Milan Lutharia's 'Baadshaho' has lately been in a lot of news for his casting. While the makers had already announced that the film stars Ajay Devgn and Vidyut Jammwal, a lot of speculations are floating around about the leading lady after Shruti Haasan and Lisa Haydon opted out of the movie.
Sometime back we had heard that the makers are in talks with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to play the female lead. Buzz is that her character is loosely inspired by the late Maharani Gayatri Devi. A DNA report quoted a source saying, "Ash will play the powerful Maharani Gayatri Devi, who had defeated the Congress Party’s candidate thrice and objected to the Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi. It was then that Indira had ordered the Income Tax department to take stock of the royal house’s income and assets. The IT-department, with the help of the Army, conducted raids inside the palace seeking hidden treasure. But after three months of relentless search, the army had to call off the excavation work."
The source further added, "The Army brought with it heavy vehicles and the Delhi-Jaipur highway was closed for three days. It was rumoured that the vehicles contained treasure found during the excavation. However, it is uncertain if these trucks carried gold/ treasure or anything at all and this has remained an enduring legend about Jaigarh Fort since. “It is at this point in the story that Ajay and Vidyut come into the picture and the story gets fictionalised."
The makers are however yet to make the official announcement about the heroine! Do you guys think that Ash will give her nod to play this beautiful lady?
