Few days ago Southern filmmaker P Vasu, known for films such as ‘Chandramukhi’ and ‘Chinna Thambi’, said that actress Aishwarya Rai was so impressed with the script of his upcoming movie that she had given her green signal to play Kalari warrior.
But her spokesperson today released a statement denying the news.
“This statement is in reference to the press release/ rumored attachment of Ms Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Mr. P Vasu's film which has been doing the rounds very strongly today in the media and the industry. With due respect to all the professionals concerned , I would like to state that this was one among the several scripts/ ideas she has been approached for but there have been no confirmations at all. This “press release" came as a huge surprise to all of us. An E-mail clarifying this erroneous 'press release' has already been received by our office from the concerned parties,” said a statement from Aishwarya Rai’s spokesperson.
P Vasu had previously claimed that he has finalized Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for his upcoming multilingual film.
“Aishwarya was really impressed with the script. She will be seen in a never seen before powerful role. She will essay a Kalari fighter in the film and for the same she will undergo special stunt training," Vasu told news agencies in a statement.
There also have been rumors that Aishwarya Rai, who took a break from acting post the birth of her daughter, will return to big screen with a Mani Ratnam movie.
This report has neither been confirmed nor denied from both the parties.
