The shooting of Heroine was started on June 8, 2011 with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan playing the female lead. The actress was asked to gain weight for the role, however her flabby appearances in public rose speculation that the Bachchan bahu might be pregnant. Though Aishwarya rubbished all the news, it was on Tuesday evening when the doctor confirmed about her pregnancy superstar Amitabh Bachchan confirmed the news on his micro-blogging page.
Meanwhile, questions on Heroine's promotional activities and Box Office success have started erupting in the media. But Madhur and his team are not worried about the failure. They view that Aishwarya's fan following was not affected when she got married to Abhishek Bachchan. Her popularity and loyal fan following will also not be affected by her motherhood.
Heroine is tentatively slated for a November release this year and the promotional activities will be planned according to Aishwarya's suitability. Well, that's called professionalism.
