The movie had been left in the lurch when actress Smriti Irani, the union human resource development minister, decided to step out of the project after shooting for over half the movie, to devote her time full-fledgedly to her cabinet duties.
Now, Supriya has stepped in for the role of Abhishek Bachchan's onscreen mother. However, Supriya said that while "it's an interesting role and talks are on, we have not signed the papers yet".
Smriti had reportedly shot for 30 to 40 percent of the film. It will be reshot with Supriya. The makers were earlier also in talks with Tanvi Azmi and Shefali Shah for the role, but things didn't materialise. Now that all's well, the shoot of 'All Is Well', which also stars Asin and Rishi Kapoor, will resume on January 15.
