Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, making a comeback to the silver screen after a hiatus of three years, has a busy 2015 to look forward.
The former Miss World will start shooting for Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa" from December 2014. The female-centric film will have Aishwarya play the role of a lawyer. The film also stars Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi in pivotal roles.
"Jazbaa" was supposed to go on the floors in January next year but the makers of the film have preponed the shoot and are planning to wrap it up by February 2015 to keep it ready in time for screening at next year's Cannes Film Festival.
If "Jazbaa" makes its way to Cannes, it will be Aishwarya's third film to be premiered at the prestigious festival after "Devdas" and "Raavan".
After wrapping "Jazbaa", the actress, who is well-known in the International circuit, will attend the 68th Cannes Film Festival in May 2015. The gorgeous lady has been a regular at the prestigious film festival and her appearances have always grabbed eyeballs.
A the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, the actress glittered in a gold off-shoulder dress as she walked the red carpet. She added charm to her look with a bold red lip colour and free flowing hair.
After her annual Cannes outing, the "Devdas" actress is expected to head to the annual Royal Ascot horse racing meet in Ascot, England, which will be held in June 2015. Aishwarya has been associated with the Ascot event since 2009 as the brand ambassador of luxury Swiss watchmaker, Longines.
On the workfront, besides "Jazbaa", the actress has signed Karan Johar's romantic drama "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" that also stars Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor. The film will apparently start rolling in July next year.
There were also reports that the beauty queen has given her nod to Rohit Shetty "Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi" remake opposite the baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan. However, no further reports are available regarding the same.
