According to the sources, Amitabh Bachan may be a part of Mani Ratnam’s next film with his Son’s wife Aishwarya.
Mani Ratnam is going to make a film on Arar Kalki’s epic literary novel Ponniyin Selvan. Mani Ratnam was trying for a long time to make a film on Ponniyin Selvan but things did not materialise in the past. As of now, sources say that Mani Ratnam is now all set to make the film and is busy casting the actors.
Mani Ratnam according to sources wants to cast Amitabh and Aishwarya in the lead roles. Actor Chiyaan Vikram is also going to be a part of the film. Chiyaan Vikram’s is surely going to be the part of the film but Aishwarya and Amitabh are yet to be cast by the director. Moreover, Amitabh and Aishwarya are yet to confirm if they want to do the film and together. Mani Ratnam’s last hit was Chekka Chivantha Vaanam which was a multi-starer film. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam managed to run at the box office. The director has previously worked with Aishwarya Rai multiple times like in Guru. But if things go as per Mani Ratnam’s plan, this would be the first time he would be working the Evergreen actor Amitabh Bachan. The fans will also be eager to see Amitabh and Aishwarya together along with Chiyaan Vikram. Sources say that the film will be announced on Pongal that is January 14.
