The couple has been enjoying their well deserved break with a stay at a picturesque resort beside the famous Athirappilly waterfalls near Chalakudy town for the last two weeks. Last few weeks have been quiet eventful for the couple following Amitabh Bachchan's illness and subsequent hospitalization later followed by a long shoot in the gruelling conditions in Kerala forests with no mobile connectivity and harsh climatic conditions. Finally, the couple managed to get some time off to relax and get back on the sets rejuvenated.
Also it is learnt that a tight security cordon has kept the press and the fans away from the film set, as Mani Ratnam reportedly does not want anyone to get a glimpse of the costumes being worn. However, it has been leaked that Aishwarya arrived on set dressed as a Tamil Brahmin.
The Mani Ratnam film is supposedly a modern day adaptation of Ramayan, and an intense love story focused on the Ram-Sita pair, played by Aishwarya Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan in the Hindi version with south top star Vikram playing Ravana. But Vikram replaces Abhishek as Ram in the Tamil version. The Tamil version of the film is also going to be dubbed in Telugu.
