Mumbai: A new still of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from her upcoming movie 'Sarbjit' is doing the rounds of social media and the hashtag '#Sarbjit' is been trending for several hours now.
After few dark glimpses of the character, this still from a Punjabi song in the movie comes a refreshing change. Aishwarya looks breathtaking beautiful in a traditional red outfit.
The actress will essay the role of Dalbir Kaur, who fought to have her brother Sarbjit Singh freed from the Pakistani jail where he was arrested on charges of spying. The biopic directed by Omung Kumar stars Randeep Hooda and Richa Chadha in lead role.
At an event recently, Aishwarya, who was last seen in 2015's Jazbaa, had thanked the makers for giving her the chance to portray such a strong character.
She had said, "It is a subject which we are all very familiar with. And we, as a team, were very keen to share the story with those who don't know about it in detail. It's very important for us, as a nation, to understand, respect and recognise the struggle. I would like to say thank you for giving me this opportunity to play the part of a lady I immensely respect. It's an absolute honour."
