Aishwarya Rai Bachchan fans went crazy when the "Jazbaa" director Sanjay Gupta announced on his Twitter handle about Abhishek Bachchan's cameo in the film.

"Big excitement at the shoot today as Abhishek Bachchan shoots his special appearance in JAZBAA." he tweeted on 1 April.

However, it turned out that the director fooled everyone including us into believing that the husband-wife pair will be sharing screen space yet again after Mani Ratnam's "Raavan" released in 2010.

By the end of the day, Gupta clarified the news of Abhishek's cameo in "Jazbaa":

"Jazbaa" marks the former Miss World's comeback to films  after a five-year hiatus.

It is a female-oriented film and has Aishwarya playing the lead role of a lawyer. She will also be performing some high octane never-seen-before action sequences.

The film is a remake of South Korean crime drama "Seven Days" and recent reports suggested that the actress will sport a completely different look in the film.

"Jazbaa" also features Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi in significant roles and will hit theatres on 9 October, 2015.
