"Yes, I was approached for the film but I wasn't working opposite Abhishek in it, and it really wouldn't work out that way, so things didn't fall into place but soon, will be back soon," Aishwarya said.

Earlier, a source close to the actress told DNA, "Aishwarya was offered for the lead role, and ideally she might have considered it, but the film also stars her hubby Abhishek Bachchan, and he isn't paired opposite her. That was her reservation. She believes that if they come together in a film, they should be paired opposite each other, else the audience might reject the film."
