There’s good news in the offing for fans of the duo’s classic drama films; however, there’s also a big surprise in store.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

The very beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is getting ready for the biggest role of her career. She is all set to join hands with her favourite director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, for what promises to be a marked departure from all of their previous collaborations.

Apparently, the director misses working with the gorgeous diva who defined feminine grace and timeless charm in three of his great classics: Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Guzaarish. A source in the know says, “They met this week and have decided to work on a big project that won’t be an epic or a historic story, and it won’t be heavy in tone either. Instead, it would be light in tone. In fact, the two intend to collaborate for a comedy film.”

The source adds, “Everyone knows that Aishwarya is a role model for all the heroines who work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. And no matter who he works with, she remains the benchmark. Even during the past five years, when he worked with other actors, the director has been constantly in touch with Aishwarya.”

Even the 44-year-old actress has always maintained that her connection with the critically-acclaimed director is telepathic. “He doesn’t have to tell me what to do. I know it,” she says.
