Aishwarya and Abhishek were staying in a resort beside the Athirappilly waterfalls near Chalakudy town for the last two weeks. They arrived at Nedumbassery airport on Tuesday morning for their return journey and will be back on 14th November for the second schedule of the film.
During the shoot, the director and his crew were keen in taking maximum effort to keep Aishwarya away from the prying eyes of fans and media. Aishwarya dons the role of Sita in Ravana and it seems Mani Ratnam does not want to expose a single frame with costume. The security was so strict that neither the media nor local people could get a view of the glamorous actress. However, it is reported that she reported on location in the costume of a Tamil Brahmin lady.
Mani Ratnam is making this film in Hindi and Tamil simultaneously. Vikram will play the villain while Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai is the lead pair in Hindi; Vikram will play the lead opposite Aishwarya in Tamil. Based on the grand epic Ramayana, Ravana is produced by Mani Ratnam's sister Sharda under Ratnam's banner Madras Talkies.
