Mumbai: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan acted together in a movie 8 years back, in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavan’. Since then, the audiences haven’t heard that they will work together till a few years back, where they almost said yes to a project. But according to a report on DNA, Aishwarya opted out.
Reveals a source to the daily, “Abhi-Ash were in talks for a film with Shailesh R Singh. While Abhi was already on board, discussions were on with Ash and her team for the same. The real-life couple would’ve reunited on screen after eight long years. But the movie has supposedly been put on the back burner. In fact, the project has been pushed ahead indefinitely.”
The source added, “Ash is choosy about her projects. She had some issues with the script and wanted a few changes, which had not happened. Meanwhile, she signed another film (the remake of ‘Raat Aur Din’). Abhishek also took up a few movies. Since the whole idea was to get Abhi and Ash together on screen, once she backed out, he too found the whole thing pointless. There were budget issues as well.”
Abhishek Bachchan will be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s directorial ‘Manmarziyan’ which is directed by Aanand L. Rai. The movie also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal....
