After months of speculations, finally Aishwarya Rai has confirmed that she is returning with husband, Abhishek Bachchan on big screen after 8 long years. The power couple, who was last seen in Raavan (2010), is coming together for an Anurag Kashyap production. The actress has confirmed that they have given green signal to Sarvesh Mewara-directed Gulab Jamun, which will also be produced by Phantom Films.

While talking to Mid-Day the actress said, "AB [Abhishek] and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyan. We had agreed on the idea then. However, it was around the same time that AB decided to take time-out. After the hiatus, he returned with Manmarziyan, which coincidentally is directed by Anurag Kashyap. That's when the chatter around Gulab Jamun began again, and we finally came on board. It is a beautiful script, and we fit the narrative perfectly." She further added, “The script has to be interesting if a real-life couple is coming together."

When Aishwarya was asked how a script excites them, she said, "We have got many scripts, and at times, we got tempted too. But then, we discuss it out loud. We take stock and say, 'Does it excite us?' Why should marriage define our choices? Shouldn't we be actually approaching the story as individual actors?"

As of now, Aishwarya’s Fanney Khan is set to hit theatres on Friday (August 3) and Abhishek Bachchan is gearing up for Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyan co-starring Taapsee Pannu.
