it’s the news fans all over the world have been waiting for. after many false reports comes news that aishwarya rai-bachchan has finalised her comeback movie. surprisingly enough she has chosen a full-fledged action film jazbaa directed by sanjay gupta. for a while it seemed aishwarya’s first director mani ratnam would be helming her comeback film. but that project has been put on hold. talk of aishwarya being in a film directed by adman prahlad kakkad also proved to be just talk.

confirming these developments gupta said: “we start jazbaa in january 2015. we’ll be showcasing jazbaa at the cannes film festival in 2015.”

the filmmaker clarified that it’s not a woman-centric drama.

“just because aishwarya is in jazbaa we should not label the film female-centric. to me she’s the hero of the film” he said.

ash had done some action scenes in dhoom 2 but she didn’t have the kind of stunts that hrithik roshan had. in gupta’s film she will do all the stunts without the help of a body-double. she has already started training for the role.

“there is no gender-specificity in what she does in the narrative. i’ve cast her in a role like any of the heroes in my films. she could be john abraham in shootout at wadala or sanjay dutt in zinda. it’s that kind of a role where her gender plays no role in the proceedings.”

two prominent male actors are yet to be cast alongside aishwarya.

interestingly gupta is also working with abhishek bachchan in khottey sikkay which he will make immediately after jazbaa.

“after a year’s gap when i was scripting i am now doing three back-to-back films beginning with mumbai saga starring anil kapoor john abraham vivek oberoi and manoj bajpayee. this will be followed by jazbaa featuring aishwarya and then khottey sikkay.”

the prolific filmmaker says he won’t compromise.

“there will be no breaks in the storytelling for item songs. i will tell the stories heedless of extraneous demands. though jazbaa will star aishwarya it won’t use her ultra-glamorous personality to light up the frames” said gupta.
