It has been heard since quite a long time now that Aishwarya Rai is soon to take up a Mani Ratrnam film! Although the news came a long time back, there was no confirmation given about the same! However now, that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has returned from Cannes Film Festival 2019, the actress has just confirmed signing a Mani Ratnam movie!
Confirming the news Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said, “What I will commit to is because even though Mani (Ratnam) hasn’t formally announced it himself but the word is out. So yes, I will commit to the fact that yes, I am working with him. I won’t say I agreed…I will always be more than thrilled, excited, overwhelmed, humbled and just happy to work with my guru, Mani so ya, that is happening”. A source close to Mid Day had spilled the beans on the plot of this yet-to-be titled film stating, “The story takes place in the 10th century before Raja Chola became a king. Aishwarya will be seen as Nandini, the wife of Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar, who served as the chancellor and treasurer of the Chola kingdom. Her character is written as a mysterious, power-hungry woman who manipulates her husband to plan the downfall of the Chola empire because she has been wronged by them.”
It is known that Mohan Babu will be seen playing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s husband in the movie. Stay tuned with us at Filmymantra for more updates on this and a lot more stuff from the Bollywood Industry! Do write your feedback and suggestions in the comment section below!
