|Aishwarya Rai’s comeback movie is a matter of great speculation, thanks to her star status. Though there is a talk about Abhishek Bachchan and she doing a film for the advertising guru Prahlad Kakkar, the actress may also sign Mani Ratnam’s next.
There is a strong buzz in the industry that Aishwarya Rai has given her nod to Mani Ratnam’s film. The actress started her acting career with Mani Ratnam’s Tamil flick Iruvar, and if reports are to be believed then Aishwarya Rai is ready to make a comeback to screen after a long maternity leave with one and only, her mentor Mani Ratnam.
Earlier, there were rumours that Mani Ratnam wants both Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan for his next. He has worked with the couple in Guru and Raavan. But for the director’s next, which is going to be a women-centric film, he wants only Ash.

“Mani is planning to direct a film which has a strong female protagonist’s character. He feels there is little room for Abhishek in his next,” a source is quoted as saying.
Apparently, Aishwarya always wanted to make a comeback with her favourite directors like Sanjay Leela Bhansali or Mani Ratnam. Her item song for Bhansali’s Ram-Leela was almost finalized but reportedly Ash wanted some changes in the lyrics which Sanjay refused.
The official confirmation on Mani Ratnam’s next is yet to come! Let’s see whether Aishwarya features in it or not.
