Mani Ratnam’s Tamil/Telugu film starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Mahesh Babu and Shruti Haasan has been put on hold. In fact, it may not happen at all. And it has nothing to do with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan doing Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa.
According to a reliable source, the reason for the film not taking off is that Mahesh Babu could not confirm his dates and as a result of which there was a problem with the co-ordination of all the other actors’ dates.
The filmmaker, it is learnt, will now be working on a Hindi project which will be his next. Mani Ratnam’s last Hindi movie was ‘Raavan’ with Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
