Actress Aishwarya Rajesh who made her debut in Tamil cinema with her supporting role in Neethana Avan wore the heroine’s hat in Aachariyangal. Unfortunately, the movie left the theaters unnoticed. After a brief period of struggle in the initial stage of her career, the actress got her first big break in storyteller M. Manikandan’s Kaaka Muttai. The Vada Chennai actress was last seen on screens in Boomika which hit the Netflix OTT platform under the direction of Rathindran R. Prasad. The flick opened to mixed reviews, and as a result did not do well commercially. But the actress has moved on to her next project, and is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming venture titled Driver Jamuna. The movie is written and directed by P. Kinslin of Vathikuchi fame. The production unit had released the trailer of the entertainer a couple of months back which enjoyed a great reception among the audience, and has clocked millions of views till date.
We had recently reported that the production house was in plans to release the flick on 11th of November this month.

In the film, actress Aishwarya Rajesh is set to play the role of a cab driver who gets embroiled in a murder case. Earlier, talking to a leading media house in the state about Driver Jamuna, film maker P. Kinslin said, “The drama will depict a series of events that transpires in a single day, and how that impacts the life of a woman cab driver. Actress Aishwarya Rajesh has given her best. As part of preparation for the role, she interacted with a bunch of real-life women cab drivers to get to know their gestures and learn from their experience.” Speaking about actress Aishwarya Rajesh’s performance, P. Kinslin stated, “There were portions where she had to perform while she was driving the car. She managed to focus on driving without compromising on her performance. We had a couple of chasing sequences. We shot them live on the road. Without opting for a dupe, Aishwarya Rajesh did it herself. She stunned our stunt master Anal Arasu and the people on the sets.”
