One question is troubling the maker’s of Heroine is ‘Why didn’t Ashwariya Rai Bachchan inform them in advance about her pregnancy before giving her nod of approval to the film?’
"Ash is four months pregnant and it was during April when Madhur Bhandarkar had first approached her formally for the film. Only when she said ‘yes’ was Heroine announced in the month of May. Since Ash already knew about her pregnancy then, it is strange that she still went ahead with the film", says a source.
This is all the more surprising since Ash shares a good professional relationship with UTV especially after working with the corporate house in Guzaarish and Jodhaa Akbar. Even with Madhur she has shared a cordial relationship over the years and together they were looking forward to working with each other for years now. However, the pregnancy announcement has now thrown the entire plan for Heroine haywire.
"While attempts have been made to camouflage this sudden development by stating that the film is 50% complete, this is far from being true", continues the source, "It is not even 10% complete. At least 65-70 days are required for the shooting and then further time is required to be spent on the post production. With just 7 days of shooting so far, Heroine has merely gone on floors."
Madhur nor UTV were available for comment.
