Elegance and beauty of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is unparallel and it has been shown in best possible way in J.P Dutta’s Umrao Jaaan. The movie has been released in the year 2006 and it has been a remake of 1981 movie starring Rekha with the same title. For the character of Umrao Jaan, both beauty and charm are required. Therefore, Aishwarya has been the perfect choice for this movie. However, you may be surprised to know the fact that she has not been first choice for the part. Yes, you have heard it right. The part of Umrao Jaan has gone to Aishwarya as Priyanka Chopra has refused the offer due to date issues.
For the titular role in Umrao Jaan, Priyanka Chopra has been chosen by the director J.P Dutta. However, she has to refuse the movie as she cannot give 90 consecutive days for the movie. During the time, Priyanka had a choker block schedule with several works. The movie has not done very well at the box office. Therefore, Priyanka admirers may be elated that she has not been part of this movie.
Filming process for Umrao Jaan has not been easy at all. First, Suniel Shetty has been signed for the movie instead of Arshad Warsi. Later on, Vaibhavi Merchant has come on board as a choreographer in the place of Saroj Khan. However, the movie has not managed to make a mark at the box office at all.
Yet again, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen together in Anurag Kasyap’s Gulab Jamun. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra is pretty busy with her upcoming movie The Sky is Pink.
