It’s been a while since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was last seen on the silver screen, but things are about to change. Contrary to what was reported earlier that Aishwarya would be making her come back to films with the Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film, news is that she will be doing so with Sanjay Gupta’s next titled Jazbaa.

Confirming the development Sanjay says, “Yes, Aishwarya will be making her official come back with my film Jazbaa. In fact she will be the main hero and central character in the film. We will be making an official announcement of the same in a big way at Cannes this year.”

Further talking about the film Sanjay reveals, “Jazbaa will be an action thriller drama, in which Aishwarya features as a very strong female lead. In fact her character is so strong that she is more like the hero of the film, than a lead actress.”

Jazbaa that will be produced and directed by Sanjay will also feature two male leads and is slated to go on floors in January 2015. He will however, start shooting Mumbai Saga first in the month of August.
