MUMBAI: Finally, we might get to see Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan teaming up again for a film.
At a recently get-together, the actress was approached by SRK to play a cameo in his next, RA.One, directed by Anubhav Sinha. Even if it’s a cameo, at least they’re taking baby steps towards rebuilding their professional relationship.
The last time one saw Ash and Shah Rukh together was in 2002 in Devdas. After the Chalte Chalte fiasco, Aishwarya and Shah Rukh have never worked together. Both of them have tried working on several projects, but nothing materialised. A source reveals, “At a social get-together recently, Shah Rukh and Gauri were seen in the company of Abhi-Ash. Both the couples were bonding and had a long chat about movies and forthcoming projects. It was at this moment that Shah Rukh spoke about RA.One.”
The source continues, “Shah Rukh mentioned a scene to Aishwarya where she has to play herself in the film. It is a cameo. The scene is yet to be scripted, but so far it is about a character in the film who is Ash’s biggest fan and actually gets to meet her. Abhishek, who was listening, encouraged Ash to do it.”
“It was a general conversation that night but one hopes it materialises. It would be great to see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a Shah Rukh starrer,” adds the source.
Director Anubhav Sinha remained unavailable for comment. Aishwarya’s spokesperson says, “Nothing of this sort has happened, nor has she been approached for it.”
