Aishwarya Rai Makes Peace With Madhur Bhandarkar

It was high time really....considering how the media made the relations between Aishwarya Rai and Madhur Bhandarkar worse and worse. Finally, the common sense prevailed despite media efforts, and both have resolved their differences over the cancellation of the film "Heroine". Amitabh Bachchan ended the 'pregnant' silence from the Bachchan camp after Bhandarkar posted a rejoinder on his blog to Bachchan's earlier Twitter posts suggesting that Bhandarkar and UTV had acted spitefully by dropping the film just because Aishwarya was pregnant. Amitabh Bachchan, who was in Ahmedabad yesterday to promote Buddha Hoga Tera Baap, announced the reconciliation when asked to comment on the controversy created by his initial remarks and Bhandarkar's rejoinder.

Aishwarya Rai’s “Heroine” Into Production From Today

Aishwarya Rai is back on the film sets. It was a long break from acting, considering the fact that it has been 9 months now that she gave a shot for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish opposite co-star Hrithik Roshan. Well, This time, Aishwarya is shooting for the much anticipated Madhur Bhandarkar's movie "Heroine". It is special in many ways, but what I like the most challenging is that the film production is supposed to be wrapped in just 45 days. Phew! That will take some hard work. I hope this speed doesn't affect the performances and storyline and the whole outcome of the movie. Madhur Bhandarkar, a national award-winning director, (if you don't already know) is super excited about his most ambitious project ever. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was a part of the mahurat scene as the production of the movie begins today on June 7th, 2011. It's Tuesday.
