After Iruvar, Guru and Ravana, Aishwarya Rai has acted again under the direction of Mani Ratnam. Aishwarya Rai, who has always respected director Mani Ratnam, is delighted to talk about her daughter Aaradhya’s contribution in Ponni’s Selvan. It is noteworthy that Aishwarya Rai is playing two roles as Nandini and Mandakini in Ponni’s Selvan which is releasing on September 30.
Aishwarya Rai starred in Iruvar under the direction of Mani Ratnam and again acted in Guru with her husband Abhishek Bachchan under the direction of Mani Ratnam. After that she acted in Raavanan starring Siyan Vikram and Abhishek Bachchan. In this case, Aishwarya Rai has played the role of Nandini in Ponni’s Selvan directed by Mani Ratnam for the 4th time. Actress Aishwarya Rai plays dual roles as Nandini and Mandakini in director Mani Ratnam’s 25th film Ponniin Selvan.
Aishwarya Rai plays the role of the destroyer of the Cholar clan and the protector of the wealth of Ponni, the Cholar clan prince. Many scenes of Ponni’s Selvan were shot in Jaipur Palace. In this case, there are opportunities for her daughter Aaradhya to come to Ponni’s Selvan shooting spot to meet Aishwarya Rai. I was also surprised when my daughter said in amazement, “Mom, it’s amazing to see the shooting of the epic film.”
Aishwarya Rai said in a recent press meet that she was surprised to see that her daughter Aaradhya showed respect and love to the director Mani Ratnam more than the extent to which actress Aishwarya Rai respected Mani Ratnam. One day the director Mani Ratnam calls Aaradhya and asks her to tell him the action that the directors tell the actors to perform after they hit the clapboard. Aaradhya also used the opportunity without missing a beat. So far even I have not got such an opportunity in Mani Sir. Aishwarya Rai said that I am very happy that my daughter got that privilege.
