The actress and her husband, Abhishek Bachchan, have been signed by the filmmaker Anurah Kashyap for the film Gulab Jamun.
Rumor has it that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has given up an opportunity to work with one her favorite directors to be able to share screen space with her husband in Anurag Kashyap’s next.
A source in the know informs that Bhansali and Aishwarya were in “developed stages of discussion” over a project when Anurag Kashyap offered Aishwarya Gulab Jamun with her husband Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.
Says the source, “The choice was very clear. Aishwarya had to choose between working with Bhansali again and sharing screen space with her husband Abhishek in Anurag Kashyap’s film, as the dates for both films clashed. Aishwarya chose to do the film with her husband. They haven’t worked together for eight years. But more importantly both Abhishek and she have fabulous roles in Gulab Jamun. They play characters they’ve never played before.”
