The real life couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai will play reel-life couple in the film Ladies and Gentlemen which will be produced and directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. The casting has been confirmed and the film will start shooting from July this year. It will be shot in locations in Mumbai, Rome, New York and Malaysia.
Rajkumar Santoshi has encountered several problems in mounting his ambitious project Power which had Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor and Amisha Patel as lead stars. After Ajay and Sanjay walked out of the project, it was put on hold.
Santoshi then wanted to make a comedy film on the lines of Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani. But kept it also on hold after Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai confirmed their consent and dates for Ladies and Gentlemen.
