Mani Ratnam and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan;–AP file photo

There are reports doing the rounds that director Mani Ratnam is roping in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for an adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's famous 1938 novel Rebecca.

However, these reports have been denied by sources close to Mani Ratnam. When TOI contacted Mani's wife, Suhasini, she denied the report that Ash and Mani will be working together next. Asked if the director had roped in Ash for Rebecca, she said, "No, it's wrong."

Suhasini went on to add, "Mani is currently focussed on Kadal, which still has seven days of shoot left. He will decide on his next only after this film releases. It will take him eight more months after that to write his next script. So, any news about his future project that comes up in this time period is false."

When TOI spoke to Mani Ratnam's spokesperson, he also said, "Mani sir is currently busy with the post-production work of Kadal. He's yet to decide on his next. The stories doing the rounds about his next film with Ash are just rumours."

Even though the industry is waiting for Ash to announce her any new project, guess we will just have to wait and watch.
