Mumbai, Feb 16 (): It is confirmed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would be doing a Mani Ratnam’s movie which has Nagarjuna and Mahesh Babu as her co-stars. This film is Aishwarya’s comeback film post the birth of her daughter Aaradhya and the film is expected to start mid-2014.
This Mani Ratnam’s untitled film will be Aishwarya Rai’s first film in three years. The film is expected to start by mid 2014. The last film of former beauty queen was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial “Guzaarish” which was released in 2010. Aishwarya has taken a long break from films post her pregnancy. In November 2011, the actress gave birth to Aaradhya Bachcham and since then there have been speculations of her making comeback to silver screen.
She was expected to do her comeback movie with Abhishek Bachchan, but now reliable sources confirm that Aishwarya Rai will share the screen space along with two of the biggest stars of the Southern film industry, Nagarjuna and Mahesh Babu in the untitled movie of ace director Mani Ratnam.
Times of India reported Aishwarya Rai will be seen playing a negative role, if everything goes well. You will see her in a new avatar. The newspaper also quoted she loved the role and it was really tough for her to let go of the offer.
Mani Ratnam has already signed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Shruti Hassan for his bilingual film. He has approached Sonakhsi Sinha to do another lead role in the movie, but the ‘Dabangg’ actress turned down the offer due to date issues. She has already given dates to two forthcoming films ‘Action Jackson’ with Ajay Devgn and Tevar with Arjun Kapoor. Her upcoming film Holiday, opposite Akshay Kumar, is due to release on June 6. Reports say Shruti Haasan will be mostly featured opposite Mahesh Babu.
