|Aishwarya Rai, who had taken a sabbatical post her pregnancy, is gearing up for her second innings in Bollywood, and will be seen in Sanjay Gupta’s film Jazbaa. Now, it’s learnt that the actress will be sharing screen space with none other than the talented Irrfan Khan in the movie.
Aishwarya Rai and Irrfan Khan certainly have one commonality -- both of them are internationally known actors. Sanjay Gupta has reportedly roped in Irrfan Khan to play one of the leads in the movie. Actor John Abraham’s name has already been confirmed for the movie’s lead actor.
Now, some interesting dope on the film. For all those wondering what role Aishwarya Rai is going to play, hold your breath. The actress will apparently be seen as a fierce lawyer, while Irrfan Khan will essay the role of a suspended cop, who has problems with authority and in being disciplined. If Aishwarya and Irrfan’s characters are from the system, John’s is against it, and reportedly modeled on gangster Abu Salem after he was extradited from Portugal to India. Incidentally, Ash has neither worked with Irrfan nor John, and that makes the casting a lot more exciting.

However, the cast has not been confirmed as yet. Jazbaa is expected to go on the floors in the first quarter of 2015. With this film Aishwarya returns to Bollywood after a good gap of four years. She was last seen in the 2010-film Guzaarish.
Jazbaa will also see Ash doing a lot of stunts. Spiro Razatos, a well-known Hollywood stunt director, has been roped in to choreograph action sequences for the movie.
