Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, who have worked together in ‘Raavan’ were supposed to reunite for Sarvesh Mewara’s ‘Gulab Jamun’, however,  they seem to have changed their mind and decided to walk out of the film. It is to be noted that during the media interaction last year, former Miss World and ‘Manmarziyaan’ actor had said that they are keen to work for the film.

“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 a 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 by a tabloid as saying.

Later, Abhishek told Pinkvilla, “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 sources who are said to be very close to the couple have revealed that Abhishek and Aishwarya have decided to walk out of the film but there is no official announcement has been made as of now.

Another source added, “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.” 

The source said that this is yet to be known why they have opted to out of Sarvesh Mewara’s project. The stars are also reported to have conveyed it to the team that they would no longer be a part of this film.
