Aishwarya Rajesh made a mark in the National Award winning Tamil film 'Kaaka Muttai' as the mother of two boys. Now the talented actress is all geared up to make her Bollywood debut with Arjun Rampal's 'Daddy'.
Aishwarya was quoted as saying, "I play the leading lady in Arjun Rampal’s latest production ‘Daddy’. It’s a very bold, performance-oriented role, and the team had originally cast someone else. However, when Arjun saw my performance in ‘Kaaka Muttai’, he roped me in."
It was one of the girls from the production team who suggested Aishwarya’s name to Arjun.
“This girl recommended my name after she watched ‘Kaaka Muttai’. Arjun was thrilled with my performance and immediately got me on board, and didn’t mind my language barrier,” she said, and added that she’s elated with the opportunity.
Aishwarya has a little over a month before she joins the sets of “Daddy”, and in the interim, she will brush up her Hindi skills.
“As much as I’m happy, I know it’s not going to be easy in Bollywood. But this is a big opportunity and I want to make the best use of it,” she further added.
Arjun Rampal plays the role of gangster-turned-politican Arun Gawli in the film which will be helmed by Ashim Ahluwalia.
