After announcing the cast, director Sanjay Gupta has revealed the plot of his film "Jazbaa" starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

While, directors and actors make sure that their film's script is not revealed online, Gupta in an interview with The Times of India leaked the plot of his upcoming film.

While discussing about how Aishwarya bagged the film with the help of her husband Abhishek Bachchan, Gupta also gave a hint about the film's plot.

The story of the film revolves around four characters, Irrfan Khan, Aishwarya and John Abraham. The director is still searching a senior actress to play the fourth character.

Khan is playing the role of a suspended cop who has problems with authorities.

Aishwarya will play the role of a lawyer and as reported previously, she will get to do some never-seen-before action scenes in the movie. The director in May said that Aishwarya would play the dynamic female lead in the action thriller.

As Khan and Aishwarya are in the lead, their fans might expect a romantic angle between the two. However, the director said that "Jazbaa" would not depict romance between Khan and Aishwarya. But it ends on a note where the audience will get a feeling that Aishwarya and Khan's equation might develop into a relationship later, Gupta told TOI.

Gupta also confirmed that Abraham would do a cameo role in the film. And if reports are to be believed, his role will be based on gangster Abu Salem's life after he was deported to India.

While, the director has not revealed the complete storyline, he has certainly generated curiosity among the audience who are waiting for the film to release.

Even before going on floors, the film has created the right amount of hype to make it as one the most awaited films. The film marks the comeback of Bollywood diva and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai.

Also, this is for the first time Aishwarya will be seen sharing screen space with Khan and Abraham.
