Its official, Aishwarya signs Bhandarkar's 'Heroine'

Madhur Bhandarkar’s hunt for his leading lady for his highly anticipated project, ‘Heroine’ finally been over. She is none other than former beauty queen and actress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The announcement will be made at Cannes this year.

“Yes, it’s on. But we will talk about it at Cannes,” says Aishwarya. Bhandarkar confirms the report saying, “I am really happy that finally everything is set, I have structured the script keeping Ash in mind. It is one film that every actor would to do, and I am glad Ash agreed to do it. And we will start shooting next month”, says the 42 year old filmmaker.

It was earlier said that Kareena Kapoor was approached for the movie but due to some unknown reasons she turned down the offer. Madhur said about casting Bebo, “I feel it is jinxed for me to think Kareena doing any films as due to some or the other reason, it never materializes. She was my first choice for ‘Page 3’ and ‘Fashion’ but even that never happened".  

Keeping the main plot intact, Madhur has changed some objectionable scenes for Aishwarya.
