The Bachchan bahu has gracefully stepped into Kareena Kapoor's shoes in Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine. Kareena had opted out of the project sometime back.
Madhur Bhandarkar was reportedly considering Katrina and Aishwarya for the project that he was initially planning to shelve post Kareena's exit.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, "Recently there were talks that Madhur is speaking to both Katrina and Aishwarya Rai for the film but it is Aishwarya Rai who was always on the director's mind. Madhur has also reworked on the script to suit Aishwarya Rai as it has been a long unfulfilled dream of Madhur to work with her. The meeting happened last evening and the deal has more or less been sealed. The finances have to be worked out with UTV who are co-producing the film with Madhur."
Madhur Bhandarkar is however not willing to spill the beans yet.
He told Mumbai Mirror, "Nothing is finalised. I have taken a break after Dil To Baccha Hai Ji as I need some time off."
