There is enough buzz in the industry regarding Aishwarya Rai’s much-speculated comeback with her favourite director Mani Ratnam, and now it’s heard that the actress is all set for the movie.
It was rumoured that Aishwarya Rai is eyeing a comeback in a film with her hubby Abhishek Bachchan only. However, for Mani Ratnam’s film she has been cast without her dear hubby.
“Mani Ratnam shares a fabulous equation with Abhishek and Ash. But this time he’s planning to direct a film that revolves around a female protagonist. Mani feels there is little room for Abhishek in this film,” a source is quoted as saying.
Even if Abhishek is not in the film, sources add that the movie will have popular male actors, and in all probability may have Telugu superstars Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna sharing the screen space with Ash, who will be seen playing the character of a strong woman.
If all goes as per plan, then the movie is expected to roll by July. Mani is currently doing a recce for the film which will mostly be shot at foreign locations.
Aishwarya Rai, who gave birth to daughter Aaradhya Bachchan in 2011, has been on a sabbatical for nearly three years now. Her last film was Guzaarish with Hrithik Roshan.
There’s also been a lot of buzz that adman Prahlad Kakkar has signed both Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan for his film Happy Anniversary, but there is no official confirmation yet.
