B-Town’s been abuzz with rumours of actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan planning her return to Bollywood, ever since reports of her meeting a few top filmmakers started doing the rounds recently.
Though there’s been no word from the actor herself, about her plans of return, the industry is speculating about when it’s most likely to happen. However, apparently Aishwarya is in no rush to return to the big screen anytime soon. Insiders reveal that she is enjoying being a hands-on mum for now and doesn’t want to get back to films at least till this year end, as she can’t bear leaving her daughter behind for the extensively long hours required for shoots. Even if she does read and sign on a film, she is unlikely to start shooting for it right away, they opine.
“There’s no denying that there are several offers and filmmakers have been trying to get her to at least read their scripts, but of what we know, she’s not looking at starting any film till her daughter doesn’t turn one at least. There are several filmmakers who’ve also conveyed to her that they don’t mind the wait too,” says a source.
“She’s a completely hands-on mum and her only focus at the moment is her daughter. It’s unlikely that she’ll take up films right away, though she may continue with her endorsements as they require fewer hours of shooting. Being a thorough professional, she wouldn’t commit till she’s not ready,” adds another source. In fact, ever since the birth of her daughter on November 16, last year, the actor has only been seen attending two social events so far.
Though her appearances have triggered off buzz that the actor is taking it easy as far as getting back into shape is concerned, insiders reveal that apparently it’s not something that’s on her agenda anyway for now. “She still has the new mommy glow and as for the weight, well, she can get back to shape whenever she wants, what’s the hurry?” said an insider.
Apparently, the actor has got back to her exercise regime, but is at present only doing light work-outs. She’s not getting into intensive workouts yet. According to the source, “Her only reason to get back to exercising is to stay fit. She can easily get back to her pre-pregnancy shape, whenever she wants too, so it’s not something that anyone’s worried about. At present, her world revolves around her daughter and she’s enjoying the break from her otherwise hectic pace as an actor for now.”
