No more speculations now. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has finally
announced that she would act in director Madhur Bhandarkar"s film
Heroine. She put months of speculation to an end by
announcing it at the Cannes Film Festival.
“Heroine is a movie that the team was very thrilled about, and
yes I have just agreed to come on board. Madhur has been speaking
to me for many years about collaborating for a film and I am glad
we are finally working together. This venture certainly looks like
a strong creative synergy and I look forward to this new journey in
the movie," Aishwarya told PTI.
Bhandarkar has a reason for announcing his film at Cannes and
not in India. “The life of a movie star has universal appeal, and
what better spot than the French Riviera for the grand splash,
where 4500 journalists descend year after year to watch films from
all corners of the earth," he reasoned.
Heroine will be produced by UTV Motion Pictures and its
photography is expected to begin next month.
