Recent talk of the town is that Bollywood’s blue-eyed beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will soon be working on a South Indian flick under the direction of the man who introduced her to cinemas, none other than Mani Ratnam himself. If sources are to be trusted, calling this film a star studded one will be an understatement as audiences might soon get to see Aishwarya,Nagarjuna, Mahesh Babu and Shruti Haasan in the same film!
In a recent interview Ash revealed that she was supposed to mark her comeback with a Mani Ratnam flick but the same couldn’t happen due to unavoidable circumstances. Aishwarya is currently shooting for Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa. Although she further went on to add that the project is still in progress and viewers will soon be seeing her in a film directed by Mani. The duo has previously worked together in films like Iruvar, Guru, Raavan and Raavanan.
Apparently this venture will also be a bilingual one where the Telugu version of the film will see actors Nagarjuna and Mahesh Babu in lead roles. Jodhaa Akbar star Aishwarya Rai Bachchanwill be romancing Nagarjuna while Shruti Haasan is being eyed to play Mahesh Babu’s love interest in the film. No confirmations regarding the same have been made yet.
News of Mani Ratnam’s Telugu flick with Ash, Nagarjuna and Mahesh Babu getting shelved were doing its rounds last year. But according to Aishwarya’s latest statement, looks like the project is back on and will soon take shape. Isn’t it exciting? Well only time will tell how much of this star studded film’s updates turn out to be true!
