Recently, there was news that filmmaker Shailesh R Singh wants to cast both the actors in his next film which is based on a true story.
However, there were reports that Aishwarya has thrown starry tantrums over a film with Shailesh and Abhishek. According to the source, the film is based on a true story and about two IPS officers, who are husband and wife. The movie has the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh and its politics. Abhishek liked the story and has given his nod to the film though he is yet to sign the contract. Aishwarya has been approached for the female lead and will be hearing a story narration soon.
However, reports had suggested that Aishwarya had kept the filmmakers waiting for two months and tired of waiting, the director Shailesh was on the hunt for a new lead actress instead.

Talking to an entertainment website, Shailesh said, "We are discussing with Aishwarya Rai's team and will be giving her a narration soon. She has conveyed to us that she's interested in meeting us and hearing the story. I am planning to give Aishwarya a narration soon."
He also added "I would love to work with Aishwarya in this movie too as she suits the role. We cast actors in films keeping in perspective whether the roles suit them or not. I like to cast the actor according to the character."
Currently, Aishwarya is busy with the shoot of her upcoming film, Fanney Khan. The film also casts Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles. Shailesh R Singh has given many Bollywood films like Tanu Weds Manu, Shahid, Madaari and now he is all set for his next release Simran features Kangana Ranaut in the lead role.
