After Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar Raj, the Bachchans (Amitabh, Aishwarya and Abhishek) may team up together yet again in Taalismaan. Says a source, "Once Abhishek and Amitabh were finalised in Ram Madhvani's Taalismaan, the Bachchans thought it might be a good idea to add Aishwarya to the cast. They believe that she is perfect for the role of princess Chandrakanta."
The source further adds, "It is believed that the Bachchans requested Anil Ambani, (who is co-producing Taalismaan with Vinod Chopra) to cast Ash in the film but the Eklavya director isn't convinced about the casting."
In the past, Vinod has approached Aishwarya twice for a movie and she had refused. And now the producer is standing his ground. He feels that Chandrakanta should be played by a 'fresh' princess. He also feels that Ash had played a princess in Jodhaa Akbar far too recently.
Amitabh Bachchan denies that he had suggested his bahu's name to Ambani, "Not true," he states, but he confesses that the trio would be willing to come together. He asks, "If the script demands it, why not?" The trio have been offered films together. Ask the Big B if they're considering those offers. All he says is, "We have, but nothing has been finalised as yet."
