Aishwarya Bollywood bound
Actress Aishwarya Rajesh, who impressed critics and audiences with her performance in National Awardwinning Tamil drama Kaaka Muttai, has landed the leading role opposite Arjun Rampal in her Bollywood debut. “I play the leading lady in Arjun Rampal’s latest production, Daddy. It’s a very bold, performance-oriented role and the team had originally cast someone else. However, when Arjun saw my performance in Kaaka Muttai, he roped me in,” Aishwarya said. It was one of the girls from the production team who suggested Aishwarya’s name to Arjun. “This girl recommended my name after she watched Kaaka Muttai. Arjun was thrilled with my performance and immediately got me on board, and didn’t mind my language barrier,” she said.
