Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are finally going to work together on screen after eight long years. The couple was last screen together sharing screen space in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavanan’ which came out in the year 2010. Since that, everyone is patiently waiting to see one of the most popular Bollywood couples, Abhi-Ash to share the screen after such a long gap.
Abhishek and Aishwarya will be seen in their next film titled ‘Gulab Jamun.’ that will be produced by Phantom Films. Aishwarya confirmed the same to Mid-Day and said, “AB [Abhishek] and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyaan.”
Aishwarya also told the publication that they had been offered the film one and a half years ago and they had agreed on it back then. “We had agreed on the idea then. However, it was around the same time that AB decided to take time out. After the hiatus, he returned with Manmarziyaan, which coincidentally is directed by Anurag Kashyap. That’s when the chatter around Gulab Jamun began again, and we finally came on board. It is a beautiful script, and we fit the narrative perfectly,” she added.
On the work front, Aishwarya is all geared up for her upcoming film Fanney Khan alongside Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Divya Dutta that is scheduled to release on August 3. Abhishek Bachchan, on the other hand, will next be seen in Manmarziyaan, which stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal and is slated to release on September 14.
