We are finally one step closer to the comeback that every Bollywood buff has been waiting for. After five painfully long years, Aishwarya Rai is all set to return to the silver screen with Jazbaa.
Over the years, Aishwarya has successfully donned many hats. Action, drama, romance… There’s nothing she hasn’t done. However, her performance in Jazbaa shows us exactly why she’s one of the biggest names in Bollywood.
The trailer follows Anuradha Verma (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), a lawyer whose daughter’s life is threatened by a criminal looking to exploit Anuradha’s legal skills. She must then race against time to rescue her daughter. Luckily, she has a little help from Inspector Yohan (Irrfan Khan).
The first trailer for Jazbaa is a high-octane, action-packed look at the lengths people go to for their families. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is brilliant as the woman trying to strike a balance between being a mother and being a lawyer. In fact, we already love her performance, even though we’ve only seen two and a half minutes of the film! Being a mother has clearly made it easier for her to relate to her character’s anguish, and that really shows in her performance.
We also can’t wait to watch Irrfan Khan in the film. There’s no doubt that the actor will be the perfect fit for his role. But it’s his dialogue-baazi that we’re most excited about. His tongue-in-cheek references to Singham and Amitabh Bachchan, along with his witty one-liners, have us itching for more!
We know you can’t wait for Aishwarya‘s return to the silver screen either. October 9 can’t come soon enough! Until then, you can enjoy the trailer right here:
