Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: She’ll be back!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: She’ll be back!

It’s apparently happening… All Aishwarya Rai Bachchan fans can finally take a long sigh of relief as she is all pumped up to be back on celluloid after a rather long hiatus. Mani Ratnam is apparently planning to direct a film wherein he has written a pivotal role for a female protagonist and he wants none other but this gorgeous actress for the part. This would not be the first time they would be working together – the team did wonders in ‘Guru’. 

According to sources, Mani has received a green light from Ash for the part as well. As Aaradhya is starting play school soon, the devoted mama would finally have some time to divert to her acting career. If all goes well, Mani Ratnam’s would be the first film post Mrs. Bachchan becoming mommy dearest.
As for the filmmaker himself, let’s hope this venture turns out to be a fruitful one, considering we all know what happened with ‘Raavan’…
For those of you wondering whether Abhishek Bachchan would be part of the cast again, it was revealed that there is no strong part written for a male character that could be offered to Abhishek. So Abhi-Ash fans, this time you will have to make do just with one Bachchan on screen.
