Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been spending at home with Abhishek Bachchan, Aaradhya Bachchan and others amid the ongoing pandemic. The actress is yet to resume work and earlier this year, reports of Aishwarya starring in Pradeep Sarkar's Binodini Dasi biopic came in. The popular courtesan from Kolkata also known as Noti Binodini became the topic of Sarkar's next film and Aishwarya apparently gave the filmmaker the nod as per reports that came earlier in 2020. Now, in a recent chat, the filmmaker shared his hope for a vaccine by March so that he could work on the film. 

In a chat with Mid-Day about the film reportedly starring Aishwarya, Pradeep Sarkar said that the actress had given him the nod for Noti Binodini biopic and that he is working on the script for the same. However, the filmmaker revealed that he has also started working on a dark comedy and a psychological thriller side by side. He even mentioned that he is waiting for 'crisis' (COVID 19) to abate so that he can kick off shooting. In the chat, the filmmaker mentioned that he is unable to give proper narrations to actors via Zoom calls. 

Talking about Aishwarya starrer Noti Binodini biopic, Pradeep Sarkar told the national daily, "The writing is in progress. While Aishwarya has given her nod, I have not approached other actors because I am waiting for the crisis to abate. I hope the vaccine is developed by March so that we can start shooting." He further mentioned that maybe before Aishwarya's film, he may kick off one of the other two scrips that he has penned. Noti Binodini was a popular courtesan who, at age twelve, played her first serious drama role in Calcutta's National Theatre in 1874. Reportedly, Pradeep's film starring Aishwarya will trace the life of the protagonist, her successful career as an actress along with the story related to the men in her life.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya is currently spending time at home with her daughter and family. Back in July, she along with Aaradhya, Abhishek and Amitabh Bachchan were infected with COVID 19 and were hospitalised. They have recovered fully and are back at home. On the work front, Aishwarya will also be seen in Mani Ratnam's film based on the novel Ponniyin Selvan.

Old hag you're flop and has-been. You won't have a hit movie until Salman, Aamir, Akshay, Ajay, or Amitabh work with you. Even Shahrukh is flop now.

Aishwarya works best when other people do all the work and she takes credit. Examples are HDDCS, Devdas, Dhoom, ADHM. When she has to work herself and there is no one else she can mooch off of, she comes up with masterpieces like Aao Ab Laut Chalein, Dil Ka Rishta, Provoked, Shabd, Mistress of Spices, Sarabjit, Raavan, Jazbaa, Fanney Khan.

I really find her average Her eyes, lips,nose are average nothing special ya she is beautiful but not the most beautiful in the world not even in Bollywood there are many people billion times more beautiful than her some Bollywood actresses like Katrina kaif, madhuri,sridevi are wayyyyy more beautiful than her.(My opinion)

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Her big round face, brown eyes, flat cheeks, beak like nose are so overrated. If she takes out green contact lenses, takes off her wig, wipes the paint and white powder from her face..then she'll look average.

Aishwarya's face without heavy glamed up makeup and wigs looks like she's sick. She's not a natural beauty. There are thousands of women who are natural beauties and they look stunning without makeup.

Katrina is really beautiful and way more beautiful than aish. Aish is overrated because of her eyes. Kat hasn't done anything to her face ther was an infection in her wisdom teeth.

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Come on, same goes for Aish. She’s beautiful but has changed every feature of hers including eye and skin color wigs and has a frozen smile. Both she and SriDevi looked better longer but Katrina messed up her beauty early on only with too much Botox.

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

I think Aish was lucky that she survived in BW only because of her looks...a really bad actress IMHO but i dont agree with ur opinion on her looks...Katrina& sridevi are mannequins who have changed every part of their looks thanks to their surgeons...In fact towards the end Sridevi started looking lik MJ...Katrina looks like a zombie now.

All performing arts will probably be among the last to return. Dangerous for artists, crew, audiences, etc. Patience, prayer, care and of course Science will determine any safe/sane schedule. Millions of dollars lost, but thousands of lives saved. Wishing all the best.
