It has been confirmed that the blockbuster Malayalam film The Great Indian Kitchen will be remade in Tamil and Aishwarya would be sporting the female lead in it. Rahul Ravindran, an actor, a director and singer Chinmayi’s husband would reportedly sport the role of male lead in the film.
“It’s a fantastic role and a lovely script. I have seen the original and it’s an absolutely phenomenal film. It’s a story that should be told in all the Indian languages. Its theme is universal as far as our subcontinent is concerned,” says Rahul, adding, “Kannan has known my wife for at least 20 years, since the time he was an AD to Mani Ratnam sir and she would sing or dub for his films. He had also attended the screening of my film Vinmeengal and sweetly told me what he thought of the film. When out of the blue, he came to me with this offer, I was surprised. I told him I was eager to work with him. It’s a great team. And one of the biggest perks is I get to work with someone as talented as Aishwarya,” said Rahul in an interview with Times of India.
Rahul directed the Nagarjuna-Rakul Preet starrer Manmadhudu 2 and he had debuted as an actor with the film Moscowin Kaveri.
