It was almost eight years ago when Abhishek Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shared screen space together in Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavan’. And since then, the couple hasn’t appeared together on the big screen.
Recently, there was buzz that the duo has been approached by a filmmaker with a script and that they had given their nod to it. And just when it appeared that the real-life couple will be seen together in a movie, their union has been put on hold.
A Bollywoodlife.com report claimed, “Abhishek-Aishwarya were in talks for a film with Shailesh R Singh. While Abhishek was already on board, discussions were on with Aishwarya and her team for the same. But the movie has supposedly been put on the back burner. In fact, the project has been pushed ahead indefinitely.”
The report added that both Abhishek and Aishwarya were supposed to play top cops who are married to each other and their relationship gets stuck in political crisis.
As per sources, Aishwarya, who is otherwise known to be choosy about her scripts and price , wanted few alterations in the script, which did not take place. In the meantime, she took up another project and Abhishek too walked out of the project. Thereby leaving the chance to return as a pair on screen
Aishwarya has apparently given nod to the remake of Raat Aur Din a classic of legendary late actress Nargis. And will soon be seen in Fanny Khan with Rajkumar Rao and Anil Kapoor
