Abhimaan once more

Now, this is called truly following in your parents' footsteps. According to industry insiders, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai are set to recreate the magic once created by Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan in Hrishikesh Mukherjee's classic, Abhimaan.

Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai have been signed on for Rajeev Menon's next film, which is based on Abhimaan, where the sizzling chemistry between Amitabh and Jaya had once set the screen ablaze. The film will go on the floors in February 2009, and has music by A R Rahman.

Our source says, “Rajeev was very keen to make the film with Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan. The film has the backdrop of music and both Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek are playing singers in the film. In fact, Aishwarya was so excited about the film that she immediately gave dates for the shooting. The husband-wife duo is currently working on Mani Ratnam's film, Ravana, which is based on the Ramayana. After that, they will start shooting for Rajeev's film. Rajeev had earlier worked with Aishwarya Rai in Kandukondain Kandukondain, which released in 2000.”

When contacted, Rajeev Menon confirmed the news, saying, “Yes it is true that I am making a film with Abhishek and Aishwarya. I will be starting the film in February and A R Rahman has composed the music.”

When we asked him what his film is about, he said he was busy, and hung up.


Subeer Kumar (Amitabh) is on his way to becoming India's top pop singer. He has no intention of getting married, but when he visits his Durga Mausi, he falls in love with the simple Uma, by whose voice he's enchanted. He marries her and returns to Mumbai, where he announces that he will never sing without Uma again. However, Subeer encourages Uma to sing alone. Soon her success overtakes his, and the seeds of jealousy begin to grow in him.
