Why didn’t Ash inform Heroine makers of her pregnancy?

If there is one question which is haunting the makers of Heroine (read: Madhur Bhandarkar and UTV), it is - 'Why didn't Ash inform them in advance about her pregnancy before giving her nod of approval to the film?'

"Ash is four months pregnant and it was during April when Madhur Bhandarkar had first approached her formally for the film. Only when she said 'yes' was Heroine announced in the month of May. Since Ash already knew about her pregnancy then, it is strange that she still went ahead with the film", says a source.

This is all the more surprising since Ash shares a good professional relationship with UTV especially after working with the corporate house in Guzaarish and Jodhaa Akbar. Even with Madhur she has shared a cordial relationship over the years and together they were looking forward to working with each other for years now. However, the pregnancy announcement has now thrown the entire plan for Heroine haywire.

"While attempts have been made to camouflage this sudden development by stating that the film is 50% complete, this is far from being true", continues the source, "It is not even 10% complete. At least 65-70 days are required for the shooting and then further time is required to be spent on the post production. With just 7 days of shooting so far, Heroine has merely gone on floors."

Other problem lies with the fact that the film was supposed to show Ash drinking as well as smoking. "How can he ask a lady to smoke and drink while she is pregnant", the source continues, "Neither would anyone do that nor would anyone ask for it. That would be inhuman."

All attempts to contact Madhur failed. Informs a source, "Madhur doesn't really know what has hit him. It is way too strong a bolt out of the blue to be ignored. A regular on social networking, he is now also off Twitter. He knows how to manage difficult situations but absence of a leading lady for a female centric film is something that even he hadn't fathomed."

Same could well be said for UTV with no one available for comment.
