Our sources reveal, “After having learnt sword fights for her English movie The Last Legion, Aishwarya has been training herself in Karate for Endhiran. A noted stunt master Ramesh who has been running a Japan Shito-Ryu karate school in the South for over 30 years, which is affiliated to the World Karate Federation is training the actress for the movie. Ramesh is teaching Aishwarya the basics of Karate for now. In the movie Aishwarya Bachchan and the other girls in the film will be learning Karate from her hero. Rajnikanth is already trained in Karate so he will not have to train himself. Some interesting scenes were shot recently in the VIT University in Chennai."
Aishwarya Bachchan has always been a quick learner. Even during the making of the The Last Legion Aishwarya Bachchan had trained herself in the sword fight. She took her skills forward in Ashutosh Gowarikar"s Jodhaa Akbar. Her trainers have always been enamoured by her quick learning skills. Apparently Ramesh was also charmed that the actress was able to repeat the karate movements easily.
Ramesh has also acted in Mani Ratnam"s Iruvar (1997) which was Aishwarya Bachchan"s first ever film. He has also acted in over 400 movies made in South India since 1986 with almost all the leading heroes of Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam languages.
