From her fans to industry watchers, everyone is waiting for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to make her silver screen comeback soon. The actress was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 2010 film "Guzaarish".
Ever since she lost her post-baby weight, there have been several rumors about the actress making a comeback with stars like Varun Dhawan, Abhishek Bachchan and others.
The latest buzz is that she might share screen space with Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan in an upcoming film by choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan.
Earlier, there were reports that Farah has approached the former Miss World for her film "Happy New Year". Now, latest report suggest that Aishwarya has shown her interest in the film, which also features Abhishek Bachchan. But she has not made any decision yet.
"Aishwarya apparently wants to read the script before she arrives at any decision. She wants to read it along with the makers and Shah Rukh, once he is done with his present commitments," Hindustan Times quoted a source as saying.
"Even though Aishwarya hasn't read the script, she has an idea of the story, since Abhishek is also featured in the film."
However, Farah has insisted that she won't feature an established star for the female lead role.
"I'm meeting new faces every day. I'm looking out for a new girl who will match up with all the actors in the film. So, I have not signed anyone so far, and all the rumours are baseless. There's a new name every day. The movie will go as per schedule and I will find a fresh face for it," she told HT.
When Farah was asked about Aishwarya being considered for the lead role, she replied, "No. Like I said, I've not signed anyone. If I go to their office, it's because I'm meeting Abhishek. We're working together and have things to discuss."
If rumours turns out to be true and if Aishwarya signs "Happy New Year", then it will her first film after giving birth to daughter Aaradhya. Also, it will mark the reunion of Aishwarya and Shah Rukh after a gap of 11 years.
