Prior to winning the Miss World title in 1994, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had first shot to fame as a model with a Pepsi ad in which she was cast opposite Aamir Khan.�� The ad-director, Prahlad Kakkar, still considers Rai Bachchan his favourite and looks forward to casting her in his first film.
���I cannot think of anybody in my movie except Aishwarya.�� She has been my favourite.�� I launched her in the Pepsi ad and now it�۪s Aishwarya�۪s turn to launch me in Bollywood,� Kakkar said to Absolute India.
News of Rai Bachchan being cast in Kakkar�۪s film had started circulating last year and the film was being touted as the actress�۪ comeback vehicle.�� However, Rai Bachchan will now be making her comeback with Sanjay Gupta�۪s ��Jazbaa�۪, as Kakkar�۪s film has faced delay.
��Jazbaa�۪, for which the actress has already started shooting, also stars Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher, John Abraham and Siddhanth Kapoor.
