There have been various rumors regarding Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback into the Bollywood industry and many fans have been wondering when the former Miss World will be returning in a new film. Now, reports confirm that Rai and her husband Abhishek Bachchan are returning to the big screen together in “Happy Anniversary.”

“We have finalized Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan for ‘Happy Anniversary.’ They are ideal married couple and we felt they fit the bill,” said Gaurang to Zee News. “Prahlad’s relation with Aishwarya and mine with Bachchan’s apart, the script also attracted the couple to do the film.”

The married couple have worked together in films such as “Dhai Akshar Prem Ke,” “Kuch Naa Kaho,” “Guru,” “Dhoom 2,” “Sarkaar Raj” and “Bunty Aur Babli.”
Gaurang stated that “Happy Anniversary” is expected to begin filming early next year and will be shot in South Africa.
It’s been two years since the actress has released a movie as she was last seen in 2010’s “Guzaarish.” Rai has been keeping busy with motherhood, taking care of baby girl Aaradhya, but now she is ready to get back into the film industry. There has been talk that Mrs. Bachchan will continue her acting career and do a remake of the classic film “Bemisal,” directed by Karan Johar.

In fact, he is in talks with Aishwarya,” a source told Bollywood Celebden. “She has been away from the films for a while and we haven’t heard of a confirmation yet from her end. But if all goes well, we will hopefully see her return to the big screen with this.”© 2014 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
