Actor Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan has sent a legal notice to her former producers warning them against leaking her photo-shoot to promote Heroine.
The producers and the director of the film Heroine won’t be able to use Aishwarya’s name, while promoting the film. The actor, who was unceremoniously sacked following the announcement of her pregnancy, has sent a letter through her lawyers that she will seek damages if the pictures that she has shot for the film earlier, gets leaked out.
“Aishwarya is wary about the extensive photo-shoot that she has done for the film. She was shot in numerous costumes. There were also a few shots that were canned as a test run. She is wary that those scenes might be leaked out as a promotion for the film,” says source.
The letter that was sent through her lawyers, specifically addressed to Madhur, mentions that the actress will claim damages if any of those pictures or shots come out in the media.
“Ash has already returned her acting fees, so there’s nothing that makes her liable to her director or producer. She is still upset with the way Madhur wrote a huge blog against her which basically called her a liar. She always wanted to come back and complete the movie, but the way things turned out, has left a bad taste in her mouth,” the source adds.
Though UTV and Madhur didn’t comment on the legal notice sent to them, sources in the production house confirm that such a notice has arrived.
“Madhur was not planning to use those stills, but we guess Ash didn’t trust us. The photo-shoots that we have done with her for the promotions are really great pictures. We are sorry that these pictures won’t be revealed ever to the world. Aishwarya is looking just awesome in the pictures. We are putting it in our safety vaults where it won’t come out ever,” says a source from the production house.
