To Ash ‘bhabhi’, with love from Kolkata
Shooting in Kolkata for Mani Ratnam’s Ravana was one experience Aishwarya Bachchan won’t forget for a long time to come. After all, with the kind of fan-frenzy the actress witnessed in the city it’s easy to imagine why. Not only did the fans line up the lane leading from
her cottage to the shooting site as early as five in the morning, but also followed her to the ghat where the actress was shooting. For a sequence Aishwarya had to shoot in a boat and the entire ghat was filled with onlookers.
A source reveals, “Several of them even tried to swim towards the boat to get a closer glimpse of Aishwarya. When she was shooting alone a few fans kept shouting ‘I love you’ to her. However, interestingly the ‘I love yous’ changed to ‘Bodhi’ (sister-in-law in Bengali) as did the tones as soon as hubby Abhishek came on the sets. This amused Mani Ratnam too.” Looks like Ash’s quite the flavour of the city this season!
