As per a report in Deccan Chronicle, Aish was already considering to work on Bhansali’s film when she got an offer to feature with hubby Abhishek in Kashyap’s next. And since she could only work on one film due to dates clashes, she decided to choose Gulab Jamun over Bhansali’s film.
The daily also quoted a source explaining, “Aishwarya had to choose between working with Bhansali and sharing screen space with her husband, as the dates for both films were clashing. And she chose the film with her husband. They haven’t worked together in eight years. And more importantly, both of them have fabulous roles in Gulab Jamun. They’re going to be playing characters they’ve never played before”.
