“We would like to put an end to the speculative and factually incorrect stories doing the rounds,” said a statement from the production house.

“At this point, nothing is more important than Aishwarya’s well being and good health. We have all agreed that the best step would be to avoid shooting further, rather than proceeding with an incredibly demanding schedule over the coming months,” the statement added, wishing Rai-Bachchan and her husband Abhishek “the very best”.

The project, also starring Arjun Rampal, was announced during the Cannes Film Festival this year.

Meanwhile Priyanka Chopra has rubbished reports that she will be replacing Aishwarya.

“Read some stupid article about how i wanna do Madhur Bhandarkar’s film HEROINE... I think Madhur is an amazing director. It’ll be amazing to work together again but GUYS this one aint it!!! I wish him and Aishwarya lots of luck with the film (sic),” she tweeted. “I also wish that journos would actually do some journalism rather than scriptwriting and stop deciding my next moves!!!” she added.
