We had barely reported that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was apparently turning up late on the sets of Vipul Shah’s Action Replay, when the director quickly confirmed that the rumors were incorrect. He rectified the information to a leading newspaper by saying, “This is totally false. Aishwarya has an extraordinary look in the film. We always knew it would take time for her to get ready because of which we had planned the shoots accordingly. We have not had any delays because of her. In fact, she is working 15 hours every day for my film. She is extremely professional and I am delighted to be working with her.”
The rebuttal was of course, expected from the renowned director. However, one does wonder if her professionalism is courtesy of the lesson she was supposedly taught by the director a few days ago. Action Replay also stars Akshay Kumar in an all out action role, much to his earlier reputation. The film is being shot outside of Mumbai at ND Studios in Karjat.
While the world knows the film as Action Replay, the director is yet to confirm or deny the title. The plot evolves a scientist, played by Randhir Kapoor and is also said to have Ranbir Kapoor as the son of Akshay and Ash in the film. The film is claiming to be a “futuristic” one similar to that of Back to the Future.
