Earlier this year, the news that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is making her comeback to the big screen had made headlines. The actor had taken a prolonged maternity break post the birth of her daughter Aaradhya in November 2011.

And ad film-maker Prahlad Kakkar was to be the lucky director for Aishwarya’s next film that will also star her husband, Abhishek Bachchan. However, the project got stalled for a number of reasons — including Aishwarya being upset with the makers for apparently commenting on her weight gain — and film-maker Sanjay Gupta managed to beat him to the punch.

And now, we’ve heard that Prahlad’s movie is finally on track, with shooting starting early next year. A source close to the ad-man says, "Prahlad and Aishwarya already shared a healthy working equation. Prahlad was one of the earliest names to back her when she started modelling. He has now ironed out the so-called problems, and is all set to start the film in 2015."

When asked about this, Prahlad confirms the development, saying, "There is no change in the cast of the film and, Inshallah, we should be starting the film in February. In the film industry, only God knows how and when things fall into place."
