Last updated on: January 14, 2015 14:10 IST

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gets ready for her movie comeback.

A script-reading session would not really make any news but Sanjay Gupta’s next film Jazbaa is an exception. The session was Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's first day on film sets, after a five-year hiatus.

The cast and crew of the film gathered at Novotel Hotel, Juhu, in the western suburb of Mumbai on January 13, to start working on the film.
