Exclusive: Aishwarya’s role as a spy in Jazbaa is inspired by Angelina Jolie?

Now that Aishwarya  has confirmed doing Sanjay Gupta’s action flick Jazbaa, a source revealed there are similarities between her film and Angelina Jolie’s spy thriller Salt. Read on to find more..

A lot was written about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback before she confirmed doing Sanjay Gupta’s film at the Cannes film festival this year. It seems that Sanjay had this script in his mind for a long time and had even approached Ash in the past, but due to her domestic responsibilities she couldn’t do the film. Now that her daughter Aaradhya is all grown up, the Bachchan bahu is keen on returning back to films. 

A source close to the project reveals that Ash’s role in Jazbaa has shades of Angie’s character in Salt. Gupta has written a lot of action and chase scenes in the film which Ash plans to do.

Before she starts shooting the actress is planning to undergo some rigorous physical training to prepare for the role. Even though there is an option of using a body double, Ash has expressed her interest in doing her own stunts.

It would be an interesting choice of role for Aishwarya to do a full fledged action film. Something which she hasn’t tried since Dhoom 2!
