Aishwarya Rai on Rajini

To those who raised rumours that she was not acting in 'Robot' with Rajini, Aishwarya Rai has given her answer in her interview. Are you acting with Rajini or not?

This is a total Rajini-Shankar entertainment film. My main reason for agreeing to act in the film is my eagerness to act with Mr. Rajini. Shankar and Rajini have approached me to act in many films except Shankar's 'Boys.'

This is the reason for your acting in 'Robot'?

I immediately accepted the offer to act in 'Robot' because I am eager to work with Rajini sir and Shankar. My film 'Jeans' directed by Shankar was a great hit. I learnt a lot from it. I'm sure I will learn a lot from 'Robot' too.Is 'Robot' a science fiction film?

It's difficult to put it in a genre. But in terms of technology, it will take the film to the next realm. Rajini is a wonderful person and many speak about working with him with pride. I would like to join with them. Rajini approached me a few times to act in his films and had absolutely no ego about that. Even though I had to turn him down, he never took any offence to that at any time. That really touched me.

Aishwarya Rai went on to heap more praises on Rajini. With this interview, she has put a stop to gossip.
