Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is pregnant. And at the time when IIFA is on top of the mind in Toronto, Sr Bachchan’s ‘Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap’ is all set to release and Aishwarya’s film ‘Heroine’ is on the floors, frenetic activity all over and the announcement by a proud dadaji(grandfather) to be has started creating a frenzy of speculations and stories about the pregnancy, the timing of the film among others.
But whatever the accusations may be, Amitabh is surely a prod Dada now.This ensures that they have the third generations Bachchans by birth. As Amitabh tweets and we retweet, “Amitabh and Ajitabh, first generation Bachchan... then Abhishek and Bhim and now Abhishek’s and Aishwarya's…”
Ash’s pregnancy has thrown up many interesting angles.
1: What happens to Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’?
A: Madhur was made aware of her pregnancy before the shooting went on floors. Ash has been finishing her shots with ease and ensuring that she finishes her work before she puts on a lot of weight. Ash is still making public appearances and is looking plump as well. And that has also made Madhur wary of a lot of things. The kind of shots he has been taking are all his wide angle shots. Madhur has also used a second camera to do the close up shots so that he does not need to get the same location later as well.
2: What happens to other announcements like Rajkumar Santoshi’s ‘Ladies And Gentlemen’?
A: This film may well be shelved or postponed. Santoshi had been refused by many actors and his film ‘Power’ went powerless after Ajay Devgn pulled out of it. His Katrina Kaif starrer also had to be shelved because the actress was not giving him dates. That left him with this film starring Abhishek and Ash. But then this romantic comedy may well be shelved because of that.
3: What happens to Ashutosh Gowariker’s dream of uniting Ash and SRK?
A: Well, that does not seem possible for a few years now.
