Aishwarya, who was in a black kurta salwar and dupatta, ran from the front row to meet Ponniyin Selvan director Mani Ratnam. She greeted him with a hug and he patted her back. Mani Ratnam launched Aishwarya with her debut film Iruvar in 1997. The two went on to work together on Raavan and Guru.

We have been students, admirers of you and continue to do this forever.”
