Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek were reportedly approached for the remake of Amitabh Bachchan and wife Jaya's iconic film Abhimaan, which released 44 years ago. However, the star couple has refused to be a part of the project. Deccan Chronicle reports that Abhishek doesn't want his parents' iconic film to be remade. "Abhishek and Aishwarya are still bombarded with a plethora of scripts. However, they are quite wary of the kind of films they would like to do together. Abhishek especially was of the opinion that Abhimaan is the kind of cult classic that should remain untouched," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.

Abhimaan released just before Big B and Jaya Bachchan got married in 1973. For the Hrishikesh Mukherjee-directed film, Jaya Bachchan won Filmfare Award for Best Actress. Last week, Big B wrote on his blog that even after 44 years, he still doesn't know who owns Abhimaan's rights. "Amiya - the production name was our production. Ami from Amitabh and Ya from Jaya and our respective secretaries were looking after the nitty gritties while we worked. But as is with most such productions, things went out of hand and we ended up with nothing. The rights all still belong to 'don't know who,' perhaps one of the secretaries," the 74-year-old actor wrote.
 

Meanwhile, Aishwarya and Abhishek, who have earlier co-starred in films like Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke, Kuch Naa Kaho, Dhoom 2, have also been reportedly approached for a film by Anurag Kashyap. The couple married in April 2007 and have a five-year-old daughter Aaradhya. They last worked together in Mani Ratnam's Raavan, which released in 2010.
