Mumbai: The world fondly calls her Ash, but superstar Rajnikanth affectionately calls Aishwarya Rai `Tamila`.
The stunning beauty, who has confessed that she likes to be addressed as Aishwarya rather than Ash, seems to have no qualms about Rajini calling her `Tamila`.
The story goes something like this- Aishwarya managed to learn Tamil while shooting for `Robot` and dubbed her lines quite conveniently. This impressed the veteran superstar a lot who gave her a new name- `Tamila`.
We know that the Bachchan’s too prefer calling their bahu by her full name and not Ash. Now whether or not the big family of Bollywood accepts Aishwarya’s new name ‘Tamila’ is something for us to wait and watch!
