MUMBAI: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has done over 30 Hindi films and several international projects. Aishwarya has even done some unequivocal gems of Tamil cinema but now the actress said she would now love to expand working experience via Marathi films.
Aish made her acting debut in year 1997 with Mani Ratnam’s Tamil political drama “Iruvar” . While her Bollywood debut was also in the same year which was a romantic comedy film “Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya”.
She said as long as this project is concerned it is “exciting” as language is not a barrier anymore.
“I have started my career with a Tamil film. I being an actor it doesn’t matter to me in which language the film is made or with whom it is made or by whom. I have carved my own journey,” Aishwarya told our sources at the music launch of fashion designer-turned-director Vikram Phadnis’s “Hrudayantar”.
“I would love to work in a Marathi language film as in any other language as long as the script excites me. I may not speak Marathi fluently but I understand it.”
Recalling her association with Vikram during her modeling days, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said the ace fashion designer had once come to her house and, “he had told me regardless of whether we follow the customary ritual of Raksha Bandhan every year or not, I will be there for you always.
“He wanted to make the film ten years ago and he had narrated it to me and Shiamak Davar (Choreographer) but I think there is a time for everything and I am glad that it’s happening now and that his first film is in his mother tongue.”
Vikram seemed emotional at the music launch of his directorial debut.
“I cannot thank my Hindi film industry enough for all the support and love right for the mahaurat of my film. After my work of 25 years in the fashion industry I owe them (a lot) and o lifetime is not enough for it,” Vikram said.
The songs of the film will be presented by T series and produced by Young Berry Entertainment, Imtiaz Khatri and Vikram Phadnis Productions in association with Toabh Entertainment. The film will be featuring popular Marathi actors Subodh Bhave, Mukta Barve and Sonali Khare.
