The breathtakingly beautiful and the red carpet queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make a comeback in Bollywood in Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa. Confirming the cast of the film, Jazbaa’s director Gupta tweeted, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Irfan Khan, Anupam Kher have been announced as the key players in JAZBAA. But more wajandaar names yet to be announced. This is EXCITING.”
Aishwarya, who was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Guzaarish” opposite Hrithik Roshan, is going to be seen in a very strong role. Jazbaa will be an action-thriller-drama. The actress, who took a break from Bollywood post marriage and being a doting mother to baby Aradhya is going to be back after a really long break. Reportedly her husband Abhishek Bachchan helped her make the comeback and she is all set to ride her comeback wagon after shedding oodles of post-pregnancy weight and looking totally fab.
Bollywood has witnessed sweeping change in cinema in the last four years ever since Rai’s long hiatus. A number of talented actresses have become a part of the film industry and have played strong characters. The likes of Richa Chaddha, Huma Qureshi, Parineeti Chopra, Sharddha Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt have prooved their mettle. Rai will be coming back to cut-throat competition from both her contemporaries and juniors. Sonakshi Sinha, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif are still ruling people’s hearts while actresses like Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan have done ‘heroine oriented films’ and have won accolades for the same.
And acting is not really Aishwarya’s strongest points really. So the race to the finish line of accolades and awards is going to be even tougher.
‘Jazbaa’ will start rolling early next year and will be shown at Cannes film festival in 2015. While revealing the plot of the film, Gupta shared that Aishwarya will play a lawyer, Irrfan Khan will essay the role of a suspended cop and John Abraham will do an important cameo. Jazbaa is similar to a South Korean crime thriller and director Gupta has purchased the remake rights of a film.
Page3Mumbai hopes that Aishwarya Rai Bacchhan reclaims her glory in Bollywood and makes a super comeback.
