Following this, Aishwarya Rajesh had acted in an extended cameo in Arulnidhi’s Aarathu Sinam, and even in that movie she had played a mother of a girl. However, Aishwarya had always wanted to play mainstream roles like college student and usual commercial heroine roles.
But all the offers that reach her happen to be that of village roles or mother roles. Even in Chiyaan Vikram starrer Saamy Square, she plays Vikram’s pair, as the mother of another Vikram, and in Lakshmi, she plays a mother of the main character played by Ditya.
