Since the first-look has been revealed and the music launched, Mani Ratnam’s Raavan has become one of the most anticipated films in recent times. Starring in the film are Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan in what will be their first film together post-marriage.
Aish is super-excited about the role, more so as Ratnam has been very lucky for her career in the past, “I must thank and credit Mani sir for having conceptualised this awesome character for me. My character Ragnin has to perform dances, stunts as well as facing the brunt of the weird character Raavan.”
It was rumoured very early on that Aish’s character would mirror that of Sita and Abhishek’s of Raavan from the mythological Ramaayan. However, Aish chooses to deny such rumours, “Actually this film cannot be compared to any mythology as such. There is no co-relation to any epic as such.”
Talking about working with Abhishek, Aishwarya reveals, “On reel, Abhishek performs in an imbalanced manner. But by the end of the day we are wife and husband and we do not discuss much about our filmi affairs when we are off the set”.
Mrs Bachchan seems to be just as excited about the film as the audiences are about the film. To see the golden couple together on-screen will be as magical as always but Raavan is sure to show them both in a very different light. If the music is anything to go by, this film is definitely going to be one to watch out for!
