Reports of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan playing the role of a surrogate mother in movie Jasmine: Story Of A Leased Womb was doing round for the longest time now. The actress too had said that she was in talks with the writers of the film, Siddharth and Garima. Aishwarya had 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.”

But now, it has been reported that the actress has said no to the film. A source close to DNA has revealed them that, “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.”

Not just Aishwarya but also Shree Narayan Singh who was backing the project has said that the project has been put on hold for an indefinite time. “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,” said the Toilet-Ek Prem Katha producer.

On the work front, Aishwarya Rai was last seen in Fanney Khan alongside Anil Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao will be reuniting with her husband Abhishek Bachchan for Anurag Kashyap's Gulab Jamun. She also has Raat Aur Din remake and Woh Kaun Thi with Shahid Kapoor in her kitty.


Lol. She recently received "Meryl Streep Award for Excellence in Cinema" for doing women centric roles. Hahaha. That award was as fake as her beauty and personality. She should stop buying awards. She loves to buy fake awards to highlight her non-existent talent. Liar!

She should stop saying that she turns down movies. The truth is that the director kicks her out and finds a better actress.

that the second movie she turn down if she keep doing this she will lose her stardom soon

For God sake don't act or pls don't even direct
You think you are Yash Chopra?
If u dare do production instead of finding scape goats for staying in movie industry

Sit at home with your two brand endorsements and continue giving interviews on how a great mother you are

She travels the world because of her two brand endorsements. What a lucky woman!

Sure! We believe that people are still offering you films

We saw how good her script sense is since she signed Jazbaa, Sarbjit, Fanney Khan etc etc

Aish is not crazy to do this, this production house is not worth going into right now. Until they actually release a movie again, I would not trust them. She would know, she was part of Fanney Khan debacle where crew wasn't getting paid and movie was getting delayed for months at a time.

Good that she is not doing this. She can't carry an woman oriented movie

very good!!! wish kajol,rani or karishma pick up the role!!! they will justice to it!!

Prerna arora is bankrupt. Aishwarya only knows money. Lame excuse to reject a movie.

She's got bad script sense.

kajol pick this role up please!

Funny how people say Aishwarya can’t act when she has done so many good films in the past. I actually don’t like her recent movie choices but there’s no denying that there was once she chose good script and delivered good performance. In fact, the only thing I actually enjoyed in Ae Dil is her performance besides Channa Mereya.

How can her and Abhishek afford to still refuse roles? You don’t have any work! Wake up and smell the coffee

Thank god.Some talented actress should do the role unlike aish who just screams and shouts in every movie

She was fired....lolwa

Give it up babe. You ain't got no work. Nobody includes you in any events, so you have to pretend to be busy. Just go and you play pretend superwoman with your Mr.

She's over. Just pretending she's still in the industry and has enough work to reject.

Even veterans like dilip kumar did what the script and director demanded.

Im so glad she has rejected this upcoming flop. Aishwarya should stay away from bankrup Perna Arora.

Aish can control all she wants and make everything perfect. Pity she can't do that with the audience.

This woman should find something better to do with her so called career, she is older now so her unique selling point which is her face is no more as beautiful as before thus it has now shown that she was just a mediocre actress with very minimal acting talent. I thought she said somewhere that she is considering directing, I think she should start doing that.

I don't hate Aish but truth be told she is no Shabana Azmi.

And when the film becomes a hit... we will hear her say how she was the first choice in every damn interview

I just hope they take a good actress and this film becomes a hit.Will teach the Bollywood elite a lesson.

The Bollywood elite live in their own bubble. Real stores with real actors is the new rage. The Bollywood elite will be reduced to dancing at Ambani weddings and ribbon cutting ceremonies.

Well said! Dancing at Ambani weddings and going on coffee with nepo papa.

Ha ha what a joke

Learn from actors like Pankaj Tripathi and Nawazuddin who bring the smallest of roles to life on screen without demanding any change in their lines.

an actor enacts what the writer writes. The writer does not write forthe actor.

since when did the actor decide whether there are any ''loopholes''in the script.
