Bhandarkar blames Ash for hiding pregnancy truth


Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar is in depressed state of mind. He does not know how to react as his most ambitious project ‘Heroine’ shelved. He had worked on the script of ‘Heroine’ for one and a half years and was taken aback to know that the main protagonist of the movie Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is five months pregnant. He was happy for Ash but at the same time depressed thinking about the faith of his film. He panic why Ash did not inform him earlier.

He blames Aishwarya for hiding the pregnancy news. Madhur said that if he had known it before he could not have announced the movie at Cannes and would not have shot the first look of ‘Heroine’. It was a huge film and everything was almost settled and the film was to go on floors on June 7. Knowing the news at this stage is a huge loss for the entire unit.

The main protagonist need to do things which a pregnant woman could not afford to do so and hence Madhur could not drag a pregnant woman to do things which may bring trouble to her new born. She needs to smoke, run, drenched on waterfalls, go physical with the male leads. The filmmaker feels that if some unpleasant things happen during the shoot then he would never able to forgive himself.

Madhur has decided to put ‘Heroine’ on hold at the moment.
