Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s look in Heroine is being guarded well. After imposing various bans on sets, the producers have employed 15 to 17 security guards at the shooting location to keep Ash’s look of a fading superstar a top secret. “Members of the crew are being frisked thoroughly. Junior artistes, who are most likely to leak pictures, have been banned from carrying mobile phones,” says a source.
Director Madhur Bhandarkar has prohibited all guests from visiting the sets. “Makers are keen to safeguard the look, especially after Hrithik Roshan’s pictures from Karan Johar’s Agneepath remake made their way into the media. Security guards have been told to keep a close eye on photographers sneaking onto the sets,” adds the source. Says Siddharth Roy Kapoor, CEO of UTV, that is co-producing Heroine along with Bhandarkar Entertainment, “We are guarding Heroine’s look because it has interesting and never-seen-before sequences. We want audiences to look at them in one go when the film releases.”
Aishwarya, on her part, has impressed the filmmakers with her professionalism. “She has been a dream to work with. She is extremely co-operative and very professional,” says Kapoor. The movie, which is being shot on a start-to-finish schedule, is expected to wrap up by August.
