“Abhishek and Aishwarya were seen together in Guru before that by Mani. Amitabh along with Abhishek and Aishwarya were a part of Bunty Aur Babli, which was directed by Mani’s assistant Shaad Ali. Amitabh also did a Jhoom Barabar Jhoom with Abhishek again. But, Amitabh and Aishwarya have not come together again which basically got everyone excited,” says a trade source.
But, the truth is that Amitabh has still not given the nod for the film which is reportedly based on Kalki Krishnamurthy’s work Ponniyin Selvan, a historical drama. “We do not have any information on that yet,” says Amitabh’s spokesperson.
