Director Sanjay Gupta said that her character in Jazbaa needed a lot of action and Aishwarya was more than skillful of handling the stunts. To him, the film had been just one another new movie as for the circumstance that he was going to work with Shabana Azmiji and Aishwarya Rai for the very first time. Something very special is certain to happen, he added.

Aishwarya, Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher, Siddhanth Kapoor, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Atul Kulkarni along with director Sanjay Gupta were all present at the session. The movie is said to be ‘inspired’ from a Korean film called Seven Days.
Anupam mentioned that with Jazbaa he was teaming up with Sanjay Gupta after 18 years and also with Aishwarya. It would be the first time he would be working with talented actor Irrfan. The actor added that he was looking forward to do this film as it had an amazing script.
Reports from the unit say that Aishwarya would be shooting from Jan 15 to the middle of April for Jazbaa in one long stretch. At this time she would be completing her entire work for the film.
