LONDON, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai has signed on to co-star with Britain's Ben Kingsley in a feature film about the Taj Mahal, the BBC said Wednesday.

Rai, the 33-year-old star of "Bride and Prejudice" and "Provoked," will play the role of Mumtaz Mahal, the favorite wife of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the $30 million as-yet-unnamed film, which will be shot in India.

Jahan, who will be played by Kingsley, built the famed monument for her.
