Reports of Mani Ratnam having signed on actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for her comeback have been shunned by sources close to the filmmaker.
Apparently,��Ratnam plans on making an adaptation of the 1938 novel ‘Rebecca’, written by Daphne Du Maurier, however Times of India��report Ratnam’s wife denying��that he has signed��Bachchan, “No, it’s wrong.��Mani is currently focused on��’Kadal’, which still has seven days of shoot left. He will decide on his next only after this film releases. It will take him eight more months after that to write his next script. So, any news about his future project that comes up in this time period is false.”
Ratnam’s spokesperson��also confirmed��that��the reports were untrue and no plans have been made for the filmmaker’s next, “Mani sir is currently busy with the post-production work of��Kadal. He’s yet to decide on his next. The stories doing the rounds about his next film with Ash are just rumours.”
The main excitement��surrounding this story��comes from wanting to see Bachchan on the big screen again after she gave birth to her daughter in November last year.��However, it looks like she is really enjoying motherhood and isn’t keen on getting signed for any big project anytime soon.
