Ace director Mani Ratnam has fully recovered and the shooting of his forthcoming film Ravan (Ashokavanam) is to commence 20th of this month. Starring Vikram, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Bachchan, Priyamani and others in the lead, the call sheet given by Aishwarya Bachchan for one month got wasted because of the postponement of the shooting. But Ash was promised to give extra days, just to show her regards on Mani Rathnam.

Meanwhile, the director is getting ready with his next script for the next project, reportedly titled as Rukhmani.
