Real-life couple Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan has worked together in a few movies before, and their chemistry has worked wonders. Now, Kannada director Nagshekar, who is all set for his Bollywood debut, is eyeing their call sheets for his romantic entertainer.
The Bollywood movie is being produced by Bharat Jain, the successful producer of blockbuster movie "6-5=2", who has confirmed the news and said that he either wants Aishwarya Rai-Abhishek Bachchan or Ajay Devgn-Kajol to play the lead roles. The movie is written and directed by Nagshekar.
"Nagshekar has written the story and he will be directing it as well. It will be in Hindi and we will have one of the top pair in Bollywood," the Times of India quoted the producer as saying.
Bharat Jain has explained that though the cast of the film hasn't been confirmed yet, he surely wants big names from Bollywood to act in it. The pre-production work is on and makers will formally announce the news soon. It is also being said that he is remaking "6-5=2" in Bollywood.
He is the latest producer from Kannada film industry to venture into other film industries after K Manju (Produced "Bramman" in Tamil) and Rockline Venkatesh (Rajinikanth's forthcoming Tamil movie "Lingaa" and Telugu movie "Power").
On the other hand, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, will make a comeback with Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa" and Rohit Shetty's next with Shah Rukh Khan. It remains to be seen whether the couple will agree to act in Nagshekar's movie.
After starting his career as a comedian, Nagshekar turned director with Ganesh's "Aramane". But it was "Sanju Weds Geetha" that gave him the big break in the industry. It was followed by moderate hit "Mynaa".
