Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is particularly miffed by the never ending controversy surrounding her allegedly being dropped from Madhu Bhandarkar's film, "Heroine" post the declaration of her pregnancy.
Recently, Aishwayra's spokesperson said that it is ridiculous the way the actress' name is still being used to publicize the film and that too with distorted facts. "Certain sections of the media have recently carried stories on Aishwarya being miffed because of Kareena stepping into the film after Aishwarya backed out. Backed out? When did this become back out? We would like to put on record for the final time, necessary dates were given by my client as per schedules but the producers/director put a halt to the shooting leaving it 'blurred' and 'vague' for a while, not spelling out whether the film was being 'stalled', 'delayed until resumed' or 'shut down'. Please note that this is far from the truth and everyone is aware of what the fact is and that she was removed due to an implied prejudice after learning about her pregnancy."
With no end in sight for the "Heroine" saga for Ash, the spokesperson blasted, "Aishwarya's name is being dragged into every story that is appearing on the film or otherwise and is being used to get publicity. What is the need for this to go on and on? Implied news and rumours should be ignored. No one has the right to speak on behalf of Aishwarya, on what her reaction is when there hasn't been any. We have put an end to this chapter."
