While the reports of Abhishek Bachchan convincing his actress wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to sign JAZBA have been doing the rounds for quite some time, the actor in an interview rubbished the news.

”That is absolute rubbish. It is undermining Aishwarya as an actor. I don’t think she needs anybody to lobby for her or insist her to do anything. She is who she is. We forget that she is the most successful actress we have,” clarified Abhishek when asked whether he insisted Aishwarya to accept Sanjay Gupta’s JAZBA.
He further added, ”I didn’t have to persuade Aishwarya to do a movie. The script and Sanjay (Gupta) persuaded her to do the film.”
Interestingly, there have also been reports that the star couple would be working together soon. Probe Abhishek about it and he reveals, ”No, not right now. We would love to work together in a film, but nothing concrete is happening right now.”
Meanwhile, Abhishek is currently gearing up for his next film HAPPY NEW YEAR and is also busy with the on-going football league where he co-owns the Chennai team.
