfectly" and added, "We had agreed on the idea then. However, it was around the same time that AB decided to take time out. After the hiatus, he returned with Manmarziyaan, which coincidentally is directed by Anurag Kashyap. That's when the chatter around Gulab Jamun began again, and we finally came on board. It is a beautiful script, and we fit the narrative perfectly."
Aishwarya and Abhishek have co-starred in several films including Guru, Dhoom 2, Umrao Jaan, Sarkar Raj, Kuchh Naa Kaho and their last movie together was Mani Ratnam’s Raavan in 2010.
Aish revealed that they were "tempted" by many scripts in the past before signing up for Gulab Jamun.
“The script has to be interesting if a real life couple is coming together. We have got many scripts, and at times, we got tempted too. But then, we discuss it out loud. We take stock and say, ‘Does it excite us?’ Why should marriage define our choices? Shouldn’t we be approaching the story as individual actors?,” the former Miss World explained.
Aishwarya and Abhishek are one of the most popular Bollywood couples and when they come out for any public event they grab the limelight along with their 6-year-old daughter Aaradhya.
