Aishwarya RaiAishwarya Rai and John Abraham - time for reel romance!

Come January, Aishwarya Rai and John Abraham will begin shooting for their first-ever romantic film together.

Creating this casting coup is director Sriram Raghavan , who has made gritty thrillers like Ek Haseena Thi and Johnny Gaddaar . With his next film for Rohan Sippy , Raghavan is departing from his set style and is trying his hand at making a romantic movie.




But a stereotypical love story it won't be. Ash and John won't play glamourous characters dressed up to the nines in designer outfits. They would play simple, real, non-glamourous characters that any man or woman on the street can relate to.

In Raghavan's own words: "It's a very true-to-life story, with a touch of incredulity."

One commercial element Raghavan is now surrendering to is - songs. Earlier, songs have played only in the background in Raghavan's films. That's the way he liked it. Now, he is ready to take on, what he calls, "the challenge" of making the actors lip-sync to the songs.

Aishwarya will wrap up her prior commitments by the end of this year and will begin shooting for the film from January. John has given his dates till February. Raghavan is hopeful that he will shoot at least two-third of the film in this time.

However, there is one thing both Raghavan and producer Rohan Sippy are stuck at - the title of the film. Though they have zeroed in on a couple of names, the title has still not been finalized. As soon as it is decided, music trio Shankar Ehsaan Loy will get into action and compose the title song.
