Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and UTV have decided to shelve Heroine instead of working with pregnant Aishwarya Rai.

The production house has announced that shooting of Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine has been put off indefinitely because of Ash's pregnancy. She plays the lead role.

"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 once and for all," said a statement from the production house.

Ash"At this point, nothing is more important than Aishwarya's well being and good health," UTV said.

"We have all agreed that the best step would be to avoid shooting further, rather than proceeding with an incredibly demanding schedule over the coming months," it said.

It wished the 37-year-old actress a healthy motherhood.

"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," UTV said.

The project, also starring Arjun Rampal, was announced during the Cannes Film Festival this year.

After news of Aishwarya's pregnancy broke out, rumours of Priyanka Chopra being approached did the rounds.
