Actor-couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who were last seen together in Mani Ratnam's Raavan in 2010, may be all set to reunite onscreen.
According to reports, actor-musician Himesh Reshammiya has, rather discreetly, managed to strike a deal for the remake rights of Shekhar Kapoor’s 1983 classic Masoom which starred Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi as a couple grappling with the reality of a lovechild.
The heartwarming story of the familial struggle had instantly struck a chord with movie-goers across the country, establishing Shekhar Kapoor as a filmmaker who knew his craft.
And Reshammiya has zeroed in on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan to play the lead roles.
According to a reliable source, the star couple has agreed in principle to be in the film.
“The details are being worked out at present,” says the source.
