When a filmmaker approached Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan with a script; here's what happened next
Bollywood most loved and celebrated couple Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan were last seen together in Mani Ratnam's 'Raavan'. Since then, their fans have been waiting for the couple to share screen space together, but it has not happened.
A few years ago, a filmmaker approached the couple with a script and they even gave their nod. Both were supposed to play top police officers who are married to each other, with their relationship suffering due to a political crisis.
However, rumours suggest the actress has lost the film, owing to her pricey and strange attitude. Rumours also say by the time the filmmakers came back, Aishwarya had signed another movie (the remake of ‘Raat Aur Din'), for which she was reportedly offered Rs 10 crore remuneration.
Therefore, she walked out of the project which could have been her reunion with her husband. Another reason is that makers weren't ready to pay the fee that the actress quoted. Abhishek also backed out later, leaving the producer disappointed.
In an interview with DNA, director Shailesh R Singh said, "Since the whole idea was to get Abhi and Ash together on screen, once she backed out, he too found the whole thing pointless. There were budget issues as well."
