Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had previously revealed that she had been reading scripts for her Bollywood comeback. And now, there is a strong buzz doing the rounds that suggest the diva’s husband Abhishek Bachchan will be playing the lead role opposite her.
The makers of the remake of Shekhar Kapur’s movie Masoom are looking forward to sign the Bachchan couple to play the immortalized roles of Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi.
Himesh Reshammiya is rumoured to have negotiated for the remake rights of the family drama with original producers Chanda Dutt and Devi Dutt. He has also given the directorial job to Bedabrata Pain. Bedabrata was in the spotlight for his historical drama Chittagong receiving rave reviews and the director has also confirmed the news of his directing Masoom in today’s context.
As per reports, the project is seemingly waiting for the green signal from the Bachchans and as soon as they’re ready, the movie will go on the floors. The legendary Gulzar will be penning down the screenplay for the film and with such amazing talents working on the movie, we are already looking forward to Aishwarya’s jhintaak comeback!
