For every actor, there is a person who they look up to in the industry and they consider the same person to be their guru. Speaking of this, it is a known fact that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan thinks of the ace filmmaker, Mani Ratnam as her guru. The actress has worked with the filmmaker time and again, since her film in 1997, Iruvar. Now, Aishwarya is all set to play the role of an antagonist in the adaptation of Ponniyin Selvan and as she gears up to work with her guru, the actress shared her feelings about the same.
In a recent chat at an event in Chennai, Aishwarya opened up about her upcoming project with Mani Ratnam. The film has been the talk of the town since Aishwarya announced her association with it at Cannes 2019. The gorgeous actress said that she is extremely honoured and privileged to work with her guru again in the adaptation of Ponniyin Selvan. Aishwarya also said that she is looking forward to the collaboration again. Aishwarya’s last film in South was with Rajinikanth’s Robot back in 2010.
Aish said, “You all already know. I am working with Mani garu, my guru, in Ponniyin Selvan. It is my honour and privilege to work with him any and every time, throughout my lifetime as an actor. I am really looking forward to it.” The film is the official adaptation of Ponniyin Selvan and Aish will be seen playing the antagonistic wife of Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar. Reportedly, the film also stars Jayam Ravi, Karthi and Vikram in important roles. Meanwhile, the actress recently returned to Mumbai after a long vacay with Abhishek Bachchan and Aaradhya in New York.
