Who will be Ash's hero?

Who will be Ash MUMBAI: While the former beauty queen and B-town actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been confirmed as the female lead for Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’, the hunt for a younger lead actor is still on.

The buzz has it that the movie requires two male actors, and while Arjun Rampal has been signed for the main male lead, Bhandarkar is still confused over whom to cast as the other man in Ash’s life.

Running among the top contenders for the role of the man who uses the leading lady as a ladder to establish himself are: Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan, and Prateik Babbar.

The Times of India quoted a close source as saying, “Ash has a very interesting track with a young actor who falls in love with her. There are also a few romantic scenes between the actor and Ash. It's a role that's being battled for between the three actors.”

"The decision is yet to be made but it will be one of these three guys. Madhur is still in the process of casting and will be making his decision in the coming weeks,” the source told the daily.

She may have been hogging limelight for her red carpet appearances abroad, but in reality Aishwarya would be facing the cameras after a gap of eight months as she starts shooting for ‘Heroine’ from June 7.

She had faced the arc lights during the shooting of ‘Guzaarish’ in September last year and after that she has been on a break from films.

Reports claim that she has been spending a lot of quality time with her husband Abhishek Bachchan and visits to the international film festivals.

Scuttlebutt has it that Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’ is Aishwarya’s story as certain instances in the film have been inspired by her own journey to fame.
