Ash in 'The Last Legion'
Valerio Massimo Manfredi, the Italian historian and author of about 17 historical novels, has some unflattering words for Aishwarya Rai’s acting in the movie The Last Legion which is adapted from his own book.
While talking to a news agency, Manfredi said not only was the character that Aishwarya Rai played in the movie changed completely from what it was in the book, she acted badly on top of it.
“My character of the leading lady was totally different. She was from a village but Aishwarya was totally different. She was the lover of the protagonist…but she acted as if the film was for kids,” Manfredi is quoted to have told IANS.
However, Manfredi was all praise for Aishwarya Rai’s eyes. But he regretted the lack of expression of love in them.
“She has such strong expressive and beautiful eyes. Some little expression of love would have made the film more different,” Manfredi added.
Manfredi was in India to launch the Indian editions of his popular Alexander trilogy.
