When a remake of the Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan starrer, Abhimaan was thought of, it was only apt for the filmmakers to consider Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to essay the lead roles.
Fans of the duo are dying to see their favourite real life couple, star together in a film, but reports suggest that the duo have rejected the idea of the Abhimaan remake, saying, “The film should not be touched”. A source revealed to Deccan Chronicle, “Abhishek and Aishwarya are still bombarded with a plethora of scripts. However, they are quite wary of the kind of films they would like to do together. Abhishek especially was of the opinion that Abhimaan is the kind of cult classic that should remain untouched.”
We guess the Abhi-Ash fans will just have to wait a little longer to watch the couple together on the big screen. Having last worked together in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan (2010), news had recently emerged that the couple is in talks with Anurag Kashyap for his film, Gulab Jamun. There has not been any confirmation yet, but we do hope they zero in on an exciting project soon!
