UTV yet to decide fate of Ash-starrer 'Heroine'


Mumbai, June 25 (IANS) UTV, the producer of Madhur Bhandarkar's next "Heroine", seems to be completely flummoxed by the news of their lead actress Aishwarya Rai's pregnancy and they are yet to decide how to go about with the film.

Recent media reports said there have been rounds of meetings in the last couple of days between Aishwarya, Madhur and UTV chief executive officer Ronnie Screwvala on whether to defer the film or shelve it.

"Discussions are still on. I would be able to come back to you once I get the concrete status from the top management," a UTV spokesperson told IANS.

"There are lots of speculations in the market. We will make sure we communicate something from our side," the spokesperson added.

Madhur needs six months to complete the film. It's been reported that Aishwarya is expecting her first child in November, so both UTV and Madhur seem to be in a fix.
