All the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan fans, here is a piece of news for you’ll that might instantly bring a smile on your face. Yes, if reports are to be believed, Aishwarya Rai has signed Mani Ratnam’s next period film. According to reports, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has given the final nod to her first director Mani Ratnam and the film is an adaptation of Kalki Krishnamurthy’s novel Ponniyin Selvan (The Son of Ponni). “It’s a big-budget historical drama, which is being planned on the lines of the Baahubali franchise. It’s likely to be a bilingual project and star several other big names from the South Indian film industry. Mani approached his muse Aishwarya for the female lead and she signed on the dotted line,” as quoted by DNA.

While Mani Ratnam will make an announcement of the film around the festival of Pongal, which falls on January 14, reports are rife that the director is keen on getting Amitabh Bachchan on board and although Mani Ratnam has narrated the story to Big B, the latter is yet to confirm. While the period drama narrates the story of Arulmozhivarman, who was crowned as Rajaraja Chola I during the 10th and 11th century, this film will have an ensemble cast and according to reports, “The book has five volumes, but the makers are planning to conceptualize it as three installments on screen and Mani has narrated the script to Amitji. He is taking his time to decide whether he would like to do it. A confirmation from his end is yet to come but he has liked the idea.”

If Big B gives a nod, it will be interesting to watch Aishwarya and Amitabh on-screen together, isn’t it? For all those who don’t know, Aishwarya and Amitabh Bachchan were last seen 11 years before in the 2008-film Sarkar Raj. On the work front, Aishwarya was last seen in Atul Manjrekar’s Fanney Khan opposite Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao.

its so confusing someone tell it got cancelled

are you asking us? or informing us? or timepass?

We find it- not true.

Are you asking us or telling us.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's career if full of question marks these days. Will she do this? Will she do that?

Don't think Amitabh will want to work with Aish. He seems to be sharing cold vibes with her.

She will milk it till Mani Ratnam denies it.

Do not believe in rumours. Believe in facts.

Mani Ratnam hasn't confirmed, so it's just a rumour.

Alright, the second day in a row. Someone really wants us to believe this rumour.

Except for Mani Ratnam, all are talking about it. I'll believe only if Mani Ratnam says. Or else it's another Gulab Jamun type stunt.

She will do anything for her Pa

Need a fresh pairing. Also AB sr looks super old.
