Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was last seen in Hollywood film PINK PANTHER 2 which came to India but Ash wasn't the lead actress in it. So how long will fans of her Bollywood films have to wait to see the beauty set the screen on fire again?
Ash had two releases in 2008: JODHAA AKBAR in February and SARKAR RAJ in June. Both the films did well at the box office and Ash's performance was highly appreciated. Ash, who is currently in Delhi where she received India's most prestigious Padmashri award will return to Mumbai after some days to resume shooting for Vipul Shah's ACTION REPLAY.
But before that she was shooting with her hubby for Mani Ratnam's RAAVAN which is set to release at the end of 2009 and is most likely going to be Ash's next Hindi release after SARKAR RAJ. The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Vikram, Govinda and Manisha Koirala. The film is a modern day retelling of the Ramayana. Ash will play Sita, a contemporary accomplished Carnatic musician while Vikram is Rama and Abhishek is Raavan. Ash is also shooting for the Tamil version of the film, ASHOKAVANAM, which will release at the same time as RAAVAN. Both the films have been shot in the interiors of South India.
After RAAVAN and ASHOKAVANAM, Ash's next release is Shankar's sci-fi special-effects laden thriller ENDHIRAN with Rajnikanth. The film has been shot in the exotic locales of Brazil and Goa in India. Ash will be seen in colorful costumes in this film. The plot of the film revolves around Ash and Rajnikanth. The twist in the story is that Rajnikanth invents a robot called Endhiran who also falls in love with Ash. The film will release somewhere around in April 2010 and after that Vipul Shah's ACTION REPLAY with Akshay Kumar is also on the pipeline. Though the release date of the film is not yet out.
