The digital platforms have been attracting not only the audience but also the actors as well who feel that the content on the web is much progressive than the movies. They also feel that the digital platforms are an easy way to reach the mass audience. There are a lot of actors who have decided to debut on digital platforms and many more have their debuts lined up. A few months ago, we informed you about Miss Universe 1994 Sushmita Sen’s digital debut and today we’ve some more exciting news for the pageant fanatics who wish to see their loved beauty queens more often on-screen.

If the rumors are to be believed, Aishwarya Rai will start working for her digital debut with a dear friend and co-star Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh came across a script that he has recommended to Aishwarya Rai due to his closeness with the family. Aishwarya’s husband Abhishek who will make his digital debut with ‘Breathe 2’ has convinced the beauty queen to make her digital debut once the situation in the world calms down. As many might be aware recently, Shah Rukh has produced a successful movie starring Amitabh Bachchan. He is also currently bankrolling one featuring Abhishek Bachchan. It doesn’t, therefore, come to a surprise that SRK has something for Aishwarya Rai, too in his lot. Aishwarya will start working for the project after the Covid-19 lockdown is lifted.
