Mumbai: With Aishwarya Rai being pregnant, news about Madhur Bhandarkar’s ambitious project ‘Heroine’ being stalled is doing the rounds. The project which was announced amidst the international media at the Cannes Film Festival this year was supposed to star Aishwarya Rai and Arjun Rampal in the lead roles. But with Ash being pregnant, filmmakers are thinking of other heroines who can fill in her shoes.
The latest buzz is that, Priyanka Chopra has shown eagerness to take up the role that was to be done by Aishwarya. Whether Aishwarya is actually out of the project is not known yet but Priyanka has already showed her willingness to do the role if the director wishes to replace Ash.
Speaking to a daily, a source revealed, “Priyanka thinks it`s a role of a lifetime. She has worked with Madhur in ‘Fashion’ and they share a great equation.
When she got the news, PC was one of the first to send him a SMS implying her willingness to work in the film. She was even cool with smoking, drinking and the intimate scenes. She has advised him against scrapping the film.”
Looks like Aishwarya’s decision to start a family will benefit Priyanka as well!
