To pair with a male actor who is two decades elder is not something a Bollywood actress gets to do often. 36-year-old Aishwarya Rai had no qualms in teaming with the 60-year-old south superstar Rajinikanth for director Shankar’s film Endhiran (Robot).
Aishwarya says age factor did not figure when she worked with Rajnikant. She compares the south star to her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan.
“Rajni sir, like pa (Amitabh Bachchan) is a professional and humility personified. There was no age factor. They are both legendary actors due to their body of work. Hence, their cinema becomes exciting to the viewers. Rajni sir's humility is a lesson to learn,” Aishwarya said.
Speaking about her character in the film, Ash said it wasn’t a difficult role to play.
“So far, I have done character driven roles and not been part of conventional commercial genre for a long time. Sanaa is not a difficult character. It is what leading ladies in an entertainer do. In my case, such roles have been rare,” the actress revealed.
