Amitabh Bachchan and his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are two of the most talented and loved actors in the country. Individually and even together, they’ve done some amazing films over the years. Yet, we haven’t seen them share screen space for over a decade now. The last time we saw them in a film together was in Sarkar Raj. But, fans can now rejoice because they are finally teaming up for Mani Ratnam‘s next period drama.
As per reports in DNA, Ash is already on board for the on-screen adaptation of Kalki Krishnamurthy‘s book, Ponniyin Selvan which translates to, 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.
While Ash is definitely on-board, Big B has only heard the narration of the period drama that revolves around Arulmozhivarman, who was crowned as Rajaraja Chola I. Here’s hoping that we get to see the talented actors come together. It will surely make an interesting watch, right?
