Aishwarya not working with abhishek

Aishwarya Rai has refuted rumours that she was to play the female lead opposite her husband Abhishek Bachchan in Ashutosh Gowariker’s next Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se. The actress says that the director knew about her packed schedule and the discussion never took place.

Recent media reports suggested that Aishwarya was to play the lead role before Asin was finalised for the film opposite actor Abhishek. But both – the actress and filmmaker – deny it.

“I don’t have the dates right now as my schedule diary is super packed. This film (Khelein Hum…) starts next month. So there never was that possibility,” Aishwarya, who played Rajput princess Jodhabai in Gowariker’s historical epic Jodhaa Akbar, told IANS.

“And since Ashu (Ashutosh Gowariker) is a close friend and his main lead is my husband, Abhishek obviously knew it.
