Chiyaan Vikram and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be sharing screen space with each other yet again in Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan. The first part of the film will hit the theatres on September 30. While Vikram will be seen as Aditya Karikalan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen as Nandini in the film.Speaking at a press conference, Chiyaan Vikram said that being Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a scary experience. He said, 'She has always stolen everyone’s heart. Every time there have been many women, who have been queens, Aish (Aishwarya) has always been symbolic of that picture of perfection we look up to. I have seen her films, I've watched her and I think it wasn't just about beauty, it was what she stood for. I've always felt she has been under a microscope. It's so very difficult being her. She is constantly being watched, constantly needs to be perfect, and let me tell you, she has done it in style. I got to work with her, I saw the other side where she is professional. It's three films with her actually. I like the way that she puts into her character, it's very difficult. This one is even more difficult now that she's a mother, needs to spend time at home, needs to give Abhishek his time, gets her lines straight...and she is still under the microscope. It's such a scary place. They always say that it's lonely at the top, it's very scary. Aish, it must be so scary being who you are...All our fans keep saying it’s so nice to see you as a pair, but the only thing is, I never get her (Aishwarya) in the movies. They knock me off.”
