    "I would show the producer the door if he gets a clause like that," she said.

    "If you do not believe that I am a professional, don't sign me, and if you believe that I'm a professional, don't question my professional integrity and tell me about my personal life.

    "If anyone would tell me that this a time span when you cannot get pregnant, I wouldn't tolerate that," she added.

“Ash and I have always been there for each other”: Preity Zinta.

    As soon as the news of Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan’s pregnancy was announced, there were n number of names that popped up to replace her in her upcoming film.

    One such name was actress Preity Zinta, who’s fuming at reports of her replacing Ash, who reportedly is also her BFF.“I am very disturbed with these false reports. I really fail to understand why no one checks with me on its authenticity. (Filmmaker) Rajkumarji (Santoshi) is a close friend, so are the Bachchans,” she says.

    Zinta has always maintained that Ash and she have become good friends over the last couple of years. Talking about their friendship, she had earlier said, “Ash is someone I can call a friend. We have kept in touch and shared our ups and downs through the years. We have always been there for each other through our tough times. I know that I can call her up anytime.”

    Though Zinta is currently not in the country, she is happy with the news of Ash’s pregnancy. She has conveyed her wishes to the family personally too. “Aishwarya is a dear friend of mine. I wish her all the very best,” she says.

    Zinta plans to catch up with her BFF once she is back in town. Says a source close to the actor, “She is very happy for Aishwarya and Abhishek. They’re close friends and she has known them for years now. Once she is back, she may take them out for a celebratory dinner to catch up on some much needed quality time.”


Aishwarya seen for first time after pregnancy news

    Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seen along with her husband Abhishek Bachchan for the first time after her pregnancy news. The couple was seen at a special screening of X-MEN: FIRST CLASS at a suburban multiplex.

    The actress was spotted wearing a white top and a full length yellow shrug on a blue jeans. Her baby bump was not visible. It's believed that her baby is due in November, which makes her four months pregnant.

    Meanwhile, her upcoming film HEROINE which was announced at the Cannes Film Festival this year is kept on hold by UTV.


UTV movies final word on ‘Heroine’… Ash out PC in???

    Madhur Bhandarkar’s ambitious project Heroine looks like a never ending project. Aishwarya Rai’s pregnancy came as a shock to the director. But now the final word is out that since the movie would require Ash to dance, smoke and run, UTV Productions have decided that they cannot complete the project as Aishwarya, being in pregnancy stage, should not risk her health.

    UTV movies released a press release stating: “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. 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.”

    Since, Ash is no more a part of the film, rumours has it that Priyanka Chopra had shown keen interest in replacing Aish and even sms’ed Madhur to cast her!

    However, Priyanka Chopra dismissed all rumours and wrote on a social networking website: “read some stupid article about how i wanna do @mbhandarkar268 s (Madhur Bhandarkar) film HEROINE..i think madhur is an amazing director and it’ll be amazing to work together again but GUYS this one aint it!!! I wish him and Aishwarya lots of luck with the film.”

    So will the movie move forward??? And the suspense continues….

    He first expressed his desire for a daughter on his twitter page, and now he has reiterated it in an interview. Abhishek has candidly revealed that he and Ash plan on having two kids. This is not the first time he has done that.

    Abhishek also says that it was Aishwarya Rai’s idea to let pa Amitabh Bachchan break the news of her pregnancy to the world..


The mom-to-be breaks her silence…

    Aishwarya Rai, the lady of the moment, finally breaks her silence.

    Since Aishwarya Rai doesn’t have any official Twitter page, she spoke to her fans through hubby Abhishek Bachchan’s Twitter handle.

    “Hey, my dearest extended family world over. THANK YOU so sooooo much 4 ALL ur LOVE, PRAYERS,BEST WISHES and BLESSINGS for us and “ours”….” Aishwarya Rai wrote.

    She added: “At this most PRECIOUS time in our lives. deeply moved…truly cherish all your wishes. god bless and love. thank you thank you and THANK YOU.”

    Aishwarya Rai was shooting for director Madhur Bhandarkar’s project Heroine when the news of her pregnancy came out. Her baby is expected in November this year.


Preity Zinta taking over Aishwarya Rai role?

    Preity Zinta is said to be replacing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Raj Kumar Santoshi's Ladies and Gentlemen.

    Rai Bachchan, whose pregnancy was announced earlier this week, was originally approached to work opposite husband Abhishek Bachchan in the comedy, The Times of India reports.

    "The fact that Aishwarya and Abhishek are going to be parents is far more important than anything to do with my film. The nature of the part that she was playing no longer suits her," said Santoshi.

    Zinta, who has been largely absent from the film industry since 2008, is now being linked to the role by the media.

    Santoshi, however, has denied that he is looking for a replacement for the former Miss World.

    "It's a project that I've written specially for her. The role cannot be played by anyone else. I will start it as soon as she is ready," he said.

    The Bachchans have appeared together in a number of films including Guru, Dhoom 2 and last year's Raavan.

    Rai Bachchan told Digital Spy last year that she wanted to "bring a different Aishwarya" to her audiences with each release.


Aishwarya Rai is off on her maternity leave…

    Aishwarya Rai’s pregnancy has put filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and UTV in a fix. The pregnancy news which is a very very good news to the film industry is not real gone down well with the makers of Ash’s forthcoming flick, Heroine.

    Ash’s role in the film is supposed to be that of a sexy superstar at the helm of her career. But this is not possible anymore. The makers have thus decided to put their venture on hold for a while.

    “Soon after Madhur heard about Aishwarya’s pregnancy, he called the producers and they decided to meet. So, director Madhur Bhandarkar and the producers Ronnie Srewvala and Siddharth Roy Kapoor met up at around 4pm on Wednesday.

    While the producer UTV has still not declared it officially, the buzz is that Madhur has decided to stall the shoots for the film,” revealed a source.

    Say’s the source, “No one, including herself knew about the pregnancy. She wuld never have started shooting for the film otherwise,”

    In fact Madhur was surprised to hear about the pregnancy. “He was hoping that Ash would be able to shoot the film, but that is unlikely now. What they have already shot are portions where she needed to look older. The next schedule required Ash to lose weight and also dance, which obviously is not possible now.

    The final call will however, be taken in another meeting scheduled in a couple of days,” added the source.

    The film that had gone on floors barely a fortnight back, was initially supposed to be completed within 60 days.


Aishwarya Rai is the modern dream girl…

    Bollywood’s original ‘Dream Girl’ and veteran actress Hema Malini, says she would like to pass this coveted title to former beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

    Hema said that if she had to select a ‘Dream Girl’ among today’s actresses then she would definitely go for Ash. “All actress are more than a dream girl today…they are very high and way above it. Each and every girl is very beautiful. They all have made a name for themselves specially Aishwarya. I will give the title to her,” Hema said.

    On a lighter note, the 62-year-old actress said, Aishwarya will have to pay me a crore for the precious label I have carried with dignity, all these years.

    Hema, who is looking forward to her upcoming film ‘Bbuddah… Hoga Tera Baap’, will be seen alongside megastar Amitabh Bachchan. The film releases on July 1.


Bollywood on Bachchan’s good news!!

    The film fraternity has been pleasantly surprised by the news of Aishwarya Rai’s pregnancy. Expectedly, the Bachchans have been flooded with good wishes and congratulations from friends, family, and fans.

    While Abhishek Bachchan has been maintaining a calculated silence over Aishwarya’s pregnancy, it was Amitabh Bachchan who excitedly broke the news to the world on his blog and Twitter page. Within minutes, good wishes poured in from everyone.

    Priyanka Chopra tweeted: “CONGRATS SIR @SrBachchan and @juniorbachchan ..awesome news!! lets make way for the legacy to go forward……”

    Neil Nitin Mukesh wrote: “Amazing! Congrats soon to be dadujaan! @SrBachchan and big bro @juniorbachchan & Ash bhahi ! love n happiness to u always ! Yipeeee !!:D :) ”

    Raveena Tandon tweeted: “Here’s to you Ash!!love live life queensize!Godbless always!!…She’s another scorpion whose moulded her life into exactly what she wanted!!A loving husband!a good family,successful career and now babies!”

    Ritesh Deshmukh was super excited upon hearing the news. He tweeted: “Congratttttuuulationnnnnnssssssssssss- superrrrr superrrrrr happppppyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy”

    Eesha Koppikar wrote: “@SrBachchan Congratulatons Sir.Dats really awesome news.God Bless.”

    Overall, Amitabh Bachchan was flooded with good wishes on his twitter page.

    “Overwhelmed with your wishes and blessings ..2843 new tweets in half an hour! Thank you all! Your affection and love is so touching,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

    Amitabh Bachchan also went on to quote a well-wisher who spoke about the relationship between dada and pota (grandfather and grandson).

    “Thank you all so much for all the blessings and greetings and the good wishes .. yeh sach hai ki pota Dada ke liye uska bachpan lekar aata hai .. wrote a well wisher .. ‘it is true that a grandchild brings along with it the child in the grandfather’ … and I could not agree more with this,” Amitabh wrote on his blog.


Aishwarya’s pregnancy will not disturb ‘Heroine’…

    Amitabh Bachchan announced to the world on Tuesday night, about a happy stork visiting the Bachchan household. But amidst all this joy, Aishwarya has no time to enjoy the celebration with her family, as she is currently jam packed with her dates for Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’.Though is was thought that director Madhur Bhandarkar may not be too thrilled by the news.

    Madhur, we hear, is equally happy for Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan.

    Moreover, he can take heart from the fact that Aishwarya won’t stop shooting for his film ‘Heroine’ which is already on the floors. Just last month, Aishwarya, Madhur and Ronie Screwvala had announced ‘Heroine’ at Cannes, following which the movie’s shoot began in Mumbai.

    Even Ash’s baby bump won’t disrupt the film’s continuity because Aishwarya’s role requires her to gain weight.

    It appears that everything came together just at the right time for Aishwarya.

    In ‘Heroine’ Aishwarya Rai plays a once successful film actress Mahi Khanna whose career is on the decline. The movie aims to reveal the underbelly of the movie industry and its well-kept secrets.

    We hear that Bhandarkar plans to wrap up the film’s shoot in 45 days after which Aishwarya Rai will have a lot of time to rest and go on a maternity leave from Bollywood.

    In fact, Ash’s pregnancy may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for ‘Heroine’ because a lot of fans might throng to theatres just to see the movie that Aishwarya shot during her pregnancy.


Congratulations to the Bachchan Pariwar!! Aishwarya is expecting…

    For the past couple of months, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was gaining weight steadily, giving a tough time to the fashion designers. While there were rumors doing the rounds that the sudden weight gain is due to her forthcoming film with Heroine, at quarter past ten, last night, Amitabh Bachchan gave everyone the good news.


    So, Abhi-Ash is soon going to be proud parents and needless to say, the Big B is too excited for words.

    Our congratulations to the parents to be and to all the family too!!

SRK-Aishwarya in Swades sequel???

    Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will share screen space in Swades sequel.

    This movie will mark the return of the hit jodi of Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Sources claim that the duo after making waves in Devdas, is planning a comeback.

    The jodi never worked together after Ash’s then boyfriend Salman Khan created a ruckus on the sets of Chalte Chalte, which was made by SRK’s home production.

    But now that SRK and the Bachchan family are friends again, the two might work together on screen.

    SRK has even asked his old friend Sanjay Leela Bhansali for help. Shah Rukh and Sanjay had worked together in Devdas which proved to be a major hit at the box office. And now the star has shown a keen interest in working in another film with him.

    Bhansali is keen to work with SRK too. After having made a flop film such as Guzaarish with Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan, the director has been looking for a bigger opportunity with bigger actors.

    His earlier film Saawariya too had flopped and his discovery – Ranbir Kapoor – has also been giving him a cold shoulder.

    Apart from talks with Bhansali, Shah Rukh is discussing another project with Ashutosh Gowarikar.


Aishwarya made Shahana nervous during Heroine shoot

    Shahana Goswami was a bunch of nerves before giving her first shot with Aishwarya Rai for Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine, but later she had a wonderful experience working with the former beauty queen.

    "Just gave my first shot with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for @mbhandarkar268 (Madhur Bhandarkar's) film! Came nervous but am at ease now thanks to both of them! Fun!," Shahana posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

    The 25-year-old actress, who has featured in films like Rock On!!, Mirch and Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, refrained from divulging any further details on her character in the film.

    "Can't talk about my role but its very exciting and am very happy to be working with @mbhandarkar268! Ash is a sweetheart, always been," she added.

    Heroine is Bhandarkar's take on the life and times of a superstar Bollywood actress, and the lead role is being essayed by Aishwarya.


What’s with Aishwarya’s weight gain???

    Fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the 162nd edition of the Prix de Diane horse race in Chantilly in France. Ash looked very fat and chubby. The actress was dressed in an elegant peach coloured Eli Saab creation and a typical coquettish hat.

    Just a few days back, she looked perfectly fine at the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival, and there was no indication of the added kilos.

    Well, the actress has put on so much of weight and she is going to have a tough time shedding those extra kilos for Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’. Aishwarya has not a very considerable amount of time to get back in shape if she is to look convincing as the ‘Heroine’.


Aishwarya’s ‘Heroine’ look, leaked…

    Director Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Heroine, which had Kareena Kapoor as the leading lady initially, now has Aishwarya Rai essaying the lead lady’s role. And if buzz is to be believed, Ash’s has a very very bold role to play.

    The above pic is a leaked look of Aishwarya Rai from the film’s set. Despite employing 15 to 17 security guards at the shooting location to keep Ash’s look of a fading superstar a top secret, some crew member clicked Ash’s photos and leaked it out.

    According to a source, “Aishwarya’s character in the film has the shades of gray, but from start to end it remains an ultra glamorous character.”

    ‘Heroine’ has Aishwarya Rai playing a brutally ambitious actress who uses people to achieve fame. Yet, there is a vulnerable side to the character as well. Actor Arunoday Singh plays Aishwarya’s boy toy in the movie.


Aishwarya's anger over Abhishek’s party with Priyanka!

    Well Abhishek Bhachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s marital life seems to be a bit troubled as the beautiful duo fought over a minor issue at a party held freshly. They were heard shouting at each other, at the top of their voice.
    Therefore, Aishwarya left the party and went inside her car. According to close sources Aishwarya waited for Abhishek in the car for a very long time but Abhishek hardly bothered to get out of the party and join his wife to go back home. The good-looking, blue eyed actress was so pissed at Abhishek that she had to step out of the car and get inside the party to call him.

    In the meanwhile Abhishek was seen very full of activity, chit chatting with Priyanka Chopra in the party. Abhishek Bachchan’s closeness with the beautiful Priyanka Chopra has ben going on for a very long time and both of them have done quite a number of movies with each other. It was told that some time back the two had some major issues within each other but it got resolved and they are back being best buddies.

    They are no longer part of the IIFA event. Though the Bollywood’s smashing jodi Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai has given some outstanding and memorable dance performances on IIFA stage, they are not going to perform at the award function in Toronto this year.

    Recently a Toronto magazine allegedly used Aishwarya Rai’s name in an IIFA related story. The magazine Toronto Life had Aishwarya’s photograph on the cover which said “Toronto is hosting the Bollywood’s Oscar with celebs like Aishwarya Rai.”

    Abhishek Bachchan, much aware of the all the IIFA hype and hoopla, decided to clear the air. Bachchan Junior tweets, “Just to clarify….Neither Aishwarya nor I will be performing or attending IIFA Toronto, classic case of jumping the gun!”

    However, it was recently said that though Amitabh Bachchan, the former IIFA ambassador, has dissociated himself from the awards, beta Abhishek and bahu Aishwarya will perform at the award function to be held at Toronto.

    But now it seems that IIFA and the Bachchans, once almost synonymous, won’t go along for at least a few years.

    According to a trusted source said, “Madhur wanted to finish the casting of his film Heroine since the film was announced at Cannes sometime back.

    Arunoday will play a cricketer in the film.

    The source further said, “The character is of an ace cricketer who is going around with this top actress. The whole casting is kept hush-hush and the inspiration is not disclosed.
