Mumbai: After making her presence felt in Hollywood studios with films like ‘Bride and Prejudice’, ‘Mistress of Spice’, ‘Provoked’, ‘The Last Legion’ and ‘Pink Panther 2’, ex-Miss World and Bollywood’s reigning queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is all set to clinch a movie deal with Hollywood actor Russell Crowe.

According to the latest news, Aishwarya, who is gracing the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, will soon be seen in another Hollywood project.

Talking to a news daily, a source said, “Russell was with his wife Danielle Spencer and they bonded well with Ash. Word is that they also discussed the possibility of doing a film together and both parties were very keen. It would be a great star cast to have for any movie as it would see the best of both industries coming together.”

It is hugely believed that Hollywood A-list stars like Eva Longoria-Parker and Elizabeth Banks have been inspired by B-town’s light-eyed beauty Aishwarya.

“Last year, Aishwarya had walked hand-in-hand with Abhishek Bachchan in Cannes much to the delight of shutterbugs. This year, Eva and Elizabeth got their husbands — NBA star Tony Parker and sportswriter and producer Max Handelman, respectively — to walk alongside them at the red carpet in Cannes,” added the source.

It seems another international project is coming Aishwarya’s way!
