Madhur Bhandarkar might have forgotten the Aishwarya Rai episode and gleefully signed his original choice Kareena Kapoor for ‘Heroine,’ but all is not well with the Bachchan bahu.
Apparently, Aishwarya is mighty upset with Kareena for stepping in her shoes and accepting ‘Heroine.’ Even though Aishwarya returned the signing amount of the film, she asked the producers not to use her stills from the week-long shoot of the flick so as to have a complete closure of the project.
However, Madhur approaching Kareena became a major bone of contention between the two actresses.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Ash is rumoured to be upset with Bebo. Just the fact that Bebo decided to walk into a project that Ash was meant to resume post her maternity leave is reportedly the reason for the stress.”
When contacted, Kareena feigned ignorance and said, “Madhur and the film corporation were very keen that I should be in ‘Heroine.’ The film was written for me originally.”
