Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan are one of the B-town’s most ideal couples. Aishwarya and Abhishek fell in love with each other during the shooting of the movie the ‘Dhoom 2’ and tied the knot soon after on April 20, 2007. After her marriage, Rai took a break of about 5 years from her career. The couple is not new to hovering media attention over their professional as well as personal lives. And this time, Abhishek’s decision to work (or not) opposite Priyanka Chopra in Sonali Bose’s next has become controversial.

We’ll talk about it some more, but first, let’s have a look at a few pictures of this amazing couple and family:

Now, rumors about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being unhappy with Abhishek’s decision to consider Sonali Bose’s directorial next have been doing the rounds. Apparently, Sonali Bose is working on her next movie which will be based on Aisha Chaudhary’s life. Aisha was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at age 13, after which she went on to become a motivational speaker. She finally succumbed to the disease and died at just 18 in the year 2015.

As per reports, Sonali approached Zaira Wasim, the Dangal actress, to portray Aisha’s character in the movie. And the director wants Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan to portray the characters of Aisha’s mother and father respectively.

Reports suggest that Aishwarya does not find the role to be meaty enough for Abhishek. And here’s why! Abhishek is currently busy with Anurag Kashyap’s next- ‘Manmarjiyan‘ in which he is playing the lead role. And apparently, Aishwarya wants him to follow this movie with a better or at least an equally meaty role. As it is, Zaira Wasim (or whoever ends up portraying Aisha) will remain the main focus of Sonali’s movie.

Well, if that’s the case- no one can fault Aishwarya for wanting her husband to continue performing meatier roles. What do you think?
