Aishwarya to play Abhishek’s Godmother!
After marriage, Aishwarya Rai will face the camera for Ram Gopal Varma’s ambitious sequel Sarkar 2. If sources are to be believed, the actor will be playing the pivotal role of a manipulative daughter-in-law of the Nagre family.
The plot: By now Abhishek has assumed the position of the patriarch; an aged and feeble Amitabh Bachchan keeps himself to the house. The filmmaker, who is adept at making underworld-related films now shifts the focus to the daughter-in-law who eventually, evolves as the matriarch in the family.
Apparently, the plot has Aishwarya masterminding strategies to retain the family’s monopoly in different underworld businesses. Abhishek will be shown falling back on his wife in times of crises. A source from the production house says, “Aishwarya’s character holds a lot of importance in the sequel. Amitabh Bachchan will be reduced to being a helpless old man who has only his experiences to share with his son, the new godfather. Abhishek, along with his wife, will run the business and sort out problems of the people. Aishwarya will be seen as a shrewd woman.”
Another source adds, “She is not an out-and-out negative character. She strikes a balance between her household work and the family business. She loves her family, at the same time she can be ruthless when it comes to dealing with wayward characters.”
Reportedly, Ash will sport minimal make-up in the film. Another source close to the actor says, “She is quite excited about the film. The plot is quite close to real life. She will play bahu to the family.”
The film is supposed to hit the floors in June.
