aishwarya rai and amitabh bachchan to reunite on screens for this director

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her acting debut in Mani Ratnam's Tamil film 'Iruvar'. Since that the actress has collaborated with Ratnam many times.

And now according to reports, Aishwarya will be seen after a long time working with Mani Ratnam in the film which 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 instalments 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."
