Just when speculation is rife that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will make her return to the silver screen with Himesh Reshammiya’s Masoom remake along with her husband Abhishek Bachchan reprising the roles played by Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi in the original 1983 hit, we hear bigger news.
According to reports, the actress will return opposite Abhishek Bachchan in ad man Prahlad Kakkar’s maiden directorial venture Happy Anniversary. Set to go on the floors early next year, Happy Anniversary will be directed by Prahlad Kakkar and will hit the screens next year itself. The film’s producer Gaurang Doshi reveals that the film takes a universal look at the institution of marriage, and will be made on a massive scale with a huge release.
Aishwarya’s last two releases were the 2010 superhero flick Robot and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzarish. Since then she has been busy bringing up daughter Aaradhya. But now Ash has lost all those extra kilos and is ready to charm her fans all over again.
We wonder what will happen to Reshammiya’s ambitious plan of bringing the super couple together in his remake. Will Abhi-Ash start work on the Masoom remake first or Happy Anniversary?
Whichever movie releases first, we are very excited to see her again on the 70mm. Are you?
