Vikram On His Experience With PS-1 Co-star Aishwarya Rai; Says, “She Is Always Under A Microscope”
PS-1 or Ponniyin Selvan is one of the biggest projects that the acclaimed filmmaker Mani Ratnam has ever worked on. Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus is an adaptation of a very famous novel. The film is set to be an epic tail like the novel with equally epic grandeur and cast. The film is slated to release on the 30th of September. The film stars huge stars like Aishwarya Rai, Vikram, Trisha, Jayam Ravi and Sobhita Dhulipala. The star cast has worked with each other in some capacity in the past for example Aishwarya and Vikram worked together in Hindi and Tamil versions of the film “Raavan”.
Now that they are working together, Vikram in a recent press meeting shared his experience of working with Aishwarya Rai. He said “She has stolen everyone’s heart. Aish has always been symbolic of that picture of perfection we look up to. I have seen her films. It was not just about beauty, it was about everything. It’s so very difficult being her. She is always under a microscope. She is constantly being watched. She always needs to be perfect, and let me tell you, she has done it in style.” This statement shows how much Vikram cares about his co-stars.
He further went on to say “I sense in her that confidence, that poise, that grace. Even today when you go to Chennai, or wherever in south India, there will be jewellery stores and saree stores with her picture. When I got to work with her, in 3 films actually, I witnessed her professional side.” Even a star like Vikram admits that it’s easy to feel awestruck in front of a person like Aishwarya.
He unapologetically praised his fellow star and said words that showed Aishwarya is an easy person to work with. Not only acting but Vikram considers Aishwarya a whole package of talent. From her dance to her expressions, he praised everything about her that came to his mind. “All our fans keep saying it’s so nice to see you guys together, but the only thing is, I never get her (Aishwarya) in the movies.” The actor also commended Aishwarya’s dancing skills and said, “The only time I have forgotten myself in a shot is when I saw her dance. It is music in motion. She dances so beautifully.” The actor added.
As mentioned Ponniyin Selvan is set to release on 30th September. Aishwarya Rai fans won’t have to wait much as the actor has multiple projects in the pipeline for 2023. Vikram also has a couple of films in his bag after the PS-1 release.
