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 and with whom?

Apunka Choice recently took a poll to see which actor fans wanted the actress to share the screen with once again. It looks like people voted that they wanted to see Rai’s former flame Salman Khan in a film together to rekindle their onscreen chemistry again.

The tabloid’s poll asked readers which former ex flames they want to see together in a film again and included choices like Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, John Abraham and Bipasha Basu, Abhishek Bachchan and Karisma Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma, and Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.

Apparently 46 percent of the 1431 votes wanted to see Khan and Rai back together again after their split in March 2002.

After giving birth to her daughter Aaradhya, it has been three years since Rai has been spotted in a Bollywood movie. Now that her daughter is set to go to school, the actress reportedly gave her nod for a new film.

Although Rai and Khan may not do a movie together anytime soon, the former Miss World confirmed that she is doing Mani Ratnam’s project which has Nagarjuna and Mahesh Babu as her co-stars.

The film is expected to start shooting by mid 2014 and will be Rai’s first film since giving birth to her daughter.

Ratnam and Rai have previously worked together in her 1991 debut film “Iruvar” as well as Guru” and “Ravaan” and became close friends.

Ratnam was planning to direct the film with Rai’s husband Abhishek as the leading couple, however, those plans haven’t been confirmed.

“Mani shared a fabulous equation with Abhishek and Ash. But this time he’s planning to direct a film which has a very strong female protagonist’s character. Mani feels there is little room for Abhishek in his next,” said a source to Bollywood Hungama.

“Aishwarya was very clear about her priorities after she became a mother. She gave a hundred of her time and concentration to her daughter Aaradhya for two years. Now that Aaradhya is ready for playschool Aishwarya can start thinking of seriously coming back to acting,” added the source.

Rai has allegedly been in talk with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for another film, however, she hasn’t made any decisions with him yet.

“While she’s looking forward to working with SLB, she’s all set to return with Mani Ratnam’s next project,” said the source.

There were previous reports stating that Rai and Bachchan were returning to the big screen together in “Happy Anniversary,” however, nothing has been confirmed.
