'Jazbaa' is one of the most anticipated films of the year, which will mark the return of actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from her sabbatical after a gap of five years.

Aishwarya and actor Irrfan Khan look serious and feisty in the new poster of their upcoming action-drama.

A crime scene features as the backdrop of the poster, where Aishwarya and Irrfan, 48, are shown on the run, with a big clock behind them.

The film is directed by Sanjay Gupta.

The director shared the new poster and captioned it, "Here is the poster of our labor of love & passion #JAZBAA. Now waiting for your response."

Sanjay also pointed out that the lead actress' debut Bollywood film 'Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya' also released on the same day in 1997.

"ARB's (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's) debut film released today. And the #JAZBAA poster releases today. How awesome is this coincidence? Totally unexpected!" He was all praise for his lead actors.

"At the cost of being immodest, I can easily say that both @irrfan_k and ARB on our #JAZBAA poster are a treat for sore eyes."

Filmmaker and Aishwarya's close friend Karan Johar also shared the poster. "Aishwarya is back!!! #Jazbaa," he tweeted.

The first look of 'Jazbaa' which was released almost three months back featured disheveled Bachchan squatting on the ground and covered with grime against a background of city high-rises.

She appears to have a lost and disillusioned expression on her face as she stares at something in despair.

The 41-year-old actress was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's drama 'Guzaarish' (2010).

'Jazbaa', also starring Shabana Azmi, Jackie Shroff, Atul Kulkarni, Abhimanyu Singh and Chandan Roy Sanyal, will hit theatres on October 8 in the UAE.
