The Bachchan Bahu Aishwarya Rai Bachchan must be delighted at the Compliments and Best wishes that have been showered by thousands of fans across the globe after the news of her pregnancy got out. The pretty actress however was a disappointed at Film maker Madhur Bhandarkar’s comments that tried to put her in the dock about her non disclosure of being pregnant. Madhur Bhandarkar made his displeasure clear by stating that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had kept him in the dark about being pregnant before signing for his film ‘Heroine’.
The first schedule of the film ‘Heroine’ had already been shot and Madhur Bhandarkar was shocked to hear about Aishwarya Rai’s pregnancy which meant that the actress could not shoot certain sequences needed by Madhur Bhandarkar due to her pregnancy.
Amitabh Bachchan in an interview defended his bahu Aishwarya Rai Bachchan by stating 'Everybody knew that Aishwarya was married when she signed the film. So you mean to say that actors can't get married or have children? I don't think this can be a part of any contract that you cannot get married or have children if you working in a project,'
Though miffed with Madhur Bhandarkar comments in the media the Bachchan’s are not planning to take any further course of action and have chosen to keep quiet after clarifying their position.
‘Heroine’ is being produced by ‘UTV Movies’ and Bachchan said that the reports stating that the Production House had suffered losses to the tune of 18 crore due to Aishwarya’s withdrawal were completely false.
The superstar is also peeved at ‘UTV Movies’ not releasing ‘Shoebite’ , the movie that the actor did with them a long time ago.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has maintained a stoic silence over this issue but sources confirmed that she has not been paid any money for ‘Heroine’Read also
