Imagio Entertainments said, "Aishwarya is an extremely
talented woman and we are in daily contact with her regarding
the project after our meeting with her before she was discharged
from the Hinduja Hospital" (Rai was injured on the
set of her latest film "Khaki" shortly before
talks were due to begin).
"We had gone to Nasik to meet Aishwarya but the freak
accident at the outdoor shoot of the film Khaki, involving
the actress, had delayed our meeting. We are optimistic
that the highest paid Indian Actress would agree to the
project during her next meeting with the producers in London".
Aishwarya Rai flies to London in June for a two-week outdoor
shoot on he next film "'Kyon ho Gaya Na Pyar'".
Imagio Entertainments added that she would be meeting EON
producers for further talks during her stay in England.
Rai's agent, Hari Singh, said "Everything has to be
kept confidential at the moment, but of course it's exciting
for her. Agents have been flying out to see her about Bond.
They wanted to find out if she is available and willing.
