The last time

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

was seen on the big screen was in Guzaarish (2010).

Ever since she gave birth to her daughter Aaradhya, the buzz surrounding her comeback to Hindi films has been going strong. Adman-turned-film-maker,

Prahlad Kakkar

has revealed that the star hasn’t even heard the script of his upcoming directorial venture, which he has planned with her husband, Abhishek Bachchan.

However, Kakkar seems pretty confident about a positive response from her. He also isn’t worried about whether Aishwarya will make her much-talked-about


with his film.

"I don’t care if my film is her comeback film or not. It’ll just be good to have her on board, but she has to lose a little more weight, as she has to play a 21-year-old, and age till 29. Her character will also be pregnant with twins," says Kakkar, adding, "Right now, it’s difficult for her to do all that because she’s a hands-on mom. Her daughter is still very young, and it’ll be a logistical nightmare for her to travel or stay out of town for two months to shoot outdoors."

Kakkar also adds that he’s "almost done with the final draft of the script". He says, "By next week, I plan to narrate it to the cast. I am very confident that Aishwarya will like it and approve of it because it is a damn good script. All an actor wants is a good script."

The 63-year-old’s film apparently deals with issues involved in a marriage, and is expected to be shot in South Africa.
