Fans have been eagerly awaiting this news! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is currently in Cannes for L’Oreal Paris, may soon be lighting up the big screen again soon and in a cool new avatar! Director Sanjay Gupta confirmed on Twitter that she will be starring in his action thriller Jazbaa.
Yes guys it's true. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will play the dynamic female lead in my action/thriller JAZBAA.

Talking about her role he said in an recent interview, “Though Jazbaa will star Aishwarya, it won’t use her ultra-glamorous personality to light up the frames. She will glow from within.”
Apparently the actress will be a full on action hero! “She’s the hero of the film. There is no gender-specificity in what she does in the narrative. I’ve cast her in a role like any of the heroes in my films. She could be John in Shootout At Wadala or Sanjay Dutt in Zinda. It’s that kind of a role where her gender plays no role in the proceedings,” said Gupta.
We can’t wait to hear more! Watch this space we will keep you in the know!
