Movie halted amid reports Bollywood star pregnant

A blessed event is putting a crimp in a planned film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie "Heroine" has been put on hold following reports that its star, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, is pregnant.

“At this point nothing is more important than Aishwarya's well being and good health,” the movie's producers, UTV Motion Pictures, said in a statement. “In that context, we have all mutually agreed that the best step would be to avoid shooting further, rather than proceeding with an incredibly demanding schedule over the coming months.”

Announced at the recent Cannes Film Festival, "Heroine" was set to tell the story of a top Bollywood actress – which would not have been a big stretch for Rai Bachchan.

Often touted as the "most beautiful woman in the world," Rai Bachchan is one of the top stars in the Indian film industry, along with her actor husband Abhishek Bachchan, whom she married in 2007.

The Daily Mail reported that the actresses' father-in-law, actor/producer Amitabh Bachchan, broke the news via Twitter when he tweeted "NEWS NEWS NEWS!! I am going to become a grandfather. Aishwarya expecting... So happy and thrilled!!!

    That is great! I have been a fan since she won Miss World. I am a Black American who enjoys music and movies from other cultures. Not all Americans are clueless about other cultures.

    What did the Hiindoo do when he saw a bar of soap? He went into extreme panic and ran. Taking a bath is against their religion.

    I will just say congrats to the family, and kudos to the filmmaker for being more concerned about her health than money. Rare, that.

    This is a wrong report..Ash maybe one of the most beautiful woman but she is definitely not Bollywood's top actress. She has given some major flops.Oh BTW did i say she can't act. And it would be better if you don't mention her husband. The amount of flops he has given might reach infinity soon. I can't believe he still get movies. If he was not a Bachchan i think he would be working as a gate keeper in studios.

    i posted that because it suprised me. i always thought it would be the exact opposite. being an electrical engineer i have worked with many people from india. they sure arent the nice happy people portrayed by the media. these people are clannish, biggotted, mean, nasty racist. im sure not all are that way but the ones i have met are the rudest most racist people in the world.

    Y,all wouid not be so glib if you saw this woman. She truly is "the most beautiful woman in the world", & gives even Angelina Jolie a run for her cheekbones! Happy for the parents & grandpop to be, but hope she still does the movie!!

    Google her name 'Aishwarya Rai'.....typical American to be ignorant about the world...... The director/producer has forced her to go through extreme situations on purpose, especially learning about her pregnancy. This lady has more fans than Angelina Joe Lee, this isn't going to fly in the international media!

      No one cares about your fake feces, kid. Go tell it to your gramps... he might find it amusing, because we don't.

      While you're at go play in traffic.
