Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Jazbaa’ is one of the most-awaited films of the year, especially owing to lead actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s presence in the action-packed drama. Also starring Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi and Jackie Shroff, ‘Jazbaa’ hits screens this Friday, (October 10).
Fans are eagerly waiting for the return of their favourite actress to the silver screen. Here are a few reasons why ‘Jazbaa’ could be on your watch list this weekend.
1) Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: It has been five years since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has had a release. Last seen in ‘Guzaarish’, the former beauty queen has been on a break, in order to spend time with her daughter Aaradhya. Not only does ‘Jazbaa’ mark Aishwarya’s comeback to cinema, but also depicts her complete physical transformation from her post-pregnancy weight, for which the actress received immense criticism. Aishwarya’s intense role of an advocate who has to find her
kidnapped daughter will see the actress doing some high-octane stunts and we’re definitely excited.
2) Irrfan Khan: Everything this actor touches, turns to gold or so it seems. He has displayed exceptional talent in his onscreen appearances and expectations from Irrfan Khan are sky-high. The actor plays the role of a suspended cop in the film. It would be interesting to see Irrfan and Aishwarya’s equation onscreen. His last film Talvar, where he played the role of a cop, was also a hit.
3. Prominent International presence: The first look of ‘Jazbaa’ was unveiled at the 68th Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. With this kind of international recognition, one can only expect it to be a worthwhile watch.
4) Sanjay Gupta: The director’s last outing was ‘Shootout at Wadala’ which was well received and had a successful running at the box office. The trailer of ‘Jazbaa’ gave us a glimpse of what seems to be a fast-paced exciting thriller that is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.
5. The Story: ‘Jazbaa’ is a court room drama where Aishwarya plays the role of a criminal advocate whose daughter is kidnapped. It is her performance in court that will save her daughter but at what cost? That remains to be seen!
