Hrithik with Aishwarya Rai in upcoming Bhansali film

Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has already given two big Bollywood hits Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar. They are regarded as a hot couple even now but both of them have become selective in their movie roles after their marriage with Suzzane Khan and Abhishek Bachchan respectively. Aishwarya’s mother also confessed that she used to like Hrithik’s attitude and looks before her marriage with Abhishek Bachchan. After her marriage too, she was supposed to have been told by her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan that she would not kiss anybody in the big screen like she locked her lips with Hrithik in Dhoom 2. But this hot pair has been brought together once again by ace director of Bollywood Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has decided to cast them in his forthcoming movie. Sanjay has worked with Aishwarya Rai in two of his biggest hits Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas but this would be his first movie with Hrithik Roshan. The movie would be in English for the international market and Bhansali would expect to re-establish himself at the top after his last movie Saawariya was a huge disaster.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali said

I am

directing another film with Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. And, I am very excited about this project and so is my team. This is important to make films for our market but it’s the time when our cinema should reach the remotest corner of the world. Moreover, language is no more a barrier today. This is not the first time that I am making a film in English. My ‘Black’ was in English too

Good luck Sanjay and hope this hot pair creates a dhoom again with their great chemistry.
