Abhishek-Ash in Abhimaan 2

Girish Rao | October 03, 2008 14:47 IST

After Hrishikesh Mukherjee made the beautiful Amitabh-Jaya Bachchan starrer Abhimaan, ace cinematographer Rajiv Menon (Bombay and Guru) hopes to cast Abhishek Bachchan [Images] and Aishwarya Rai [Images] Bachchan in a film loosely based on the 1973 hit.

"Yes, Rajiv Menon, who is very close to me and Aishwarya, has narrated a script that is inspired by Abhimaan," Abhishek confirms. "It's not an exact remake. We are now planning to finalise the details."

Abhimaan, which dealt with a husband's increasing jealously when his singer wife's success overshadows his own singing career, is also remembered for the melodious soundtrack composed by S D Burman.

Menon had earlier directed Ash in the Tamil love saga Kandukondein Kandukondein (2000), which also starred Mammothy and Tabu [Images]. The film won a lot of rave reviews.

Besides, Menon recently worked with both Abhishek and Ash in Mani Ratnam's hit Guru.

Let's wait and see if the younger Bachchans can repeat the magic the senior Bachchans created in Abhimaan.
