Anonymous : All the actors in the films are around 40 , s that is not an issue like Akshaya Kumar is playing Prithviraj. Apart from that Aishwarya is playing both Nandini and her mother Mandakini, so she is anyway playing her age. Most of the time they cast a young actor and white his/her hair for father/mother role but this time it is reverse which is a progressive thing.
