Aishwarya opposite Rajnikanth in Robot


MUMBAI: After Shriya Saran, it’s now Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has been cast opposite South superstar Rajnikanth.

The actress will be seen in Shankar’s science fiction film Robot. Incidentally, Aishwarya also starred in Shankar’s earlier film titled Jeans a decade ago.

Robot is being produced by Eros International’s Ayngaran International. The music of the film is by AR Rahman. Robot will be made in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and other languages.

Rajnikanth’s last year release Sivaji – The Boss was a huge success in India. Aishwarya, on the other hand, will soon be seen as Jodhaa Bai in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s epic drama Jodhaa Akbar. She is also a part of the Hollywood film Pink Panther starring Steve Martin and Andy Garcia.
