Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Irrfan Khan Snapped at Script Reading Session of 'Jazba'
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Romance 'Khoobsurat' Actor Fawad Khan in KJo's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'?Varinder Chawla

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who recently began shooting for her comeback film "Jazbaa", will next star in Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil". And, the buzz is that the former Miss World is likely to romance Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan in the KJo directorial, reported Mid-Day.

Fawad, who made his Bollywood debut with "Khoobsurat" (2014) opposite Sonam Kapoor, gained huge popularity among the Indian audience and since then has received a good number of Bollywood offers.

If reports are indeed true, it would be interesting to watch Aishwarya and Fawad's on-screen chemistry as they are both extremely good-looking actors. "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" also features Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma and is expected to go on the floors by mid-2015.

Johar's directorial is a love story that deals with love, relationships and heartbreaks and features "Bombay Velvet" co-stars in lead roles.

Though, the beauty queen plays a supporting role in the film, the filmmaker had earlier mentioned that it is possibly her most unusual and contemporary character.

This is the first time KJo has teamed up with Aishwarya and the "Bombay Velvet" stars in a project.

The film will extensively be shot in London, Paris, New York and parts of it in New Delhi and is scheduled to hit the theatres on 3 June, 2016.

Meanwhile, Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa" is a female-centric film in which Aishwarya plays the lead role of a lawyer. She will be seen performing some high-octane never-seen-before action sequences in the film that also features Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi in significant roles.
