‘Raavanan’ not new age Ramayana: Aishwarya
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is quite firm in telling that Mani Ratnam’s ‘Raavanan’ is not a new age adaptation of Ramayana or any other mythological story.
Affirming her views, Aishwarya clearly tells that ‘Raavanan’ the title was placed because the character of Vikram in Tamil or Abhishek Bachchan in Hindi, is a multifaceted character. The character they play has a lot of negative shade but they are not out rightly bad people.
Further adding she says, that particular character’s nick name is ‘Raavanan’ for the wicked things Vikram does! It is an unpredictable character, while he is happy and smiling at a particular time, he acts mean and crazy the next second.
Is she reminding us of ‘Anniyan’ by any chance? Jokes apart, the movie is an interesting tale of revenge and everyone is eagerly waiting to see it!
