Director Madhur Bhandarkar has finally zeroed on actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, for his upcoming project, Heroine. A formal announcement of the film is expected to be made at the Cannes Film Festival. Heroine will be a joint production of Bhandarkar and UTV Motion Pictures.
The film will be a real life experience piece, which will describe the hard-hitting life of a heroine. "Aishwarya has agreed to be part of the project. Madhur and Aishwarya both will make the final announcement of this project at the Cannes Film Festival on May 13," a source informs PTI.
Heroine has made to the headline a lot of times for its flipping cast. It was also reported that Kareena Kapoor was approached for the role, but after several meetings and discussions the actress turned down the offer, without giving any specific reason.
"The main story of Heroine by and large remains the same, though little changes have been made in the script," the source added.
