Actor Priyanka Chopra is not amused by media reports suggesting that she has offered to step into Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s role in Madhur Bandarkar’s film, Heroine, now that Ash is pregnant.

"Baseless. There’s just no truth in it. I have not offered to step into anyone’s role in Heroine. I have been out of the country for more than two weeks now and am totally unaware of the controversy around Madhur’s film. I’m very upset and angry at being needlessly dragged into the whole situation. I respect both Madhur and Aishwarya tremendously and only wish them well in everything they do. It’ll be amazing to work with Madhur again but this film ain’t it," she said, speaking to HT City from Los Angeles, where she’s holidaying with family.

"Read some stupid article about how i wanna do Madhur Bhandarkar's 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," the Bollywood star posted on Twitter.

"I also wish that journos would actually do some journalism rather than scriptwriting and stop deciding my next moves!!!" she added.

With Aishwarya pregnant, shooting of the film has been postponed. Rumours were abuzz that Priyanka was eager to be part of the film. The the actress has now put an end to the speculation.
