Rumors of an item song by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in her Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s under-production film Ram Leela have been making the rounds lately, making one wonder if the much-missed diva would dance her way back to the screen after her self-imposed sabbatical in favour of motherhood.
However, the filmmaker completely nixes the rumours. Says Bhansali, “First it was Sonakshi Sinha, then Madhuri Dixit. Now it’s Aishwarya. None of these rumours are true.” While Aishwarya remained unavailable for comment, a source close to her commented, “At the moment Aaradhya is Ash’s one and only priority.
Yes, she is slowly looking at scripts again, and some very good ones. But she
gets tempted, and then again she decides now is not the time. She doesn’t want to miss out a single moment in Aaradhya’s growing-up years.”
But Aishwarya may say yes to the Masoom remake to be produced by Himesh Reshammiya and directed by Bedabrata Pain. For one, it is a story that she loves. Secondly, the makers are willing to adjust the schedules according to her convenience.
Most of all, the film co-stars Abhishek, and Aaradhya can be with her parents as and when she wills. “But an item song? No way!” concludes the source.
