Ever since the overjoyed father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan revealed about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's pregnancy, numerous speculations regarding Aishwarya's forthcoming film HEROINE, directed by Madhur Bhandarkar and produced by UTV have been doing rounds.
However, putting all the speculations to the rest the officials from UTV have given their clarification on the status of HEROINE and have mutually agreed to halt the shooting.
An official release from UTV read, "We would like to put an end to the speculative and factually incorrect stories that are doing the rounds on HEROINE, and to clarify the position on the film once and for all. At this point nothing is more important than Aishwarya's well being and good health. In that context, we have all mutually agreed that the best step would be to avoid shooting further, rather than proceeding with an incredibly demanding schedule over the coming months."
Further UTV gave their best wishes to the expecting couple - Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan.
"Even as we will truly miss this opportunity to work with Aishwarya, the entire unit wishes her the very best for the exciting time ahead, as she and Abhishek move into this special new phase in their lives," the statement further read.
