The couple’s visit to the temple was more than just a token gesture. They did not just walk in, pray, and walk out of the temple; rather they chose to be on the temple premises for some time.
Sources from the unit of ‘Raavan’ are quoted as saying that Ash and Abhi prayed to ask for the smooth progression and release of the film.
It’s no secret that ‘Raavan’ is being talked about in the industry as a jinxed film. At the very start itself, the movie’s shooting got delayed because of the sudden ill health of Amitabh Bachchan, who doesn’t even star in the movie. Later, director Mani Ratnam had a heart stroke and the shooting schedule was thrown out of gear. Even the shooting hasn’t been progressing smoothly.
Not long back an elephant went berserk on the sets and killed a mahaut. Rains washed away the movie’s sets on another schedule and the unit also had trouble with forest officials.
So many mishaps seem too much to be seen as just coincidences, and it was about time when Ash and Abhi prayed to God for divine intervention.
