Last time when we have talked with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, she has said that the script of Siddharth and Garima’s ‘Jasmine’ has been heard by her already. The movie is all about a surrogate mother. On the occasion, Aishwarya has said “Our talks had stopped around February this year, but now, I will take the discussion further. Right now, I don’t know whether I’m doing it or not. I liked the concept, but asked them to make a few changes to the script.”
Now, it seems that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has taken a decision on the movie. According to our source, “Aishwarya has turned down Jasmine. There were several loopholes in the script. Although Siddharth and Garima’s basic idea was strong, there were many problems with the story, which the actress had reportedly pointed out to the writer duo. After the corrections, they approached her with a fresh script, but Ash still felt she couldn’t relate to it. So, she politely informed the team that she won’t be able to do the film anymore.”
It is believed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has pushed the movie for too long. Previously, Batti Gul Meter Chalu director Shree Narayan Singh has been producing the movie. However, he has backed out of the project as well. Regarding the movie ‘Jasmine’, Shree Narayan Singh has said “The film should have gone on floors by now. But Siddharth and Garima, too, had other commitments to complete. So, I will not be able to tell you when it will start. It’s currently on hold.”
However, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has said yes to Anurag Kasyap’s Gulab Jamun where she will be seen with her real life husband Abhishek Bachchan.
