In an interview to Mid Day, Aishwarya confirmed the news and said while the script had come to them nearly a year and a half ago, they couldn’t take a call as Abhishek was keen on a break.

Once the chatter about the film began again, she asked him to decide and he said yes. “AB and I agreed to do Gulab Jamun. I told AB that he needs to decide what he wants to do after Manmarziyan.”

Aishwarya also talked about the film and said it was a beautiful script and both fitted the bill perfectly. “The script had to be interesting if a real-life couple is coming together.”
