Mumbai : Bachchans are back to bang the theatre screen. Real life husband-wife Aishwarya and Abhishek will soon be seen together, after eight long years, as mentioned by mid-day sources. Yes, the couple was last seen together in Mani Ratnam's 2010 film Raavan and now, they will share same screen space in Sarvesh Mewara's forthcoming film Gulab Jamun (produced by Anurag Kashyap). Isn’t the news fair enough to raise the excitement level?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, during the promotions of Fanney Khan, confirmed the news and told mid-day: "AB (Abhishek Bachchan) and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyaan. The 44-year-old actress also mentioned that she thinks that they "fit the narrative perfectly" and added, "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 Manmarziyaan, 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."

Aishwarya also mentioned that their pick of roles is has no connection with their personal relationship and that they always approach a story as "individual characters." She told mid-day: "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?"

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have co-starred in several films including Guru, Dhoom 2, Umrao Jaan, Sarkar Raj and Kuchh Naa Kaho among others. Abhishek got hitched with Aishwarya in 2007 and they are parents to 6-year-old Aaradhya.
