New Delhi: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to return to the big screen after a gap of five years with Sanjay Gupta’s “Jazbaa” but the Bollywood diva says she does not understand the hue and cry about it as she never felt being absent from films.
The 41-year-old actress’ last movie outing was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Guzaarish” in 2010. Aishwarya says she is enjoying being in front of the camera again and looking forward to the release of “Jazbaa”, which also stars Shabana Azmi, Irrfan, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Jackie Shroff.
“So far the experience has been great. Sanjay has been so nice. The whole cast- Irrfan, Shabana ji, Chandan, Jaggu Dada ( Jackie)- everyone has been great. I am glad to be working with them. I do not feel like there has been any gap. I am really enjoying,” the actress said.
The film, which is set to release on October 9, is a remake of the 2007 South Korean movie “Seven Days”.
The “Guru” star was in the capital last night to walk the ramp for ace designer Manish Malhotra’s show “The Empress Story” at the just concluded Amazon India Couture Week. Despite being unwell, the former model looked resplendent in a chocolate brown floo length gown.
The show was also attended by her mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan and other B-Town stars like Azmi, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kriti Sanon, among others. “It is great to be in Delhi and be cheered on by so many industry friends, colleagues and my mother-in-law,” she said.
