Dhun with AR Rahman

Post marriage, it almost seems like Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan have only each other to work with. Not that anybody is complaining. According to the buzz, after being offered Mani Ratnam's Lajjo, the husband-wife duo will star in Chennai-based director Rajiv Menon's next flick. Titled Dhun, it is a music-based love story with none other than A R Rahman roped in as music director.

Obviously, the lovebirds are more than pleased to do another film together. After all, they can barely stand separation, even if it's for work. On her first wedding anniversary, Aishwarya flew all the way to Miami, to spend some time with her hubby who was shooting for Dostana with John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra. Now, Abhi-Ash will get to spend more time together thanks to Lajjo and Dhun. However, before it gets all hunky dory, they will have to bear some more months of separation.

Abhishek's Dostana and Aishwarya's Robot opposite Rajnikant are yet to be completed. Hence, the shooting of Dhun will begin only sometime in February 2009. Let's hope we get to witness the beautiful couple's awesome chemistry once again.
