Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan are one of the strongest and most adorable couples in Bollywood. Before getting married in 2007, Abhishek and Aishwarya came together for many Bollywood projects. This includes ‘Kuch Na Kaho‘, ‘Guru‘, and ‘Dhoom 2′ etc. The last time the couple worked together on the silver screen was in the 2010 movie ‘Raavan‘. Now that’s a long time ago! Their fans naturally must be missing their on-screen chemistry.
But fret not, there is good news for all Ash and Abhi fans. After eight long years, the couple has decided to star together in a movie. Yes, the couple will soon shoot for a movie opposite each other.
The movie is title ‘Gulab Jamun‘ and it’s an Anurag Kashyap venture. During a promotional event for her upcoming movie, ‘Fanney Khan‘ Aishwarya Rai Bachchan confirmed the news of staring in the movie with husband Abhishek. This is what she reportedly said:
“AB [Abhishek] and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyan”
The actress also made an interesting revelation about how they came on board for this project. Apparently, the couple originally got the script for ‘Gulab Jamun‘ about one and half years ago. Even though they liked the script then, they decided not to start on it because Abhishek wanted to take a break.
It was only when Abhishek began working on ‘Manmarziyan‘ with Anurag Kashyap, ‘Gulab Jamun‘ also came up. Here is what Aish told the media daily:
“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 Manmarziyan, 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.”
