Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is spending busy time at the shooting spot of two movies- Raavan and Robot. Besides these two movies, Aishwarya is also shooting for her next English movie The Pink Panther 2 where she is acting opposite Steve Martin. The Pink Panther 2 will most probably get released on 6 February 2009. Moreover, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will also act opposite heart-throb Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan in the next directorial venture of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. This will be third movie for Aishwarya-Hrithik pair. Earlier, two movies: Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar, starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan, got released and both the movies fared well in the box office. Directed by Sanjay Gadhvi, Dhoom 2 was released in three languages on 24 November 2006. In fact, Dhoom 2 was the biggest hit of Bollywood in 2006. Next movie of this pair, Jodhaa Akbar, was released on 19 February 2008. Besides Hindi, this movie got released in Urdu too, though it was not as successful as Dhoom 2. At present, Aishwarya-Hrithik pair is considered to be one of the most popular on-screen pairs in Bollywood. In fact, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan pair got popularity after the release of Dhoom 2.
As far as I know, Bachchan family asked Aishwarya not to continue acting after she married Abhishek Bachchan. However, it is not something prestigious for an actor. I think, Aishwarya Rai expressed the true identity of an actor by deciding to act opposite Hrithik Roshan.
