|Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan will play husband and wife in Ladies and Gentlemen, their first comedy film together.
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek have done eight films together. From the irresolute lovers of Dhai Akshar Prem Ke to each other’s tormentors in Raavan, the couple has tried a slew of roles but for a romantic comedy. Well, that’s happening now with producer-director Rajkumar Santoshi’s 'Ladies and Gentlemen'.
In the movie, Abhishek plays a cheating hubby and Aishwarya his wife. Despite having worked with Ash so many times in his acting career, Abhishek says he’s still excited about teaming up with her again especially because this is the first time they will do a comedy film together.
"I have done quite a few films with Aishwarya and I have always enjoyed working with her, even before we were together and married. Ladies and Gentlemen is a romantic comedy, so it's something we have never done before. It will be interesting to see if we have that comic timing," Abhishek is quoted as saying.
Riding high on the success of Dum Maaro Dum Abhishek Bachchan is currently shooting in Russia for Abbas-Mustan's Players. Aishwarya on the other hand is heading to the Cannes film festival.
Ladies and Gentlemen is slated for a 2012 release and is expected to go on the floors in the first week of July.
