No Aishwarya Rai item song in my film: Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Mumbai, Aug 10 (IANS) Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has clarified that there is "no truth" to rumours that actress Aishwarya Rai has been roped in for an item song in his under production project "Ram Leela".

The rumours made people wonder if Aishwarya, the much-missed diva would dance her way back to the screen after her self-imposed sabbatical in favour of motherhood. However, the filmmaker, who worked with her in "Devdas" and "Guzaarish", has completely cut down the rumours.

"First it was Sonakshi Sinha, then Madhuri Dixit. Now it's Aishwarya. None of the three rumours has any truth to it," said Bhansali.

Aishwarya remained unavailable for comment, but a source close to her said: "At the moment Aaradhya (Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan's daughter) is Ash's one and only priority.

"Yes, she is slowly looking at scripts again, and some very good ones. But you know what? She gets tempted, and then again she decides now is not the time. She doesn't want to miss out a single moment in Aaradhya's growing-up years."

However, the source said that there are chances that Aishwarya just might greenlight the remake of 1983 film "Masoom", to be produced by Himesh Reshammiya and directed by Bedabrata Pain. For one, it is a story that Aishwaya loves. Secondly, the makers are willing to adjust the schedules according to her convenience.

"But an item song? No way," the source added.
