Ash joins shooting for ‘The Last Legion’

Mumbai: Aishwarya Rai has left Mumbai to shoot for Hollywood film “The Last Legion” in Tunisia where she will join actors Colin Firth and Ben Kingsley in her first major international project. “‘The Last Legion’ is my first major legion abroad,” she said remarking on her first international project. “It’s a long journey for me in more ways than one,” she said, remarking on the recent controversy sparked by a purported conversation between her and Salman Khan in which the latter revealed his alleged links with the underworld. “It’s all destiny,” Aishwarya sighed. “Anyway I’d rather look ahead than behind. “Now it’s time for another new experience, another challenge. New explorations, new discoveries every single day - that’s life! I look forward to a positive existence, always...” Internationally Aishwarya seems poised at a new beginning. Two of her projects -Jagmohan Mundra’s “Provoked” and Paul Mayeda’s

“Mistress Of Spices” — are ready for release. In “Last Legion” she plays Mira, a rebel warrior.

The role requires a lot of stunts and horse riding. “I’m looking forward to all of that. Never done it before. Just after playing a warrior I go straight into the ultra feminine mould in JP Dutta’s ‘Umrao Jaan’.” “The Last Legion” also stars adolescent actor Thomas Sangster in a pivotal role.
