Abhimaan is a 1973 Bollywood/Drama film, which had revolved about a popular singer encourages his wife to sing but marital discord sets in when her popularity surpasses his and jealousy rages.
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, one of the most celebrated Bollywood couples also have historically displayed amazing chemistry on-screen.
The two are heavily sought-after for the precise reason. There had been news doing the rounds that Anurag Kashyap and even Mani Ratnam, who’s cast the pair in two of his directorials previously, have been after the two.
But, the latest rumour is that the two have been approached for the remake of the iconic ‘Abhimaan,’ which incidentally starred Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan.
The same report also said that, the two have turned the offer down. Well, fans might have to wait a while longer to see the two back together on-screen.
“Abhishek and Aishwarya are still bombarded with a plethora of scripts. However, they are quite wary of the kind of films they would like to do together”.
Abhishek especially was of the opinion that Abhimaan is the kind of cult classic that should remain untouched,” a source said.
