Aish’s Poster with a Red Rose – How it came into being

“Aish’s poster with red rose -how it came into being” I was in deep thought at that moment of time Sanjay just called the still and clicked me. I was not even aware of the fact. When I asked him when did he click this snap? He then told me,” This picture is so very natural, I got it clicked when you were in a deep thought.” And this picture turned into a poster. Amazingly brilliant poster indeed!” Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on Raavan, Abhishek Bachchan and Mani Ratnam

Raavan has been a gruelling experience for you?

Why just me? Everyone in the film has gone through an equal amount of hardships to create a film we all believe in. There we were, getting drenched in the rain, and Mani Ratnam , Santosh Sivan …everyone was there facing the weather. We were all friends in the project. Everyone was there for one another. We could joke say it was like an adventure sport, or a video game while we were making our way through the most impossible conditions. But we knew what the truth was.

Were you prepared for the severe hardships when you read the script?

It was still a bit of shock and surprise when we had to face the climactic conditions in the jungles. On top of that Mani loves to make on-the-spot changes . He improvises all the time. He doesn’t want to strictly follow the written word. He’s a master of creating magical moments out of the seemingly ordinary. What he does is incredible. Just the pleasure of working with him again (after Iruvar) was amazing.

Is Abhishek being made the Scapegoat for Raavan’s Failure?

There has to be something really flawed about a film which is based on ‘Ramayana’, has Mani Ratnam at the helm of affairs, stars the Bachchan couple, boasts of music by A.R. Rahman and has the who’s-who from the technical department. Still, ‘Raavan’ hasn’t worked with the audience. We analyse why!

‘Raavan’ Nosedives; Makes ‘Kites’ look Better

Till just a few days back, the industry was smiling with the blockbuster success of ‘Raajneeti’. However, the smiles have vanished all over again with ‘Raavan’ turning out to be disaster at the box office. Wait, before we delve into the box office fate of the film, let’s also talk about the film by itself. The fact remains that this Mani Ratnam directed film is disastrous even from the content and execution perspective. Certain films have good content but get marred by poor execution. Some films have a decent execution but the script doesn’t contain much meat to take them through. However, when the combination of both these factors turns out to be poor, there is nothing that can salvage the situation.
