Aishwarya to play a surrogate mother


Aishwarya Rai is on a roll. Soon after she made headlines for apparently signing on the remake of Raat Aur Din at a whopping Rs.10 crore, she is on her way to inking another project. The film, titled Jasmine, is a real-life story based in Gujarat which will go on the floors later this year.The film is a co-production between Shree Narayan Singh (the director of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha) and Prernaa Arora’s production house. It will apparently be directed by Siddharth and Garima, the scriptwriting duo who has early written Toilet: Ek Prem Katha as well as the Shahid Kapur-starrer in the making, Batti Gul Meter Chalu. The duo has penned the script for Jasmine as well.
The film, which will revolve around the topic of surrogacy, will be shot in Gujarat and Pushkar in Rajasthan, after the monsoon. They had apparently researched the subject for three years before they found financial backing.
Jasmine will tell the real-life story of a woman in Gujarat who doesn’t want to have children but agrees to become a surrogate mother for someone else. However, along the way, she develops a strong attachment to the child and wants the child back. The ensuing months will be spent perfecting the script and prepping for this emotional drama.
Jasmine would be Ash’s third project with KriAarj – besides the under-production musical Fanney Khan in which she plays a diva, she is also doing the remake of the 1961 mystery thriller Raat Aur Din for which Nargis bagged the National Award for Best Actress, reports Agencies.
