Post the phenomenal success of Chennai Express, fans have been waiting for director Rohit Shetty to announce his next film with Shahrukh Khan. So far, no details regarding the film have been revealed but as per latest rumours, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan might just join SRK for Shetty's next movie.
The director has approached Aishwarya to play a plum role in the film and has lined up a meeting with the actress to discuss her casting, reports Times of India.
If Shetty succeeds in locking the stellar cast for his project, then SRK and Aishwarya will romance each other onscreen after 12 years.
SRK and Rai were last seen together on screen in the 2002 musical drama Devdas. Before that also, the duo were part of several successful films like Josh and Mohabbatein. But after an infamous incident involving Rai's (then estranged) boyfriend Salman Khan, on the sets of SRK's film Chalte Chalte, the two stars had a bit of falling out.
However, the two seem to be in good terms now and fans would be delighted to see them together in a typical Bollywood film (the ones Shetty is famous for).
Meanwhile, Aishwarya is all set for her comeback film, after a sabbatical of four years, in Sanjay Gupta's action thriller titled Jazbaa opposite Irrfan Khan.
SRK is currently in US along with Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and the rest of his Happy New Year team for their big Bollywood tour - SLAM!
