Rumor mills have been churning about the comeback of Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan ever since her appearance in the 66th edition of Cannes film festival, earlier this year. However, the 39-year-old former Miss World slashed all rumors in an interview with Times of India, when she said: "It is too early to talk about projects now. Nothing has been finalised yet."

There were reports, which claimed that Bachchan was approached by Indian directors Karan Johar and Sanjay Leela Bansali for their upcoming films. However, the beauty queen, who has been on a break from her acting career for last three years was quoted as saying in an earlier interview that she does not believe in comebacks.

"I don't believe in comebacks. When was I away from the industry that I have to make a comeback now? I was always involved in it, so there is no point, in terming it as a 'comeback'. Yes, I was enjoying a slight break with my daughter and I am thoroughly loved it."

Bachchan, who has been slowly but steadily bouncing back to her pre-pregnancy weight, has been actively involved in quite a few projects of late. She has been touring around the world, ever since the beginning of this year, making appearances in events, including Cannes film festival, Chime for Change in London and Royal Ascot.

The green-eyed beauty, despite her busy schedule, is known to play a doting mother for her 18-month-old daughter Aaradhya, who is known to join her mother for almost all events.

"Motherhood is a whole book in itself. It has changed me and enhanced me as a person. I cannot put it simply in answer," she added.

In her interview, Bachchan also spoke about her love for jewellery.

"I enjoy jewellery a lot. But the most treasured are the very simple pieces, which include my wedding ring, a Manglorean style bangle and my mother-in-law's loha (iron bangle), which I cherish," she added.
