The Malayalee actress Shobhana, familiar to the audience of Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada and Telugu as a versatile actress, is a trained dancer in classical Indian dance.
According to the filmland grapevine, Mani Ratnam is reported to have requested Shobhana to teach some classical dance postures to Aishwarya Rai who is the lead actress in “Raavan”.
Aiswarya has not been trained in classical dance, though she performed some numbers in films like “Taal”.
It is said that Aish was too happy to take lessons from Shobhana. Actually, the time for training in dance was available to Aish, because Mani is indisposed. The shooting of “Raavan” will commence soon.
