She moved out of the filmi circuit for sometime, and took over a new role in her personal life, that of a mother! Now that a year has passed by, Ash is ready to join the film industry now. Therefore many film makers are interested to cast her in their next. However, it can be assumed she will be giving preference to the adaptation of the 1938 novel titled "Rebecca" written by Daphne Du Maurier.

Mani Ratnam is going to make a film on the novel. An inside source reveals that the bonding of Ash and Mani Ratnam is much old, Ash debuted in 1997 in Mani's film "Iruvaar". After 10 years, she worked with him in "Guru". Soon after Ash got married and again in 2010, they worked together in "Raavan". Ash respects the filmmaker a lot, and thus does any film offered to her by him. Right now, Mani Ratnam is working on the script.
