Reports says that the Abhishek Bachchan convincing to his wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to sign JAZBA but in an interview he said that the news is rubbished. "That is absolute rubbish. It is undermining Aishwarya as an actor. I don't think she needs anybody to lobby for her or insist her to do anything. She is who she is. We forget that she is the most successful actress we have," clarified Abhishek when asked whether he insisted Aishwarya to accept Sanjay Gupta's JAZBA. He also told that "I didn't have to persuade Aishwarya to do a movie. The script and Sanjay (Gupta) persuaded her to do the film."
