Aishwarya Rai about 'Heroine'

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's next movie will see her playing a Bollywood superstar, but on Friday she said it won't be a biopic of her own glamourous life.
The movie is produced by UTV Motion Pictures and will feature Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as a superstar, the project will go on floors by June this year. ‘Heroine’ is said to be the most ambitious project of Madhur Bhandarkar.

Heroine, by director Madhur Bhandarkar, is billed in the production company's press release as an "entertaining, daring, emotional, shocking, glamorous, scandalous behind-the-scenes account of the reality behind the world of glitz and glamour that our stars inhabit."

Remember his ‘Fashion’ with Priyanka Chopra that gave a stunning account of the modeling world?
Still, Aishwarya — a former Miss World — stated that the film, which enters production in June, is "not an autobiography, for sure."

Promoting "Heroine" at the Cannes film festival, Indian-Hollywood actress Aishwarya Rai told journalists that "Heroine is a movie that the team was very thrilled about, and yes I have just agreed to come on board. Madhur has been speaking to me for many years about collaborating for a film and I am glad we are finally working together on Heroine. This venture certainly looks like a strong creative synergy and I look forward to this new journey in the movie".

This is the film Bhandarkar has been subconsciously preparing for ever since he joined the industry and one which he considers his magnum opus.

The filmmaker is best known for his films "Chandni Bar" (2001), "Page 3" (2005), "Traffic Signal" (2007) and "Fashion," a 2008 movie starring Priyanka Chopra about the Indian fashion industry.
