New Delhi: Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai's comeback film 'Jazbaa' is making headlines much before it's release.

The film, which will see the former beauty queen romance the very talented Irrfan Khan for the first time is reportedly a copy of a famous South Korean film. According to reports, director Sanjay Gupta in a recent interview revealed the storyline of the film in which Aish plays a lawyer while Irrfan will be seen essaying the role of a suspended police officer.

The plot revealed by the filmmaker reportedly bears similarities with a South Korean film titled 'Seven Days'.

This is not the first time that Sanjay Gupta is rehashing a foreign film. Almost all his previous films including 'Kaante', 'Plan', 'Musaafir' and 'Zindaa' were remakes of foreign films.

Besides Irrfan and Aishwarya, the film also stars Bollywood hunk John Abraham in a prominent role. It is expected to go on floors in January next year.
