It seems unusual that one of the most romantic off screen movie stories – that of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – has not been seen in a straightforward romantic situation on-screen since their marriage. Soon, we’ll be seeing them together in a tale of forbidden love in Raavan. But the pair are quite happy with this situation. “It’s wonderful because even we as actors, over the years, have been gravitating towards experiences as characters in a lot of movies,” says Aishwarya.
As well as Raavan, Aishwarya has also been working hard on Endhiran with Southern legend Rajnikanth and she has talked about how excited she feels to have the opportunity to work with him. “We’ve all grown up watching Rajinikanth films and all those moves – it’s been exciting, everyone around me was excited about me working with him,” she explains.
If that weren’t enough, Aishwarya is also lined up to start work on her third movie with Hrithik Roshan after Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar. As yet untitled, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie will begin shooting in April. In addition, she has Akshay Kumar in her sights for Action Replay, a time-travel movie which also sees the return of Randhir Kapoor to the screen. “Yes my next is a film called Action Replay with Akshay and Ash,” confirms Vipul, “Randhirji is also playing an important role in the film. The film is a about a time-travel tale. The film goes on floors this month end.”
If that weren’t enough, Aish also has plans to appear in Roland Joffe’s Singularity and she may also be in Crooked with Abhi and Irrfan Khan.
