Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Reveals why she choose 'Jazbaa' as her Comeback FilmVarinder Chawla

Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa" has been in the news ever since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was roped in to play the lead role of the film. The film marks the former Miss World's comeback in the film industry after five-year hiatus.

The female-centric film will see Aishwarya playing the role of a lawyer and perform some high octane never-seen-before action sequences.

While many of her fans wondered why the former Miss World chose an action flick for her comeback over many glamorous offers, the actress in a recent interview with The Times of India revealed the reasons of making a comeback with "Jazbaa".

Aishwarya said that the subject of the film pleased her and she was happy to spead the message through the film. Moreover, she has always enjoyed the director's work.

"It was an immediate yes because the subject has that kind of immense voice which I was very happy to spread and be a part of this team," said Aishwarya.

The film also features Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi in significant roles. There were also reports that the "Guzaarish" actress will sport a completely different look in the film.

The beauty queen was all praises for her director. "Gupta is a wonderful visionary for this subject on celluloid. And I think the combination is great. I have always enjoyed his work. The subject of this genre and the director...when these two come together, it has an exciting newness to it," she added.

"The team that has come together was on our wish-list. We had all discussed and I am glad that everybody like-minded has happily come on board because that is exactly what we together had visualized as actors coming on board...even the technical team, the professionals, who will continue to work till the very last minute. The journey has just begun (sic)," the Bachchan bahu concluded.

Soon after wrapping "Jazbaa", Aishwarya will start shooting for Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" in May this year. The film has Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.
