Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is shooting for her upcoming film Sarabjit in Punjab. Recently, Aishwarya visited the golden temple with daughter Aaradhya Bachchan and mother Vrinda Rai.
The biopic is based on the true story of Indian convict Sarabjit Singh, who was beaten to death in a Pakistani jail. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is playing Sarabjit's sister Dalbir Kaur, while Randeep Hooda will be seen in the titular role.
The diva is very happy with the response she got when the first look of the movie came out. She told a daily, '"We have started filming and would like to first say that, the picture is already out and I am very thankful for the response.''
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan further added, ''It has been very encouraging, even for the choice of subject. Work has begun and it is (the film) intense.''
Not many people know that, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan took only fifteen minutes to say 'Yes' to Sarabjit. Mary Kom director Omung Kumar revealed in an interview to IE that convincing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to do his biopic on Sarabjit Singh was not difficult, and she agreed in just 15 minutes.
Talking about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, he said, "We directly approached Aishwarya as I know her since a long time. After meeting her, she agreed to do the film in just 15 minutes as the role was demanding and she could see herself in the role. So she instantly said yes."
The movie is expected to hit the screens on May 19th.
