Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has opted out of Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Heroine after she had participated in a week’s photo-shoot for the film because of her pregnancy. She has also returned the signing amount of the film to the producers UTV Motion Pictures.
It is now reported that Aishwarya has sent a legal notice to director Madhur Bhandarkar and the producers UTV warning them against leaking her photo-shoot to promote the film Heroine. The notice explicitly stated that the producers should not use Aishwarya’s name or images while promoting the film. The notice stated that in case the pictures she shot for Heroine get leaked out as a promotional mechanism for the film, she will claim damages.
The reason for the legal notice is said to be that some pictures of her week long shoot for Heroine had been posted on the web.
