15 years ago, Rohan Sippy directed his debut film, Kuch Naa Kaho, and it starred beauty queen, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan. Though the movie was declared a flop at the box office, the Bachchan Bahu is all set to reunite with Sippy after one and a half decade. Their upcoming film will be a thriller and Aish will play the lead protagonist in it. Says a source close to the development, “The thriller will be centred around Aishwarya’s character. It will also have a younger romantic lead, two popular stars, alongside Aishwarya. But she will play the main protagonist.”

The romantic thriller will be jointly produced by Siddharth Anand and KriArj Entertainment and it will go on the floor later this year. It will be shot in Australia and Mumbai. A source close to the actress has informed a leading portal, “Aishwarya is very excited about this project. She and Rohan go back a long way. Rohan Sippy is one of Abhishek’s closest friends. After she did Rohan’s Kuch Na Kaho opposite Abhishek, Aishwarya was supposed to star in Rohan Sippy’s Bluff Master with Abhishek. But she had to be replaced by Priyanka Chopra at the last minute. To be coming together with Rohan after so many years is fantastic. Aishwarya will be going in for a completely new look in this film.”

Meanwhile, Aishwarya, who is coming back to films after 2 years, will be seen in KriArj Entertainment’s Fanne Khan and it is also reported that she will be next seen in two more films of the same production house.
