Ever since Rohit Shetty and Shah Rukh Khan has announced their teaming up for another project after the success of their blockbuster "Chennai Express", speculations regarding the lead actress has been doing the rounds.

Previously Kajol was rumoured to have been approached for the lead role opposite SRK but later reports suggested that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been in talks with the makers for the lead actress role. However, no confirmation has been made yet.

But it appears that the former Miss World has given her nod to the film as it was evident during a recent event when the actress was asked if she is into Shetty's film.

According to a report in Bollywood Life, the blue-eyed actress without denying it said: "It will be prudent for me to make any announcements without the team," thereby hinting that the actress has already teamed up with SRK.

It should be mentioned that during a recent press conference on the occasion of her birthday, Aishwarya had revealed that she has signed a few other projects apart from her comeback film "Jazbaa".

Going by her hint, it looks like both Aishwarya and Khan are ready to reunite after 12 years in Shetty's film. They last worked together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus, "Devdas".

There were also reports that the filmmaker was keen to bring the hit couple – SRK and Aishwarya together as they have always been loved by the audience on-screen.

Meanwhile, the beauty queen will soon start shooting for her comeback film, "Jazbaa", directed by Sanjay Gupta. The film also has Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi in important roles.

On the other hand, Khan is riding high with the stupendous success of his recently released film, "Happy New Year", also starring Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah.
