Meanwhile there seems to be some sudden development of sorts with Aishwarya Bachchan's name cropping up for his next outing Heroine (to be jointly produced by Bhandarkar Entertainment and UTV Motion Pictures). Since there appears to be some dilly-dallying on the part of Kareena Kapoor (who was approached for Heroine and stays on to be Bhandarkar's first choice), the director appears to have come up with a call of 'enough is enough'. For the uninitiated, since the film is said to be controversial in nature with quite a few real life incidents being dramatised for a cinematic experience, Kareena was said to be hesitant with some portions (including a few steamy scenes) of the film.

Madhur is obviously reacting to a media report that recently flashed a headline which indicated that Bhandarkar had sent feelers through his office to Aishwarya Bachchan to play the central protagonist in his exposing tale about the world of glamour, Bollywood and entertainment - Heroine.
Denies Sanjay Mehta, Business Head at Bhandarkar Entertainment, "Madhur hasn't approached Aishwarya Bachchan or any other actress. For that matter, in recent past he hasn't even brought up the film for a formal discussion with Kareena. He would be doing all the talking around Heroine and another project of his only next year after Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji is released."
Meanwhile, the first look of his romcom is up for release. Once Bhandarkar is back from his vacation this weekend, he is expected to go all out to present his lead stars Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi who were seen in an altogether different light earlier this year in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai.
"While that happens, wait for an official announcement to come in around Heroine and my next film", assures Bhandarkar, "Don't trust any assumptions or speculations till you get any news straight from me or my office."
Well, we will try to do that Madhur. Par kya karein, dil toh bachcha hai ji!
