Giving a stop to the rumours of Bollywood couple star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan paired together for the movie Gulab Jamun, the actress confirmed the news during the promotional event of her upcoming movie Fanney Khan.
Both the couples were last seen in Mani Ratnam’s 2010 movie Raavan and expected to be seen together in Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming project Gulab Juman. Aishwarya Rai said in a promotional event of Fanney Khan that they both agreed to do Gulab Juman.
Aishwarya said, “AB (Abhishek Bachchan) and I have agreed to do Gulab Juman. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmanrziyaan. We had agreed on the idea then. However, it was around the same time that AB decided to take time-out”.
She further added, “After the hiatus, he returned with Manmarziyaan, which coincidentally is directed by Anurag Kashyap. That’s when the chatter around Gulab Juman began again, and we finally came on board. It is a beautiful script, and we fit the narrative perfectly”.
While talking to the media, Aishwarya said that their choice of roles is not dominated by their relationship but the approach towards their individual characters.
“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 actually approaching the story as individual actors?”, she added further.
Along with Gulab Juman, other movies starring both Aishwarya and Abhishek were Raavan, Dhoom 2, Umrao Jaan, Guru, Sarkar raj and Kuchh Naa Kaho after which they get married in 2007.
Abhishek Bachchan is working on Anurag Kashyap’s movie Manmarziyaan also featuring Tapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal while Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is busy in the promotional event of her upcoming movie Fanney Khan.
