Mani Ratnam is making a film in Hindi and Tamil. In Hindi, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai are the lead actors and in Tamil, Vikram and Aishwarya Bachchan play the lead roles. Vikram also plays a prominent role in the Hindi version, the details of which are kept under wraps and which Vikram was not willing to share.
Vikram said he is not just happy, he is very excited to share screen space with two great actors of Bollywood - Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Bachchan - in his very first Hindi film. He said this film will make him prominent in Bollywood; he has no dreams of acting in Bollywood films though. He added that his Hindi is excellent, but he does not think he will be able to match either of these actors in dialogue delivery as it is not his mother tongue. But he said that he will definitely work on matching them in dialogue delivery.
Vikram and the Bachchan couple will be starring in the historic project that Mani Ratnam has signed with Anil Ambani's Reliance Big Picture Entertainment for a breathtaking Rs.120 crores. This mega project will be produced simultaneously in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
