The buzz in the market is that now Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is ready for a comeback and she has been sounded out by Sanjay Leela Bhansali to make it through an item song for his upcoming film RAM LEELA! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has an organic link with Bhansali. Before she took the sabbatical for motherhood, it was Bhansali's film GUZAARISH in which she had acted. Besides, it was, as a matter of fact Bhansali, who really pushed her into the Big league with HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, after which she never looked back. It was Bhansali again who pitted Ash against Madhuri Dixit in DEVDAS, where Ash held her ground with panache against Madhuri. No wonder Bhansali has been a sort of magic charm or catalyst for Ash whenever she needed a push to her career.
AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN and SANJAY LEELA BHANSALI
Coming back from a sabbatical an item song is perhaps the best way to revive one's presence amongst the heart of the fans. Ash after all has been the original item girl for Hindi cinema, when she made her appearance in BUNTY AUR BABLI with 'Kajrare' song, which set the trend for mainstream heroines to appear in item songs thenceforth to improve the visibility quotient of a film. Even a Madhuri Dixit also succumbed to it in YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI with her ghagra song.
For Ash the catch for her could be that a Kajrare happened eight years ago and after Kajrare she did not do an item song. On the flip side, the positive point for her would be that, if she agrees to do the item song for RAM LEELA, she can rest assured that the song would be trail blazing. After all, nobody picturises a song and conceptualizes it in the manner in which Sanjay Leela Bhansali does it. For Deepika Padukone it would be an interesting connection that she would be associated with two such films where biggies of Hindi cinema would have done an item number as Madhuri did it for YJHD and Ash could do it for RAM LEELA.
It indeed would be a USP if finally the item number of Ash happens in RAMLEELA. Well, fans would be waiting to see how the cookie crumbles.
