Ash to do her own stunts in Jazbaa

Now that little Aaradhya has started going to play school, her star mom Aishwarya Rai makes her grand comeback with director Sanjay Gupta's Jazbaa, her first full-fledged action film.

For a while it seemed Aishwarya's first director Mani Ratnam would be helming her comeback film. But that project has been put on hold. Talk of Aishwarya being in a film directed by adman Prahlad Kakkad also proved to be just talk.
To be produced by Gupta, Jazbaa will mark her return to the silver screen after her daughter's birth in Nov 2011. The film will start rolling early next year.  Confirming these developments Gupta said: ‘We start Jazbaa in January 2015. We'll be showcasing Jazbaa at the Cannes film festival in 2015.’
The filmmaker clarified that it's not a women-centric drama.’
‘Just because Aishwarya is in Jazbaa we should not label the film female-centric. To me, she's the hero of the film,’ he said.

Aishwarya had done some action scenes in Dhoom 2, but she didn't have the kind of stunts that Hrithik Roshan had.
In Gupta's film, she will do all the stunts without the help of a body-double. She has already started training for the role.
 ‘There is no gender-specificity in what she does in the narrative. I have cast her in a role like any of the other  heroes in my films.
