Shree Narayan Singh, the director of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, has just announced his new film Jasmine. The movie will be based on the topic of womb for hire.

According to sources, it’s a brave story on a woman’s empowerment, and her right to assert her sexuality. It’s about a Gujarati girl who puts her womb on hire for conceiving and then becomes attached to the baby when it is born.

Shree Narayan, who will co-produce the film along with Prernaa Arora, wants to cast either Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or Parineeti Chopra in the title role for Jasmine.

Interestingly, both actresses are nicknamed ‘Pari’. So which Pari will play Jasmine?

Says a source close to the project, “At the moment, it looks like Parineeti will beat Ash to the role, as the latter’s dates aren’t available. The team wants to start the film in August, for a start-to-finish schedule.”
