Ash annoys Mani Ratnam
Mani Ratnam is a perfectionist. He studies every angle of his film minutely and never compromises his requirements with anything so how can he tolerate the disobedience of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. As Ash is playing Sita in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, he is having a tough time in handling Ash who is doing things according to her own wish and not listening to him. The second part of the film requires Ash sans make-up but the most beautiful women of the world is adamant to put some make-up.
Mani instructed Ash to keep her make-up to the minimum as the scene speaks about her emotions of being separated from her husband. Mani knows that the natural look of Ash would go very well with the scene but who will make Ash understand the matter as she is not in the favor of facing the camera without any decoration. When Mani discovered that Ash has defiled him and she has put some basic make-up, he immediately asked her to wash it off but shockingly he failed to bend her.
Both Ash and Mani had a little difference on that particular issue and they stick to their own demands.
