Both Kollywood and Bollywood are agog with a buzz that Suhasini, wife of ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam, may direct Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for a film soon, which is going to be a women-centric subject.
If sources are to be believed, Aishwarya shares a very good rapport with Suhasini right from ‘Iruvar’ days (the former Miss World’s first feature film which was directed by none other than Mani).
“It was in fact Suhasini who helped Aishwarya to get her act right by making her feel comfortable with Tamil dialogues. Their bond reached the next level when they started working for ‘Raavanan’, for which Suhasini is the dialogue writer,” sources say.
They add: “Now that Suhasini, who earlier directed Arvindsamy-Anu Haasan starrer ‘Indira’, is planning to wield the megaphone again, she wanted Ash to be part of the project for which the beauty queen too expressed her consent”.
