Apparently, she couldn't stop gushing about the film at Cannes. Here's what it's all about...
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to make a comeback through Jazbaa. The movie is directed by Sanjay Gupta, who is more known for his macho actioners like Kaante, Zinda, Aatish and Shootout at Wadala. Aishwarya and Sanjay Gupta make for an interesting combo, since the latter hasn't made a women-centric film before. Jazbaa's first look was recently revealed at Cannes.
The upcoming film is inspired from the 2007 South Korean film, Seven Days. It's about a criminal lawyer and a single mother, who is forced to face her worst nightmares when her daughter gets kidnapped. The movie chronicles her struggles in the trying circumstances to get her daughter back.
Naturally, Aishwarya is all excited about the movie, that revolves entirely around her character. In an interview with DNA, she spoke "There's a certain cinematic language that you associate Sanjay's films with. It can run through anybody's mind who knows him and his cinema. So it was more interesting when I came to know that he's making a film on a subject like this, which totally celebrates the power of a woman.”
She further added, “When Sanjay makes a story on a single mother ‘a criminal lawyer’ whose daughter gets kidnapped and she goes through trying circumstances, it's interesting to see how he is going to tell the story. When I came on board, I also had the same question. So I keep teasing him saying that ‘October mein, it's not just you, but even I am excited to see how the film eventually looks’. So I am equally curious and excited to see Sanjay Gupta's Jazbaa!”
Jazbaa also stars Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi and Anupam Kher and is all set to release in October.
So. like Aishwarya, are you also excited about this film?
