It's official! Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will reunite for director Rohit Shetty's next project.

The movie is a remake of the classic Kishore Kumar- Madhubala starer - 'Chalti ka Naam Gaadi'.

This much loved SRK - Aishwarya jodi spun magic in Devdas. It's now just a matter of time when we will see the two scorch the silver screen again. Kajol was earlier approached for the lead role opposite SRK, but things didn't work out.

Will this jodi be able to recreate the Kishore Kumar - Madhubala magic? You tell us!

When will this get official? Like director confirming etc? Waiting waiting....

great news...

She is the only one - hear me out- only bollywood actress - to make a comeback at 41 after having a 3 year maternity holiday with the khan himself who stands for the older generation superstar and ranbir kapoor, the current heartthrob and the most sought after banner, Karan johar!!! No 41 year old can dream of this. Salute ms rai!!

For that one anon who is burning because of this news...

Love this news.

#1 post & 30,000+ reads in under 24 hours. Well, then.

wish it was with Juhi or Madhuri

Does anybody know how much scope for performance Madhubala had in the original?

Great couple, but Rohit Shetty direction....uh-oh!

A BIG YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY CAN'T WAIT FOR CONFIRMATION YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS SRK N AISH WILL MAKE IT BIGGGGGGGGGGGGG

Inshallah is all I have to sayyyyy!

So happy

Yippie for srk-ash. They make an amazing pair! But after rohit shetty wouldn't it be renamed 'Udti ka naam gaadi' all his vehicles fly. :P

WOOHOOO! Dying to see them together.

King and Queen are back. Bring it on.

Movie success cant be translated from one language to another. If she succeeded in Tamil, which is not true by the way, that means she is accepted by audience there. Her success rate is pathetic and disastrous in Hindi and horrendous in Tamil too.

Aa ab laut chalein, Aur pyar ho gaya, Albela, hamara dil aapke paas hain, bhagat singh, khaki, umrao jaan, kuch na kaho, dhai akshar premke, shabd, Kyun ho gaya na,Ravan, dil ka rishta, Josh, action replay, Mohabbatein, sarkar raj, hum kisise kum nahin, action replay, guzaarish and guest appearances in Mela, hum tumhare...,Shakti ---- Such a pathetic and horrible record. Shame on PR firm to make any claims of her success in Hindi. Everyone has flops but NO ONE has these many flops and least of all, no one with such pathetic career graph will have audacity to make self claims that she is the biggest star India has ever seen. Who are you kidding?

Madhuri, Karishma, Rani, Preity, Kareena, PC, even Deepika are millions times bigger stars and have give spectacular and consistent hits over the years.

Don't hate Aishwarya or her career graph and increasing popularity even after age 40, hate the game....bae. Last time she was in a film was four years ago, last time she starred with any of the 3 Khans was more than a decade ago and yet she is still giving you sleepless nights? How is that her fault or problem? Let it go, boo boo.

More than half of the movies that you mentioned (i.e. Mohabbatein, Sarkar Raj, Guzaarish) were critically acclaimed films. Seems like you are mixing your own opinion with facts. By the way, she has more hit movies than most of those actresses. For example, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Taal, Raincoat, Guru, and Jodhaa Akbar. And this is based off of facts, if you know what that is. So who are you kidding?

Well said Anon #2 but don't sell Aishwarya short, most of the films you mentioned were critically acclaimed were that + hits as well (something not many actresses can boast of especially among her contemporaries) look at Anon #1 quoting her career graph and falsely remembering what hit and what didn't....hey bae, at least you remember her films (hit or no hit) which means she still matters in your scheme of things. It's so obvious that Anon #1 is just a jealous hater from a rival camp of an actress who is not as popular as Aishwarya or whose career has since gone the way of a so-called unsinkable ship.

I am talking about commercial success, which is the best metric of a commercial viability of an actor. I am not sure which producer is not interested in commercial viability. I mentioned 19 flops in which she had full fledged roles. This is a horrible record to have.

She had one peak more than a decade ago and glimmer of hope in 2006/7. That's it. This is hardly a mediocre career to begin with. Her career of 19 years can't match that of deepika's success, who started in 2007. Let us not even compare with the rest.

Aishwarya is THE BIGGEST FEMALE SUPERSTAR IN INDIA... This is a fact and it will always BURN you... Dont make a fool of yourself... She has had a consistent record in bollywood and regional films... Iruvar (critically acclaimed debut film), Jeans ( south filmfare best actress, official submission for Oscar from India), Kandukondain Kandukondain ( south filmfare best film), Ravanan (tamil hit), Endhiran (400 crore blockbuster) prove her record in Tamil films... She ruled over the hearts of audiences and critics in the Bengali masterpiece Choker Bali... Everybody knows her success in bollywood, HDDCS (best actress, blockbuster), Taal (best actress nomination, superhit), Mohabatein (supporting actress nomination, superhit), Josh (hit), Humara dil aapke pass hai (best actress nomination), Bhagat singh (critically acclaimed), Khaki (hit), Devdas (best actress, best film, blockbuster), Raincoat (National award winning movie, best actress nomination), Umrao Jaan (best actress nomination, flop), Guru (best actress nomination, hit), Dhoom 2 (best actress nomination, blockbuster), Jodha Akbar (best actress nomination, blockbuster), Sarkar Raj (hit), Guzaarish (critically acclaimed film, best actress nomination)... She has had flops too, but she is certainly more successful than the actresses you mentioned... Just before and after marraige, she has delivered a hat-trick of superhit films (Dhoom2, Guru, Jodha Akbar) with three consecutive best actress nominations for these films... Aishwarya's line-up of films bothers you immensely, so u come here to spew venom... Get a life... PV post this...

You can add as many tags as u want for every film of hers. That does not negate the fact that those films did not make money. She does not even come close to any of those actresses when we talk about commercial success. No comparison by any yardstick.

Who gives these titles anyway? Biggest superstar of India? What about maduri, karishma, kajol etc? What about deepika, PC, Karenena? Who are they? Super stars of Bollywood May be? That sounds right. They had a great career in Hindi.

audience has given her these titles becoz they love her..aish cant be compared to the actresses u mentioned becoz she is way ahead of them..dont blame Aish becoz your faves are on the losing end...

Yay for srk-ash...they are the biggest stars. I will actually be looking forward to a rohit shetty film now.

Srk-Ash are a dream. Hope rohit shetty does justice!

YIPPIE. Can't waiy!

Wonder who will play Srk's brothers..Any guesses? And which one will be Ashok, Kishore and Anup kumar..

So disappointed

Great!!

Who is confirming this news please? I don't see it confirmed anywhere except for Pinkvilla.

It is exclusive. Guess we will hear soon.

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The king and queen !!!

yay…this is good news…had enough of these senior actors romancing girls half their age…hope this starts a new trend of actors working with actresses who are closer to their age

THIS MAKES MY DAY

why they want to spoil good old movie, ash fans make it a big post, srks will make it 100billion movie from now itself!!!

If this is happening then I am the happiest person on earth.

she is exquisite and was no 1 but what is all this hype about her return every one is dotting their is and crossing ts what for aren't there there other talented women in b wood so fickle all these announcemnets about her films no one cares MAKE A MOVIE LASTS 3 hrs enjoy END OF THE STORY we don't need to know who signed what etc real uneccesary

They will spell magic like no other

Hail queen aishwarya!

Bollywood is running out of ideas, stories, directors, screenplay writer, hero ,heroines, original music practically everything. It's just ego polishing business of few stars and few families at public expenses. No wonder every film this year has under performed. If they continue doing like this then very soon regional films and international films will overtake it. Regional films have originality and cultural essence to it. And international films have good quality to it. Till then Bachchans , khans, Chopras and Kapoors will keep boring audiences.

Hope Ash does a mujra in bajiraomastaani and classical dance in Mohenjadaro

LOVE to see SRK-Aish again, not to keen on the Rohit Shetty part

Was that film a romance or action comedy? I really wanna see them in a romance together. They made such a great pairing in Devdas and Mohabbatein

So now Rohit Shetty can actually justify blowing cars up in this movie and ruin a classic comedy at the same time. Brilliant.

So no A listed actress is ready to work with King khan. And bachchan bahurani is back on ground otherwise she was exclusive for Mani and Slb and 'meaningful' cinema . Ash has no comic timing at all. I will definetly skip this film. I pray for Srk I think he is completely out of his mind.

Why her? Why not Pc, Vidya, Rani Kajol or karisma? All of them are better actresses and equally good looking . Forget age her last four films are flops that means general public don't want to see her on screen film makers don't get that? She had her prime. She enjoyed it a lot. Despite giving flops after after flops she always got A listed films. I feel for Pc and Vidya who take risk and carry films on their shoulder they never get to work with A lister directors. She didn't even try harder for it. She had all extra attention because that bachchan tag and because her oh do beauty. She got films not because of talent because of her special coonections and hype. Whenever one good films is declared we want Ash and we want Ash Why? She is superstar know why she want Khan and Kapoors and Johars? people who talk about khans well their films make tons of money if Jazba makes even 50 cr then i will be surprise.

Aishwarya last films were not a flop her Ravaan in Hindi it was a flop but in tamil it was a huge sucess and Enthihan was a hit Action REply Flop and Guzzarish HIt

Rohit shetty is not a critically acclaimed A list director. He is a masala movie director

You really have no idea what you are talking about. Aishwarya was taking risk and carrying films before a PC and a Vidya. Do your homework.

Love the way Ash BURNs you! LOL! Her last film (Guzaarish) was a critical success and her second last film (Endhiran) was a 100 crore blockbuster... Dont be so jealous...

endhiran is 400 crore blockbuster!

Yes, Enthiran was surely Aish's movie just like Krrish was PCs!! ;)

LOL Burrrrrn!!! Any actress would jump in for such an opportunity , but ash turned down films like and now she has finally agreee. And those actresses you mentioned are temporary.. ASH is a wayyyyyyy bettter actres and biggest female superstar. Not their fault if they want a big heroine too.

Those actresses I mentioned above are award winning successful actresses. Come out of Ash bubble and check. All of them can carry films on their shoulder. Answer my few questions.. Name atleast 5 blockbuster (not semi hit or average please) , five Filmfare+ national wards of Ash's career. Name single film in Ash entire career she carrying on her shoulder. Because above all mentioned actress has that. Despite the fact that they are so like any middleclass urban girls. They scored those hits and awards with small budget films too example Fashion, Kahani, Mardani to name few. On top of that two of them are not even from Bollywood background. Big heroines either have strong box office records or they have stong award records or both for example Sri and Madhuri . Aishwarya lacks both. Despite being mega star today Ash needs Karan's and Srk's piggy back it explains a lot.

Anon #1, can I call you that? Because I'm pretty sure it's the same anon-troll who is posting the same message over and over again like a broken record. Listen, respect to Madhuri...Sridevi...PC...Vidya and the rest who deserve respect and kudos from your list of actresses but Aishwarya is Aishwarya and they are who they are. Aishwarya doesn't need 5 filmfare awards to prove that. Go and harass those who have spent well over a decade in Bollywood and never won a single "BEST ACTRESS" award. She has three acting filmfares, numerous nominations and other accolades and that's plenty. Her career has lasted till now, despite the cold period when she couldn't act with Sallu (still not acting with him) or SRK and never acted with Aamir. Mercifully, she has never given a flop with a Khan. She was there when Dia Mirza, Sneha Ullal, Aditi Gowitrikar, Celina Jaitley, Deepika Padukone et. al. were all dubbed the next her and she is still there now. BRIDE & PREJUDICE was made on a budget of $7 million and made back $24.7 million at the global box office (approximately Rs 150 Crores no? That too before the 100 Crore club) She gave CHOKHER BALI, RAINCOAT, GURU, JODHAA AKBAR, I HAVE FOUND IT, PROVOKED, RAVANAN as well as your standard HDDCS, DEVDAS, TAAL, DHOOM II, ROBOT so boo boo, she might not be your best actress but she owes you nothing, zilch, nada!

5 blockbusters - HDDCS, Devdas, Dhoom 2, Jodha-Akbar, Endhiran... Filmfare award for best actress HDDCS, Devdas, Jeans (south filmfare) 9 nominations (tied with Shabana Azmi and Sridevi)... Choker-bali, Provoked, Bride and Prejudice, Umrao Jaan are just few films she carried on her shoulders... Aishwarya has paved the way for the priyankas and vidyas of bollywood and even they themselves have acknowledged it... Rani has never won National award, so is she any less than PC or Vidya? Aishwarya was contender for National award for Choker Bali, Raincoat, Devdas... FYI, Aishwarya too comes from a middle class family from Mangalore... Its useless telling this to you... Aishwarya has clearly BURNed out ur soul... Dont come again with more crap...

One of my dream onscreen couples. I hope this news is true. I want to watch Aishwarya-SRK, Aishwarya-Hrithik and Aishwarya-Salman although the third will never happen. I equally want some director to cast Deepika-Hrithik and a multistarrer with Aishwarya,Deepika,Hrithik and SRK in one film.

omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg My queen and king are finally backkkk!!

I always wantred srk and ash back togther but not with rohit he is a loser... am still sad for ash and srk turn down sanjay bansali next i prefer to see them unsee ranveer and deepika am tired to see these two togther..but still nothing confirt yet

Ash almost confirmed the film on her birthday. Always knew she was doing it!

Rohit has said this is NOT a remake, so we cant say that... But, remake or not, i m excited to see SRK-Ash back together onscreen...

I'm in the minority but I really think Ash-SRK don't have chemistry at all. For me, they look akward as a romantic pair. Also, Ash isn't a really good actress. Her dialogue delivery is weak as is her voice. She doesn't emote well. And SRK hasn't been doing good werk either lately so not really excited about this. Probably going to give it a miss (if it is true).

This film is pretty much confirmed with Srk-Aishwarya. Not sure it is a remake of CKNG though.
Happy to see the awesome Srk-Ash back together...so can't wait! Ash will always be the biggest female star of the country. Period.

OMMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! no way no way....i hope this isn't a lie

Yay!! Just change the director though:D

YEAH ! of course Aish is way way better than current line of actresses :P

Why Why???? Why SRK???? No....
Aish Better work with young actors ! You still the most b'ful on earth !
SRK is no match :((

Cant wait to see this movie

This is why Aishwarya can turn down Farah Khan and Gowariker.

Both are gorgeous and very charming and have great chemistry. Would watch anything with them in it together. SRK is a great actor as well.

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Aishwarya seems to have quite a few big movies lined up soon, to be honest Jazbaa seems the most interesting.

Who is confirming this news?

even madhubala should be happy that THE AISHWARYA RAI is doing her role.

I hate it when people try to remake classics. Very few remakes have been successful, and that's because people will always compare them with the originals and somehow will fall short because there's a reason why the originals have been so successful - it was unique. The remakes work with an idea that's already been worked with.

Last time they worked together for a remake (Devdas), it was a critically acclaimed blockbuster... Besides, Rohit said this film is NOT a remake...

Aishwarya redefines female superstars

Oh my god,cant compare madhubala with ash. Ash will trash it like all other other movies. With the star cast flop is written all over.... These movies need younger cast, wonder why the directorsroducers don't get it.

So excited. Can't wait!!!

I'm a big big big big fan of salman, but don't mistaken salmans fan with hate relationship with Aishwarya . We wish her all the best for this movie. But again the director is putting me off

Great srk and Aishwarya coming together, im not so keen about the director, he makes unreal idiotic movies ...
sanjay leela bansali is different level of director, so we won't keep our hope as devdas. Otherwise without this director and different script this pair would've rock this decade of bollywood with storm .

Why a Rohit shetty movie? I'll skip it.

Definitely! Their chemistry was sizzling in Devdas and other collaborations between the two. I'm sure this will be great team work too. Altho SRK may have very unprofessional in the past towards Aishwarya but thats the past now. Aishwarya is in a much happier space now n I feel its good that they are coming together again. Its never healthy to hold grudges for too long. Waiting for other announcements with bated breath. :)

I'm not sure if you have an employee in your company and it happened that her partner is disturbing the work flow of your assignments. Would you keep her for work or look for somone who will do the job without any damages. I think SRK did the right thing professionally when it comes to chalte chalte. No one work with somone who might destroy work of 100 of people in a film. She might not be the reason for it directly but her boy diffident back then did the damage...hence it should be replaced. SRK himself said as a professional he is not sorry but as a friend in personal level he is.

Kudos to Aishwarya - redefining the way female actors are treated in this country!!! God bless and more power to you girl!

Shahrukh - not a big fan of yours, but your generosity has won me over. You have put aside all the negativity and simple agreed to work with Aishwarya. Commendable and God bless you too!

If Madhuri Dixit was younger, she was the best person to enact the role of Madhubala. No matter how beautiful Aish is, Madhubala / Madhuri are classic Indian beauties and share similar charms and aura. Also why a remake? Is bollywood seriously lacking good scripts? PV POST THIS!!!!

whats next remake of Mughal e azam ?
so stupid, where's the originality?
leave the oldies alone, they are a reflection of a bygone era, a heritage, no need to mess around with them

Im tried of theos new actress I want Rani Aisha Kajol Karishma need to comback

My dream is to see them together!

Wait, what? Few days back, one of the bollywood site confirmed Kajol is opposite srk in the movie, so I have to wait for Rohit's official announcement for the actress. And, no the movie is not remake at all, Rohit and srk both confirmed it so many times, so that news is completely false.

true

I am so psyched about this! He overacts with his head movements, lip quivering and crying while biting on his lower lip and she cannot act to save her life.

you can skip this and watch the new talented sid-shradha bunch movies lol

Srk and Aish could be true, but the movie is not remake of any movie, both srk and Rohit confirmed it like millions of time. Btw, few days back there was news Kajol was confirmed with srk, so I am still waiting for Rohit's official announcement.

Its unofficial no one is confirmed in it. Only SRK

One and only Aishwarya!!!!!!!!!!

Is she postponing having a second child or they are done with one....Looks like there may be other movies on the horizon too , doesn't leave time for having a kid.

I hope this is true; the media keeps getting my hopes up with rumors about Aishwarya's new movies. Then it turns out to be a lie. :[

Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! Dying of happiness right now!!! This golden couple returns after so many years, this is amazing. This movie would be a hit even before releases. I'm so happy that i don't even care crappy rohit is directing it

I would buy any SRK ash movie. They are awesome together.

Great news. Missed the Devdas/Josh/Mohabbatein pairing.

Wow. It was Ranbir yesterday, SRK today. Great going. Who is tomorrow? Where are the other heroines in Bollywood? They might be in real film sets doing shooting for a film.

Nice try! Is it how film announcements are made? Or is it how desperation is conveyed?

wow

Ash is truly back to rule! Great to see her back.

I'd like to see SRK & KAJOL and by the way this is not official.. soo there's still hope for the best jodi.

Beauty wins! It has to win! Ash proves it yet again.

No, thanks.

Aish is going to ruin the movie!

i hope it's true , i will love to see srk and aishwarya again they have a great chemistry but it will be better if its an original story than a remake

Only and only Aishwarya can play Madhubala's role. WOW. What a comeback! Her lineup is HUGE now + heard Mani ratnam film is happening too.

woooooooooooooooooooooooooooow gread news my 2 besti
welcome back devdas magic

Would have been magical if it had been with kajol

Wow, Aishwarya becomes the remake Queen. The Readers remake 'Ae dil mushkil' , this Chalti ka naam gaddi' & most probably 'Jazbaa' is Angelina Jolie's 'Original Sin'. Am truly excited about all of them. Hopefully History's first Remake Mahenjodaro becomes her project too after movie outing with Ashutosh Gowarikar, im very sure about it . And Hopefully, Chalti ka naam gaddi will be her first release instead of Jazbaa.

Kajol would've suited the role perfectly, i bet they didn't want to pay her what she deserved,boo. Anyway, this is a good opportunity for Aishwarya to shine, everybody wants to watch a fun love story so it is sure to be a hit.

AISHWARYA-THE QUEEN!! Everyone can already pack their bags.

what a nice return

Oh God. Honestly W.H.Y????! ENOUGH of Buddays in Bollywood We are seeing the same OLD people since Middle Age ! Please STOP ! ENOUGH is ENOUGH we WANT new FRESH FACES !

YAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

this is the most ridiculous thing i've read in a while -_-

wanted either of the 2 miss world's with him because they are my favourites (aish, PC), because they are so gorgeous. so i'm happy that 1 of em got it, but rohit's movie it will be like 20% romance and 80 % action or just time pass wanted more of a romantic dirrector, and to be honest everyone kinda has an idea now how his films are and arent that intrested anymore they are just dragging on and on anyway i'm happy for the pair but let's see, if anyone knows the story fill me in please so to have an idea.

Great to see Aishwariya back with a bang .She certainly has the looks to match up to Madhubala , but I wish Shetty came up with something original . Today's TOI has a report with KJO announcing his new movie called Ae Dil ae Mushkil with Aishwariya , Ranbir & Anushka . It's truly lovely to have Indian actresses resuming their acting career...just like their male co stars who seem to go on forever .

NOO

Agree with you on Aishwarya Joe. Ash is a gamechanger for Bollywood heroines. Her juniors are lucky. Anyhow Rohit Shetty confirmed this film is NOT a remake of Chalti Ka Naam Hai Gaadi long back.

How is she a gamechanger? She hasn't done anything to pave the way for other heroines nor did she raise the glass ceiling. Is she a gamechanher because she has a child? Lots of actresses have children and still act, past and present: Nutan, Jaya Bachchan, Rakhee, Sri Devi, Madhuri, Juhi, Kajol etc. They are the real gamechangers in Bollywood. Ash is lucky that others paved the way for her.

Ok WOW but where are the official quotes?

SRK-Aish onscreen YES!! Rohit shetty as director of a classic remake? NOOOOO!! He's one of the worst director out there! N why remaking every film?? Dont they have own idea? Their stealing others stories n earning money of someone elses hardwork. Btw that pic of aish n srk is just divine beautifully captured! But the pic has been filtered in white the original is darker with yellow light as undertone..

Oh my God!! I cannot wait! ! He overacts and she cannot act!

where is the news? Omggg i'm excited
