Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be back on the big screen after a huge gap of almost 5 years. Her last movie was Guzaarish directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali that also starred Hrithik Roshan.
Aishwarya will be making her comeback with Jazbaa that is being directed by Sanjay Gupta and the cast of the film, Irrfan Khan, Anupam Kher, Shabana Azmi, Aishwarya and the also smaller cast members as well, all gathered up for a script reading session yesterday.
Apparently the release of the movie will be futher delayed owing to Irrfan Khan's health.The director of the film confirmed that the shooting has been put on hold owing to Irrfan's health issues.
"Yes, Irrfan has undergone a minor surgery and has been advised bed rest. His recovery is my priority and the shoot shall commence once he is fit. I can't say anything about the exact date of the shoot but the script reading will definitely take place on Tuesday," Gupta was quoted saying to a leading tabloid.
The script reading session was organized as they wanted the cast to get comfortable with each other.
"The makers want the actors and other technicians to be comfortable with one another, and let them understand each other's working styles before the film starts rolling. That's why the entire primary, as well as secondary cast (of about 17-18 actors) plus the heads of the other departments of the movie, will be present at the script-reading session," revealed an insider before the script reading session.
Aishwarya as usual looked gorgeous, so take a look at the script reading session pictures.
