Post marriage there were rumours in the industry circles that Aishwarya Rai will prefer to do films only with hubby Abhishek Bachchan. The couple was earlier seen in films like Kuch Naa Kaho, Umrao Jaan, Guru and Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar Raj paired opposite each other.
It seems the rumours to some extent are ringing true if one looks at her next line up of releases. While she has three films with hubby Abhishek she has only one film signed opposite another star, Akshay Kumar.
Presently the couple is shooting for Mani Ratnam’s Ravana in jungles of Madhya Pradesh at a virgin locale called, Orcha. Post that film, both are slated to star in Ad filmmaker Abhinay Deo’s next after Delhi Belly.
The yet untitled film is said to be a action thriller which will be shot extensively in Greece, Thailand, Istanbul and London. Besides Ash and Abhi, Boman Irani has been finalised but rest of the cast is yet to be decided.
Next they have been approached by filmmaker Rajiv Menon’s Sur which will be a remake of yesteryear classic Abhimaan but the project is still undecided.
The Akshay Kumar that she has signed is a Vipul Shah production and will have her playing mother to a 13 year old kid. One can recollect her refusing Karan Johar’s Dostana.
