Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Will she, won’t she? Much has been speculated about the comeback of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after her long break. The actress has been on a hiatus for three years now and enjoyed motherhood after the birth of daughter Aaradhya Bachchan.

Now that the little one is two years old, the actress can take a breather and get back to her career. A director from the South Indian film industry, P Vasu, had claimed he had roped in Aishwarya for his action film. He had even released a look poster with Ash in an animation form.

But Aishwarya had denied signing on for the film. It was also reported that she will star with rival Sushmita Sen in Farah Khan’s Happy New Year that also stars her husband Abhishek Bachchan along with Shahrukh Khan.

And now, fresh reports in The Indian Express say the pretty ex-Miss World has gone back to her mentor for a film. Yes, Aishwarya will star in Mani Ratnam’s movie opposite Telugu superstars Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna.

This has been confirmed by Ratnam’s wife and producer Suhasini Mani Ratnam. The movie is apparently a spy thriller like Hollywood’s Mission Impossible and Bourne series.

But let’s wait for a confirmation from Aishwarya, what say?
