Mumbai: Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar who has signed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for his upcoming and hyped film ‘Heroine’ is having a tough time finalizing an actor to work opposite the green-eyed beauty queen.
He is looking for an actor to play her lover in the film. But according to the script the onscreen lover of Ash has to be a younger to her in age.
Apart from handsome hunk Arjun Rampal, who has been signed to play the male lead character. But there is another male character in the film who has to be a younger actor Ash will fall in love with and have a serious relationship with in the film.
Apparently the three names on Madhur’s list at the moment are Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan and Prateik.
A source said to a daily, "Ash has a very interesting track with a young actor who falls in love with her. He basically uses her to climb the social ladder and make it big in the industry. There are also a few romantic scenes between the actor and Ash. It`s a role that`s being battled for between the three actors."
There was initially a tough competition between Imran and Ranbir who were the obvious first choices. But the idea to consider Prateik has further made the choice a harder decision adding more confusion to Madhur’s mind. None of the new gen actors have worked with Ash so it will be quiet an interesting angle to the film seeing her romance one of them. But now the decision depends on Madhur to make.
The source also added, "The decision is yet to be made but it will be one of these three guys. Madhur is still in the process of casting and will be making his decision in the coming weeks."
