The movie is a rom-com, written and directed by newcomer Sarvesh Mewara and produced by Phantom Films. Abhishek and Aishwarya have liked the content, but haven’t given it a nod yet. Buzz is that while Jaya Bachchan was requested to join the film, she has declined, while Amitabh Bachchan has been drawn closer to assume an exceptionally extraordinary part in the film. This is will be Aishwarya and Abhishek`s eight-film following seven years. Their last film was Mani Ratnam`s Raavan (2010).
Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan say a trade source, “It’s a quirky dramedy (drama and comedy), a slice-of-life film which has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan grow into elderly people. But the twist is that they won’t be sporting white hair and looking old. While Abhishek matures and becomes somebody else (the role Amitabh Bachchan has been approached for), Aishwarya becomes an elderly woman (played by another actress). Jaya Bachchan was approached to play an older Ash but she refused. Gulab Jamun represents the sweetness of life.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had confirmed, at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, that Anurag Kashyap, from Phantom, had approached her and Abhishek Bachchan for his next project and the script was narrated to them. Abhishek had also told the media that they were still in talks with Anurag about it. The script was taking time to be fleshed out and that was the reason both the stars took time to give their nod. A narration was given last month and Aishwarya and Abhishek liked the script and both agreed to come on board. Right now other issues including dates and remuneration are being worked out. Once that is finalized an announcement will be made soon.”
Gulab Jamun is a light-hearted story about human relationships. We are really looking forward to this. Abhishek and Aishwarya first came together in the film Dhai Akshar Prem Ke. We could see their relationship growing in the films like Umrao Jaan and Guru.
Aishwarya and Abhishek have additionally been approached for Simran maker Shailesh R Singh`s cop dramatization, rotating around the lives of two IPS officers who are hitched to each other. Right now that film is likewise underthought.
