Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen in the film Fanne Khan this year. The film also stars Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles.
As reported by IANS, in an interaction with the media at Cannes Aishwarya opened up about the break she took from her work and her choices in films.
She revealed that during her school days, she was very girlish with her choices. "I think I was very school girlish in my choices. I was very good at keeping with schedules ,and because of that I kind of walked away from some very great films and opportunities because I would be sincere to schedules. Now when I think back, I should have maybe been more fierce and aggressive with wanting the films and allowed the schedules to figure themselves out as I have see a lot of colleagues have worked over the years."
She said that she has no regrets when it comes to films she has acted in. "There are so many stories to be told, look at the population of the world. There are enough films and enough work to do," said the actor.
Aishwarya made a comeback after a long time with Sanjay Gupta's Jazbaa (2015). The film, however, tanked at the box office. About the same, she states, "Recently, there was a colleague who asked me, 'Was 'Jazbaa' the comeback vehicle you wanted?' I was like, 'Guys, it was a script, I liked the idea and I went with it'. I don't want to play into how one has to go about things."
"I came in from Miss World, so because I experienced blast of stardom so early, I, from the very beginning -- from Mani Ratnam to date -- made choices from my heart, and tried being myself. I ended up doing my own thing and not following patterns that existed before, after or what is the natural trajectory of a leading lady in our industry. I think that's why people think I end up breaking preconceived norms. And that wonderfully continues," added Ash.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said that she enjoys working and even being on a break. The Devdas actor said, "When I took a break with Aaradhya and even now, I get asked, 'Why don't we see more of you?' Yes, I want to do more films. I have been a little easy on my time planning. I have happily played mummy to Aaradhya and thrown work around here and there. Even now when I am offered a good script, I feel like doing but then I think, 'Let me take one more holiday this month. I will do the next one'. I think this attitude needs to change."
