Speaking about his directorial venture Happy Anniversary, reportedly starring Bollywood star couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, noted adman Prahlad Kakkar said the couple have still not taken a look at the script.
"We are working on it...we still have to present the script to both Ash and Abhishek so that they can finally accept or not accept...they are waiting for us to present the script to them, then they will decide," Kakkar told reporters Thursday night on the sidelines of the Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta student-run international business summit Intaglio.
Happy Anniversary, to be directed by Kakkar, will be produced by Gaurang Doshi and deals with the anatomy of marriage. Kakkar also clarified that his team is looking at South Africa as a possible filming locale. "We haven't decided yet but South Africa is ready to give us massive subsidy so its very tempting to go there."
It might sound a little strange, but what's interesting is that Gaurang Doshi, the producer of Happy Anniversary was once accused of domestic violence on his ex-girlfriend Flora Saini.Hence, Aishwarya had once turned down working on a project titled Happy Birthday since Gaurang was the producer of the film. During this entire episode, Doshi had even admitted that due to his problems with Flora, Aishwarya decided not be part of his project.
If Aishwarya accepts to work in Happy Anniversary, tongues are likely to wag! However, if Ash were to work on this project, it would only be due to her friendship with Kakkar and the script if that interests her.
