Once upon a time in the land of Mumbai, Abhishek Bachchan met Aishwarya Rai.
She was Miss World and Bollywood's biggest star. He was Amitabh Bachchan's son and resident 'cool-boy' actor of the time. They did a bunch of movies together and had a ton of chemistry on-screen.
Then the news of the two of them dating went viral, and lo and behold, Aishwarya married Abhishek. The world watched on from a distance as the two of them lived happily ever after, creating the perfect family in Bollywood's own version of a true life fairytale.
As they went from reel life romance to real life love, we were left wondering when we would ever see them act together again.
The last time we saw the couple act opposite each other in a movie was in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, and that happened eight years ago. Though the film did not do very well, there was no denying the fact that the two of them shared great chemistry on screen.
Then, a different film was decided with the two of them in the lead and, according to a report, the couple agreed to it as well. Unfortunately, the project fell through.
Well, that's until now. According to a television news report, the film in question is called Gulab Zamun and will be produced by Anurag Kashyap. The film will be directed by Sarvesh Mewara, and an announcement to this effect is likely to be made in the coming days.
After eight films together, they are now acting in one after eight years. Look's like eight might be their magic number, don't you think? We wonder if their chemistry has only gotten better with age?Judging by their pictures together, it sure does seem like it!
