Well, there’s honestly been no dearth of stories announcing Ash’s comeback to silver screen. Just two weeks back, there was much noise about Aishwarya Rai under consideration for a role opposite the 25-year-old Varun Dhawan in a film to be directed by Sriram Raghavan. However, we are yet to hear of any progress on that front.
Now, we learn that Farah Khan is eager to rope in Aishwarya for her film Happy New Year that stars Shahrukh Khan in the lead role.
It’s a dream project of both Farah and Shahrukh and has been talked about for years now, without any signs of it materializing, albeit. However, that’s gonna change soon, it seems, for Farah Khan is reportedly intent on seeing Happy New Year through this time and is also excited about the prospect of teaming up with Shahrukh Khan again after her falling-out and subsequent make up with the star.
But the big question is: will Aishwarya Rai give her nod to the film? Given that the 39-year-old beauty hasn’t ruled out a return to Bollywood, this one looks like a plum project tailor made for her comeback to the silver screen. Little Aaradhya too is more than a year old now and that might prod the lovely mom to squeeze out just enough time for a movie commitment.
Presently, Aishwarya Rai is in Vancouver for TOIFA and could not be reached for comment.
