Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who last worked together in Raavan, were all set to reunite on the big screen for Sarvesh Mewara’s Gulab Jamun. Both Abhishek and Aishwarya has confirmed the same during their media interactions in 2018. “AB [Abhishek] and I have agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyan. The script was offered a year and half back. We had agreed on the idea then. However, it was around the same time that AB decided to take time-out. After the hiatus, he returned with Manmarziyan, which coincidentally is directed by Anurag Kashyap. That's when the chatter around Gulab Jamun began again, and we finally came on board. It’s a beautiful script and we fit the narrative perfectly,” Aishwarya had quoted to a tabloid. 

Later, Abhishek had exclusively revealed to us about the project. He had said, “Gulab Jamun is a very sweet script which Sarvesh Mewara has written and he is going to be directing it. It's the film we both liked very much and we both really want to do. When we will be doing it, we haven't decided.” Now, a source in the know has revealed to us that the Bachchan couple has opted out of the film and an official announcement is soon going to follow.

“Abhishek and Aishwarya were keen to do the film. But they had suggested certain changes too. While things were being worked out, the two seem to have had a change of mind. And now they have decided to not be a part of this movie,” reveals a source.

Adds another source close to the actors, “Why Abhishek and Aishwarya have decided to not do this project isn’t known yet. But the stars have conveyed it to the team that they would no longer be doing this film.”

Well, only time will tell as to what went wrong with this project. 

Meanwhile, all the Aishwarya-Abhishek fans will have to wait some more to see their favourite Jodi on the big screen!


They spread this Gulab Jamun rumor in 2015. There were lots of articles saying Abhi-Ash were doing a movie called Gulab Jamun. Then suddenly one day a news said that they have refused the movie because of something. Now this Gulab Jamun drama continued in 2018 to keep this flop couple in news and surprise.... there's an article saying that movie won't be happening.

Try are very much together & still in love but as usual guys cannot wait to comment

not surprised haha

no matter how hard u try to be part of wedding season... singing ur whirlwind like stories.. we do not accept you

flop couple desperate PR

gulab jamun will taste better now

yes this is expected because the movie was never planned initially.. this is all setup

Won't be surprised if Reshma or Abhi made the secret call
to the makers.

Good riddance

Aishwarya's career is all about spreading rumors of films and then officially denying it to show that she is still in demand

Smart move by Abhi after a long time. He should work with challenging roles and new actors.

“Why Abhishek and Aishwarya have decided to not do this project isn’t known yet.'' Just look at them and you'll know the reason. They are no longer a couple and are heading for a divorce.

I like Gulab Jamun again now.

That means when the film is out, we'll have to bear some interviews of Aish saying it was offered to her first.

Things are not going well between them. Divorce is coming sooner than a film of theirs together.

''When we will be doing it, we haven't decided.” Who is ''we''? Makers or the Bachchan couple.

Think they are not together anymore!

Thank you

If both of them have gone out of the movie then they should get replaced by Sidharth Malhotra and Anushka Sharma. That would be cool & new pair.

Both are not so happening right now . Who in thier right minds will sign these two togther . I think this is all just PR .

Glad to hear it. Abhishek needs to focus on his personal journey as an actor. He proved his acting chops in Manmarziyaan. There's no need to make films with Aishwariya. He must choose good scripts with challenging roles. Aish needs to give up acting

He was the worst part of Manmaarziyaan. Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee outperformed him by a hundred times.

he was the weakest one in it so thats some chops right there lol

If you think he was the weakest in Manmarziyaan, you probably belong to that backward mass who are fooled by over-the-top acting. They confuse overacting with acting.

They’re not in demand guess no one will miss them even though they’re still trying to be around

Great news

what else is new.

The movie was never offer to them in the first place to begin with. I read somewhere that the director said he never offer them any movie together. They were the one spread it.
