Aishwarya & Abhishek in Rajkumar Santoshi’s Film

Although, Raavan has been disaster over the box-office but Mr. and Mrs. Bachchan are still in demand that’s why once again couple will share the screen space in Rajkumar Santoshi’s romantic comedy, Ladies & Gentlemen, which flags off in July. Confirming the news, Aishwarya says,

“I met Rajji a week ago and he told me that before I start giving my dates to other producers, he wanted to lock a chunk for his film. Abhishek and I are his dream pair, he’s always wanted us for this film.”

She admits to having immensely liked this script, which she had heard years ago. Ladies & Gentlemen will be the star couple’s ninth film together. Their last film together was Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, which didn’t quite set the cash registers ringing. The actress sees the film as couple package. Aish says,

“But the movie got delayed and with Abhishek and Rajji on board, I’m happy to be back. As far as this script is concerned, it was always a yes.”

She says that the last three years have been hectic. In 2008, she had Jodhaa Akbar and Sarkar Raj. In 2009, she was juggling between the English film, The Pink Panther 2, Raavan and the Tamil film, Raavanan. Last year there was Robot, Action Replayy and Guzaarish.

“I took a small break after The Pink Pather 2 but then the last couple of years have been really busy. We actors enjoy our work so much that there are times when we commit to projects without realising that we’ve locked away a lot of ‘own’ time. I’ve tried to approach work differently but haven’t always succeeded. This break was necessary.”

Ladies & Gentlemen will be shot across Mumbai, Rome, New York and Malaysia. The actress is quite to work again with her husband.

“It’s wonderful to be doing another movie with Abhishek. We had a great time during Raavan even though I had to work really hard on both Raavan and Raavanan, which were critically acclaimed.”
