Bollywood stunner, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was away from the film industry for last two years might make a comeback with Varun Dhawan, who made his debut with Student of the Year. Yes, it’s quite surprising to cast Aishwarya opposite a boy who is just a film old, but its the director’s decision.
An insider from the project commented, “In the last two weeks, Varun and Sriram have met a few times to discuss the project. Varun is believed to be a big fan of the kind of films Sriram is known for.” He further added that Varun is almost confirmed for the lead but no response has come from Aishwarya’s side yet. If all goes well, the film should kick off later this year.
The film directed by Sriram Raghavan and produced by Ramesh Taurani, is supposed to be a dark thriller. The producer commented on the pre-production works of the film, “Work is underway on the script. Once that is ready, we will look at casting.” For now, Varun is busy with Main Tera Hero, a directorial film by his father and Aishwarya is engaged with her 1-year-old daughter, Aaradhya.
