Anushka Sharma was in the news headlines for playing a lead in a movie on surrogacy but it seems that makers have chosen a new name for the movie. They are interested to take Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the lead role of the movie.
This would be the third collaboration of KriArj Entertainment with Shree Narayan Singh. After the movies ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha‘ and ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu‘, now makers want to make women-centric movie.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is back with full force and presently busy in the shoot of her upcoming movie Fanne Khan with Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. Aish has also signed a new movie on a remake of 1967 film Raat Aur Din where she will reprise Nargis’ role. As per news reports, she has been offered Rs 10 crore for the role.
According to the reports, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been approached by the makers of the movie on surrogacy, tentatively titled Jasmine: Story Of A Leased Womb.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, producer Shree Narayan Singh said, “It is inspired by a real-life story of a woman in Gujarat who doesn’t want to have children but decides to become a surrogate mother for someone else. After a point, she gets attached to the child and wants the child back ”.
Prernaa Arora of KriArj Films also talked about the casting Aishwarya in the lead role. She said, “We would love to have her but it will depend on her dates ”.
