As per the latest buzz Shruti may share screen space with the blue-eyed beauty in Mani Ratnam’s next which will star Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna in the lead
Reports about Aishwarya Rai Bachahcan making her comeback on the big screen with director Mani Ratnam’s next has been doing the rounds for a while. Though Ash hasn’t made an official announcement regarding the project, a source told a leading daily “She has been in talks with Mani Ratnam but the details of the film are still not known. But she has given her consent. I also know that the makers are planning to start shooting sometime around September-October.” In fact, rumours are rife that the Bachchan bahu’s character will have grey shades. That’s not all. We have learnt that Shruti Haasan has also been roped and will be seen alongside Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu in Roja director’s yet to be titled film.
While talking to a daily, a source said, “She (Shruti) is on board now, unless there are some last-minute changes. She will be mostly paired opposite Mahesh Babu.” However, her manager told the daily, “I wouldn’t like to comment except that she hasn’t been signed on as yet, so let’s not speculate. I am sure various actors are vying for that role. Obviously, she is interested.”
Well, we aren’t surprised that Ms Haasan is keen on doing the film. Coz if the grapevine is true and Aishwarya is indeed making her comeback then it would surely be an interesting film, no? Also, two south superstars – Mahesh Babu and Nagarjuna are coming together for a Mani Ratnam film – it can’t get any bigger than this, hai na?
