Filmmaker Aditya Chopra is apparently trying to get the two actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to reunite on the silver screen after eight years, says a media report.

It could be a casting coup of sorts if Aditya Chopra has his way. Aditya is apparently trying to convince both to reunite for a movie. The last time they paired up on the silver screen was eight years ago for Devdas.Aditya apparently has had telephonic conversations with both Shah Rukh and Aishwarya trying to coax them to do a project under his banner.

Post 2002, Shah Rukh and Aishwarya never starred together in a film after it was widely gossiped that they had a fall-out.

A high profile film-maker told uson condition of anonymity, "Aditya has for long been toying with a script that is tailor-made for Shah Rukh and Aishwarya. But the most important thing was to convince the two of them to work together again. The buzz is that Aditya has spoken to Shah Rukh and Ash separately, expressing his desire to bring them together and we hear they have been patient listeners. That showsthat they both are keen to work together again. We hear Adi has an off-beat romantic script in mind."

The source adds, "Except for Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, there is no hit jodi in Bollywood anymore. When Shah Rukh and Aishwarya were doing films together, they were the undisputed number one pair having done quite a few films. If Aditya manages to get them together it will not only be a huge USP for his movie but also a great boost for the industry. But things are being kept under wraps until both of them give the nod."

However, a person from Yash Raj Films said they were not aware of any such development.
