Irrfan Khan is back as the rough and rugged cop in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's comeback film, Jazbaa. Is the Jurassic World star concerned that he will be sidelined by the light-eyed beauty in the film?

While Irrfan accepts that is bound to happen, he absolutely has no issues with it. In fact, he calls it "beautiful". At the launch of Jazbaa's trailer, the actor said, "I don't consider this is a comeback since I never felt that she ever went anywhere. There is nothing wrong with getting sidelined, in fact it would feel good. It depends on the person because of which you get sidelined. Getting sidelined due to Aishwarya is a beautiful thing,".

Irrfan admitted acting alongside Aishwarya was the toughest part for him while shooting Jazbaa. "Acting alongside Aishwarya was the most difficult thing. It was the toughest thing, but she made me at ease."

Irrfan is now working with another member from the Bachchan family after working magic in the successful Piku with Amitabh Bachchan. He was always eager to work with Aishwarya but his respect for her has got further enhanced during the course of the shooting.

"One of the major reasons to do the film was Aishwarya. I was looking forward to getting to know her and watching her style of working closely. Nothing could be more exhilarating than seeing a mother taking care of her child and simultaneously working. It was yesterday that we completed the shooting of the film and it was a beautiful day and a great experience. It's the kind of memory that I will cherish."

Irrfan is on a roll currently with the success of Piku and the super-success of English film, Jurassic World. Jazbaa is gearing up for release on October 9.
