Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan Will NOT Be Working Together For Now
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are still on the lookout for the perfect script
For years now, fans have been hoping Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will star in a film together. Last year, the sweetly-titled Gulab Jamun was announced with much fanfare and it was seen as the coming together of Ash and Abhi after nearly a decade. Unfortunately, it looks like fans will have to wait.
The film that was to feature the real-life husband-wife jodi is “on the back-burner for now.” The question is, what will the couple work in next? A hunt is on for a suitable project. Says a source close to the couple, “Aishwarya and Abhishek have decided to not do a film together where they play lovers. Abhishek romancing Aishwarya would just not work with an audience. It has to be a story of a relationship that goes beyond courtship.”
Abhi-Ash has had a mixed fortune at the box office. Their Guru, directed by Mani Ratnam was a huge hit. But Raavan, by the same director, flopped miserably. However, as a couple, they still continue to mesmerise their fans though it remains to be seen if there will be a project that will suit them perfectly. Abhishek and Aishwarya are not the only real-life couple facing a crisis of on-screen compatibility. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena are also saddled with the responsibility of taking their togetherness on screen beyond public perception. Most of the Kareena and Saif’s projects together – Tashan, Agent Vinod – failed to enthuse moviegoers.
