It was more than three years since Aishwarya Rai went off the big screen after “Gulzaarish”, acclaimed for her role but the return after a long-wait is a dampener as it was not a big budget film, not a big hero film and finally not a big storyline.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will play the lead role opposite Irrfan Khan in Sanjay Gupta’s film called ‘Jaazba’ with a storyline that is not exciting but one of a suspended cop. While, her role is that of a lawyer and more dominating, it is more like Rani Mukerjee’s recent “Mardaani”.
‘Jazbaa’ shooting is likely to begin from January next year, to be released a year later. But the news has failed to cheer her fans, who are dumbstruck at the news. “She could have chosen one of the Khans or top heroes to stage a come back,” wrote one Sushil Chaubey on Facebook.
Even Twitter has seen the news with void. One mariairshad @mariairshad simply said it all with a question mark: “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan pairs up with Irrfan?”.
In all, twitter has more questions in messages about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s come back film than answers about her choice of the storyline, if not Irrfan Khan.
