Aishwarya to star opposite Abhishek Bachchan in Gulab Jamun

Mumbai: It’s been eight long years since we last saw the real life couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan together on the big screen. Abhishek and Aishwarya have starred together in various films like Kuch Na Kaho, Umrao Jaan, Dhoom 2, Guru, and Raavan. Coming in as great news for Abhishek – Aishwarya fans, the duo will be seen together in their next – Gulab Jamun. 
Aishwarya confirmed the same in an interview to a daily and mentioned that they had the script a year and a half back but didn’t give a nod as Abhishek was keen on taking a break. It was later when the talks about film began again, Aishwarya asked Abhishek to decide. She told the daily, “AB and I agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyan.”
The actress further 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 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.”
On film’s script, Aishwarya said, “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 actually approaching the story as individual actors?”
Are you excited to see this real-life couple go reel after such a long gap? We sure are.
