Mumbai: After Kareena replaced Aishwarya in Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s revived ambitious project ‘Bajirao Mastani’, it is reported that Ash bagged a role good enough to make Bebo go green with envy.

Buzz has it that, Ash has been offered a role opposite Kareena’s beau Saif in Vishal Bhardwaj’s next. Sources confirm that filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj approached the green-eyes beauty with an idea to cast her as the female lead for his upcoming film. It is also heard that Vishal has been chasing Ash for 14 years now, but the two never worked together owing to date constraints or because the project was not of Ash’s interest.

However, looking at Vishal line of work it is widely speculated that if Ash agrees to the film, it will be sheer joy to watch an interesting new pair on screen.

Besides approaching her to be the leading lady love for Saif in his next, the acclaimed filmmaker plans to cast her in another project the concept of which is a take on William Shakespeare`s cult tragedy, Hamlet, for which he plans to cast Hrithik Roshan.

Vishal was spotted entering Janak (Bachchans, usually, hold business meetings at this Juhu bungalow) with a script in hand. This has set the ball in motion. Said a source, "Vishal was indeed there to meet with Ash. It went on for an hour at least where they discussed and dissected the offers that he had for her. As of now things are very hush hush."
