After a gap of nearly three years, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to woo the audience with his next film, Guzaarish, starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles.

As the film eyes for a November release, rumours have started doing their rounds, claiming that the plot is inspired by Christopher Nolan's The Prestige.

The film, reportedly, is a desi version of the 2006 hit flick, starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale.

The story of The Prestige revolves around the rivalry between two magicians and its screenplay was adapted from Christopher Priest's novel of the same name.

The buzz is that Hrithik plays a magician in Guzaarish.

But, according to sources attached to Bhansali's project, Hrithik is shown as a paraplegic patient, Ehan.

Aishwarya, meanwhile, plays the role of a married nurse. The story revolves around the intimate bond they come share. The film also stars newcomers Monikangana Dutta and Aditya Roy Kapoor in major roles.
