Aishwarya Rai will not star in Jhansi Ki Rani
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has her platter full of offers, but Jhansi Ki Rani definitely doesn’t figure in there. The Bachchan bahu has reportedly walked out of Ketan Mehta’s historical film. She’s done the epic Jodhaa Akbar and will be soon do another with Ben Kingsley (Taj Mahal), so yet another period drama isn’t exciting. According to Ash, she never agreed to do the film. She says perhaps her learning sword fighting and horse riding may have triggered rumours. However, the lessons were meant to help her in Jodhaa Akbar and The Last Legion. By the way, isn’t Sushmita Sen playing Rani Laxmibai in her debut directorial venture?
