Take care boys, Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been learning karate for her new movie Endhiran. “Ramesh, a karate expert, is teaching Aishwarya the basics of karate for now,” said a source for the movie, “In the movie, Aishwarya Rai and the other girls in the film will be learning karate from her hero. Rajnikanth, the co-star, is already trained in karate so he will not have to train himself.” The film is scheduled for release in April 2010.
Rajnikanth has been impressed with the speed at which Ash has learned Tamil for the movie, as the film is being shot in both Hindi and Tamil. “She was rattling off the dialogues and getting the hang of the emotions with equal skill in both the Hindi and Tamil takes,” explained the source, “This very much impressed Rajni sir, who has waited for years to work with Aishwarya.”
Meanwhile, music director Pritam is having to work hard on the music for Aish’s entry into the movie Action Replay, in which she will star opposite Akshay Kumar. Several attempts have been rejected so far. “The mounting of this particular set which will showcase the song is so big that you need to have a sure-shot hit,” he confided, “The Action Replay songs are all based in the 70s era, so I have to make modern songs with a retro feel that appeal to today’s youth. That’s why it is taking so long.”
