You read it right! Former rivals Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen could be seen together in a film. Ad guru Prahlad Kakkad is thinking of roping in Sushmita as well for his debut Hindi film Happy Anniversary which might star Aishwarya in the lead.
It’s no news that the Bachchan bahu is keen to do Prahlad Kakkad’s Happy Anniversary. If things go as planned, she will be seen opposite her real life husband Abhishek Bachchan in the movie.
The husband-wife duo is currently going through the script of the film, to be produced by Gaurang Doshi, and is expected to sign on the dotted line soon.
The latest development is that Kakkad has also approached Sushmita Sen to play a crucial supporting role in the film. The adman has already met Sushmita with the script, and the actress is seriously considering the offer.
“If all goes well, we should have Sushmita in Happy Anniversary. It will be a pleasure to work with her,” Kakkad is quoted as saying by a tabloid.
Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen are considered rivals since they participated in Miss India contest 1994. Sushmita then pipped the hot favourite Aishwarya to win the crown. The two beauties were hardly seen exchanging pleasantries even. Later, Sush went on to win the Miss Universe tiara, while Ash was crowned Miss World.
The cold vibe between the two is now a thing of the past, and if the roles in Kakkad’s movie are good, the two ladies will apparently not let their past personal equation scuttle the chance of working together.
In Happy Anniversary, Aishwarya’s character starts off as a 21-year old and the story unfolds over the next eight years. The film will later see her pregnant with twins. The movie deals with marital issues and will be largely shot in South Africa.
