She stated, “I allocated my dates for the film last year but all of a sudden, they wanted my dates again in August. In the meantime, I committed four films and as I’m answerable to those producers, there was no option left but to opt-out of Indian-2. I couldn’t sleep for two days because of that decision. For an actress who came to the industry without any backing, working with Shankar sir and Kamal sir was a big opportunity. It would have been a historical moment for me, missed it.”
Aishwarya also talked about her upcoming film Namma Veettu Pillai. “Yes, there was an initial inhibition because I was not sure whether mainstream heroine character would be offered to me in the future. But actors like Sivaji Ganesan and Savitri have set us a good example long back. Moreover, the story of Namma Veettu Pillai was too good to say no to”, said the actress.
