Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make a comeback in a stunningly different role in Sanjay Gupta`s next. The film is said to be an action thriller and the announcement will be made in Cannes.Says a source, “While most people are assuming that Aishwarya`s next will be Mani Ratnam`s Tamil film — a spy thriller — she has gone ahead and signed her first Bollywood film for her comeback. She had been wanting to sink her teeth into such a fabulous role, so when Gupta met her with such a role she took hardly a second to say yes. It`s an action thriller and Ash is the female lead. It`s not a typical song-and-dance film, Ash may have shades of grey in the movie. It`s something she is very excited about. Shooting starts in the next couple of months.”
Gupta has worked with both Amitabh (Kaante) and Abhishek Bachchan (Shootout At Lokhandwala); he will be working with the latter in his next venture as well. Seems the circle is complete with Ash`s comeback film.
