Is Ash in or out?

A few days back we had reported that Raj Kumar Santoshi has dropped Aishwarya from his forthcoming project Prithviraj-Sanjukta. Now reports suggest that Aishwarya Rai has opted out of Raj Kumar Santoshi's next film Saamna due to date problems. When contacted Santoshi confirmed the news saying "Dates are the culprits. Otherwise Aishwarya would've very much been a part of my next film Saamna which I start shooting in January." With Ash's choc-a-block dates taking her from Sanjay Gadhvi's Dhoom 2 to J.P. Dutta's Umrao Jaan (which she's just gone to Rajasthan to shoot) there seems little likelihood of her being free to do Santoshi's hard-hitting political drama which stars Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar and Nana Patekar. "I'll have to regretfully start looking for another leading lady in Saamna. It will have to be someone of Aishwarya's stature. And that's not easy to find," says Santoshi. Hasn't he decided to drop her from his presitigious historical Prithviraj-Sanjuka? "Not true at all! Aishwarya is very much on for that project. The only thing is, would she want do one more costume drama after Umrao Jaan, Jodha-Akbar and Jhansi Ki Rani? It's entirely up to her. But why are we talking about Prithviraj-Sanjukta now? I don't intend to go into that project until 2008. I'd be delighted to have her in all my films." However the director has been quoted as saying she's too old for the swayamvar sequence in Prithviraj-Sanjukta. "Chee chee! I'd be the last person to talk like that. She's not only a dear friend, but also one of the most beautiful and finest actresses we have. There's nothing that she can't do. As of now Aishwarya is my Sanjukta"

Actress Antara Mali is a woman with many talents. We all know that she has conceptualized, written, co-directed as well as acted in the forthcoming film Mr. Ya Miss. Now she is in the process of writing a book! Titled Psychology of the Haircut, it is a non-fiction, humorous book.

Aishwarya out of Prithviraj-Sanjukta!!

Rajkumar Santoshi's project on Prithviraj Chauhan will not have Aishwarya playing the lead role. Recently Santoshi confessed this in an interview to a section of the press, saying that Ash does not fit into the mould of the 16-year old bride in a swayamwar in the film, which forms one of the important scenes in the film. He is now planning to cast a completely new girl in the film. Interestingly, Santoshi is also unlikely to work with the former Miss-World in his other film, SAAMNA, for which she had been earlier confirmed, the reason being her date problems. Is Aishwarya Rai losing out on the opportunity of working with the much sought after director or is it the other way round?
