The last time we saw real-life couple Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan act opposite each other in a movie was in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan. That was eight years ago. Since then, there has been the occasional report stating that the two might work together but nothing has happened yet. Now, the ‘it’ couple of Bollywood might actually work in a film together.

According to a news report on Zee News, the film in question is called Gulab Zamun and will be produced by Anurag Kashyap. The film will be directed by Sarvesh Mewara and an announcement to this effect is likely to be made in the coming days.

It may be recalled that a different film was decided with the two of them in the lead and, according to a report, the couple agreed to it as well. Unfortunately, the project fell through.

Meanwhile Abhishek is currently working on Manmarziyaan, directed by Anurag Kashyap, also starring Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.The film is slated for a September 21 release.

Aishwarya, on the other hand, will soon get busy promoting her new film, Fanney Khan, in which she stars opposite Rajkummar Rao and Anil Kapoor. The film’s posters, songs like Halke Halke and Mohabbat, as well as the trailer are already a hit. Fanney Khan is Atul Manjerekar’s debut film as a director and releases on August 3.
