We approached Aishwarya for the part and are glad she agreed to come on-board.” Praising the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress, she said, ““Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is an icon by herself and working with her will be a sincere privilege. I have always admired her for the way she has made her mark in this industry and awaited an opportunity to work with her. Now that I got a role that I could only imagine her portraying it, I did not want to let this opportunity go. It's like a dream come true and I look forward to starting work with her”.
The actress was on a break due to her personal reasons, but recently she was quoted saying, “I took a break for the past five months because of personal reasons. I'm glad I did. It meant a lot for me personally so I didn't have any professional meetings. I started last week and I liked two subjects already. So, as and when we feel the need and the time is right, we will share the news with you. But I have just started listening to scripts. Until then, I had taken time off for work for my family, especially for my mother.”
