Aishwarya Rai BachchanAs soon as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s pregnancy was announced, her film Heroine stood on shaky grounds. There are many reports doing the rounds that director Madhur Bhandarkar seemed upset about the fate of his film, of him adding two new item numbers to Ash’s discomfort, or his inability to finish the film by July, which was the original deadline.
But producers UTV have released a statement to dispel all rumours: ‘At this point nothing is more important than Aishwarya’s well being and good health. In that context, we have all mutually agreed that the best step would be to avoid shooting further, rather than proceeding with an incredibly demanding schedule over the coming months. Even as we will truly miss this opportunity to work with Aishwarya, the entire unit wishes her the very best for the exciting time ahead, as she and Abhishek move into this special new phase in their lives.
