Aishwarya and Irrfan will be sharing a romantic equation in the film. Talking about the same, Irrfan said, "When you are part of a story as an actor you react to the other person according to the demand of the character. She (Aishwarya) has a beauty that is mesmerising. She has an individuality and you admire that." Seen here, Irrfan lends Aishwarya a helping hand as she struts in her high heels.

Irrfan had words of praise for Aishwarya who plays an advocate in 'Jazbaa'. "I admire how she (Aishwarya) was doing two jobs together it was beautiful to see that. It was a wonderful experience to see a mother giving shots, being into her character and then taking care of the baby.”

Talking about her character, Aishwarya said, "There was no apprehension of playing a mother. I would have chosen this film five years ago too but the difference is today I am a mother. So, I am playing Anuradha Verma in a given situation, I do know what a mother is experiencing. I have brought the truth towards acting through this film.”

On her return to films after five years, Aishwarya said, "I am a very committed mother, and professional. So only when I knew that I can balance both, I took up ‘Jazbaa."

Aishwarya spoke abotu the balance between motherhood and professionalism, "Every working woman, every mother has her own challenge to multitask. It brings a certain joy which is difficult to put to words but if you think I am looking content, it means I have found my balance.”
