brought to you the details of KriArj Entertainment (Prernaa Arora & Arjun
N. Kapoor) and Shree Narayan Singh’s third collaboration (after Toilet: Ek Prem
Katha & Batti Gul Meter Chalu). The film, as we are informed is inspired by a real life story of a woman in Gujarat who doesn't want to have
children but decides to become a surrogate mother for someone else. After a
point she gets attached to the child and wants the child back. And now, the
latest development in the project is that Aishwarya has been approached to play
the lead. Talking about the casting to Mumbai Mirror, Prernaa said that
Aishwarya tops her wishlist. "We would love to have her but it will depend
on her dates," she says.
When asked why Shree Narayan Singh is not directing this film, Prernaa points out that he will be busy with Batti Gul Meter Chalu. "That's why we are launching two new directors. We will still have him as editor and co-producer," she asserts.
SpotboyE had also told you earlier that the story will be based on a social issue and will have an author backed role for its female protagonist. Shree had shared his excitement on being part of this exciting project. “Jasmine is the journey of a girl to motherhood, of eternal love between a mother and a child. I have always wanted to work on a women centric film and I’m able to do so."
The concept of
Jasmine was pitched by writers Siddharth and Garima after 3 years of research.
Shree and Prerna instantly liked it, and the script is ready to roll now. We
hear that the makers are looking at an early 2018 start for Jasmine.
Now, let’s see if Aishwarya steps in to play a surrogate mother in Jasmine or not.
