Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make a comeback on the big screen with her upcoming movie "Jazbaa". As a matter of fact, the former Miss World will be seen in a film after five years, but the actress claims that she did not feel the gap, thanks to the cast of "Jazbaa".

The former Miss World was recently asked about how she felt coming back to the sets of a film after such a long time, and she praised the cast of "Jazbaa" in her reply. "It's lovely working with everyone in Jazbaa as the cast is so wonderful. From Irrfan Khan to Shabana Azmi, everyone was lovely. I never felt the gap," NDTV quoted Aishwarya Rai as saying.

The actress further added that she will be seen more frequently on the screen from now onwards. It has been learnt that after the release of "Jazbaa", Aishwarya Rai will again become an active face of the industry as she already has three back to back films in her kitty.

Apart from "Jazbaa", another upcoming film which is garnering a lot of attention is "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma along with Aishwarya Rai. In fact, this will be the first time that the actress will work with Karan Johar. Reports suggest that, Aishwarya Rai is also prepping well for the Sarabjit Singh biopic, in which she will play the role of Sarabjit Singh's sister, Dalbir Kaur. The list does not end here as Mrs. Bachchan has also reportedly been roped in for Sujoy Ghosh's next film starring Saif Ali Khan. The film is supposedly based on a Japanese novel "The Devotion of Suspect X".

Aishwarya Rai has been off from films for the sake of her daughter, Aaradhya, as she wanted to dedicate maximum time to her upbringing. But now the actress is full geared up to retain her place in the industry with some powerful roles.

Directed by Sanjay Gupta, "Jazbaa" is a much awaited flick where the actress will be seen playing the lead role. Aishwarya will appear as a lawyer in the film and she also has a couple of action sequences. Several pictures have been leaked from the sets of "Jazbaa" till date. Recently, a video was leaked, in which Aishwarya was seen shooting for an action scene. 

The film is slated to release on 9 October.
