The Bachchans are returning to the big screen together.
Speaking to Mid-day, Ash confirmed that she and her husband Abhishek Bachchan will be sharing screen space in upcoming film Gulab Jamun.
"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," she said.
The couple was offered the project a year and a half ago but Abhishek was caught up with his other film at the time.
"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 is a beautiful script, and we fit the narrative perfectly."
But the couple first saw how they felt about the script, individually. "We have got many scripts, and at times, we got tempted too. But then, we discuss it out loud. We take stock and say, 'Does it excite us?' Why should marriage define our choices? Shouldn't we be actually approaching the story as individual actors?"
The film is a Sarvesh Mewara directorial and is apparently a "slice-of-life drama", Ash and Abhishek will be coming together onscreen after eight years, their last film being Raavan (2010), "The script has to be interesting if a real-life couple is coming together," added the former Miss World.
