Abhi-Ash had narrow escape

92The latest Abhishek Bachhan – Aishwarya Rai starrer and Mani Ratnam directed Raavan has been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently. We all know how much gung-ho the couple are about each other, and go to any extent to spend quality time with each other, but this was not what we had in mind!

Recently, Mani Ratnam was supposed to go have a look at the Elephant which was required for the shoot the next day, and Abhishek-Aishwarya volunteered to accompany him, but to everyone’s dismay, hell broke loose there.   The elephant went berserk killing the mahout and taking off on a stampede that had Abhi-Aish and Mani hiding in the jungles until help arrived which controlled the giant elephant.
According to a source present, “Abhi-Aish and Mani went hungry and thirsty for over ten hours, after which they were rescued, there was no news about their safety, and both their parents were very worried.”

Raavan seems to be the most taxing fillum for Mani Ratnam as well. The havoc started with Mani’s health scare to a rampaging elephant to severe viral infections and malaria! All this leads us to think that a flick can be made o the making of Raavan as well !
