Beauty queen-turned-actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is returning to the big screen after almost five years but she claims that she didn’t feel that she was absent from the industry.

“I haven’t felt being absent, though going by the time and the number of releases that we do have, of course, I wasn’t making movies. But a lot of ladies here who’ve completely experienced what I’m wonderfully feeling right now will agree that we have no concept of time. We don’t realize how time flies by,” she said to queries on her absence at the trailer launch of the much-anticipated “Jazbaa” directed by Sanjay Gupta.

Her last film was as a caretaker to Hrithik Roshan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Guzaarish”. She was initially going to star in Madhur Bhandarkar’s “Heroine” but backed out due to her pregnancy and the role went to Kareena Kapoor. Duties as a mother to three-year-old Aaradhya kept her busy all these years.

“Being a working mother, I really did not delve into this absence factor. And probably that’s why I haven’t necessarily focused on the term ‘comeback’. There’s no going away from it and running away from it. And it will forever be the comeback film. So I’m not denying it but when I turn around and say that I haven’t felt it, that’s just the way it is,” said Aishwarya.

“Jazbaa” sees Aishwarya in the role of a lawyer stuck in a conspiracy. Irrfan Khan plays a cop and it also stars Jackie Shroff, Shabana Azmi and Chandan Roy Sanyal among others.
