The critical and commercial buzz around Rituparno Ghosh's first Hindi film Raincoat is strong enough to prompt its director and leading lady to work together again. Rituparno Ghosh and Aishwarya Rai are all set to team up for the third time after the Bengali Chokher Bali and the Hindi Raincoat.

The film in Hindi is expected to cast Aishwarya Rai as Shabana Azmi's daughter. After Unnishe April and Titli it will be his third film in the mother-daughter relationship. While Aparna Sen and Debashree Roy had played mother and daughter in the first, real-life  mother-daughter Aparna and Konkona Sen Sharma starred in the latter. This project would precede Ghosh's other plan to make a Hindi film with Amitabh Bachchan in the lead because that requires to be shot in winter.
