Shooting in the thick jungles of Kerala may sound cool, but Ash-and-Abhi we're sure won't mind treading places with anyone who wishes to be in their shoes. The couple was shooting for Mani Ratnam's next, tentatively titled Ravana in Kerala. And never mind the adventure part of it all, shooting in the thick forests was proving to be pretty dangerous.
A unitwala informs us that Aishwarya Bachchan was bitten by a leech on the first day of shoot there. "The jungle is full of leeches, snakes and other wild animals that director Mani Ratnam had to hire local snake catchers to deal with such problems," we are told. But our Tarzan and Jane Bachchan aren't complaining at all, and are taking every blood sucker in their stride.
