Aishwarya Rai, who was worried how she would manage her tight schedules, is now relieved; she had signed Shankar’s Robot which stars Rajinikanth; she has also signed Mani Ratnam’s bilingual with Abhishek in the Hindi version and Vikram in the Tamil version; earlier, the schedules of these movies clashed. Aishwarya was worried about an impossible juggling of schedules that was dangling above her head like a sword. But she still went ahead and signed both films.
Pleased by this, director-producer Shankar has decided to give a 2-month break to Aishwarya Rai when Mani Ratnam’s film shooting begins. And moreover, filming for Robot begins in July or August, a little earlier than Mani Ratnam’s film which begins in September. So this buys Aishwarya time that she can spend on her homework too.
It also shows how cooperative Kollywood directors are.
