The 41-year-old star had taken a sabbatical following the birth of her daughter Aaradhya. Her last release was in 2010 ('Guzaarish') after which she went on maternity leave. However, Aishwarya does not consider 'Jazbaa' as her comeback film.
"I feel I never went anywhere but it will be perceived as my comeback film. I had a chosen a Mani Ratnam film earlier but because of technical reasons he told me he is revisiting it. Now, 'Jazbaa' will be that first is a strong subject.. it is not a stereotypical film. It is a great story," Aishwarya said in a group interview here.
The film directed by Sanjay Gupta will see her playing a lawyer. It also stars Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher and Jackie Shroff among others.
"It is about a single mother, a lawyer.. her daughter who gets kidnapped. People perceive it as serious film and women oriented, it might go that way. But it is interesting to see how is he going to tell the story. I am happy, curious and excited to see Sanjay's 'Jazbaa'," she said.
The first look of 'Jazbaa' was unveiled on Tuesday. The film is scheduled to release in October this year.
