It is official, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is being considered for the movie Jasmine, a surrogacy drama produced by KriArj Entertainment. It was earlier reported that Parineeti Chopra was also being considered for the said role. However, official sources have now confirmed that nothing has been finalised as yet regarding the project.
In fact, producer Shree Narayan Singh rubbished all the reports regarding casting and said that it is too soon to comment on who is being cast as the lead of the movie, but that they are seriously considering Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for the part.
“We are in the process of casting for Jasmine and are in discussions with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. However, it’s too soon to comment at this stage. Casting for a film is a creative process that cannot be rushed into. An official announcement will be made soon once things have been finalised,” the producer told indianexpress.com.
Aishwarya will next be seen in KriArj Entertainment’s Fanne Khan.
