Actress Supriya Pathak has saved the day for director Umesh Shukla's All is Well. The actress, who was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela has agreed to take up actor-politician Smriti Irani's role in the film co-starring actors Abhishek Bachchan, Asin and Rishi Kapoor.
Union HRD Minister, actress Smriti Irani has opted out of filmmaker Umesh Shukla's All Is Well due to time constraints. The decision to opt out was mutual and amicable, she said.
Abhishek Bachchan is an all-round nice guy but it seems that he is an even better co-star. The actor, the shoot of whose film All Is Well has been stalled due to political commitments of co-star Smriti Irani, has been very supportive of her and has shown no pangs from waiting. The film also stars Asin and Rishi Kapoor in Pivotal roles and will resume shooting when Smriti could take a break from her ministerial duties.
