Aishwarya Rai is coming back to Bollywood films after taking time off from acting following the birth of her daughter. The stunning actress has been rumoured to be associated with several projects but in a recent interview Prahlad Kakkad, the director of the film "Happy Anniversary" disclosed that he had spoken with her and she is expected to be signing on to be part of the movie. In the movie she will star opposite her husband, film star Abhishek Bachchan and alongside her past rival, Sushmita Sen.
Entertainment insiders upon hearing the news that Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen would be working together immediately thought back to the legendary Bollywood rivalry that existed between these two women which went back to their beauty pageant days when Aishwarya Rai lost to Sushmita Sen in the Miss India pageant. The fact that Aishwarya Rai has put the rivalry behind her for this movie suggests that the script of this movie is excellent and will provide her the opportunity to display her outstanding emotional acting range in the movie.
In "Happy Anniversary" the story begins with her at the age of 21 and over the course of eight years the drama of being in a bad marriage, dealing with marital strife and also the challenge of being pregnant with twins during the marriage. The role is very compelling for this beauty queen who is known for her portrayal of vulnerable, emotionally damaged women in the various acting parts that she has played throughout her career.
Entertainment insiders have noted that while Aishwarya Rai has always been committed to looking exceptionally beautiful she is currently working out extremely hard in an attempt to lose more weight prior to facing the cameras and speculation is that it might be due to both the new project and the fact that her past rival will be part of the cast. Film insiders are predicting that this project will be her comeback project and Aishwarya Rai will put on an exceptional performance in this movie and will look great.
