Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has teamed up with Malayalam star Manju Warrier for a commercial advertisement for South Indian jewellery giants, Kalyan Jewellers.

Aishwarya Rai and Manju both are the brand ambassadors for the company. Three commercial advertisements has been released which features Manju Warrier and Aishwarya Rai who talk about the opening of the biggest jewellery showroom in Thiruvananthapuram.

Manju had earlier featured in an ad with Amitabh Bachchan, who is also the brand ambassador for the same jewellery group. The ad, which talks about the trust, failed to impress the audience but the oned starring Aishwarya has picked up quite well.

In the ads, Aish is seen talking to Manju in Malayalam.  Both the actresses will arrive at the capital on the 20 October for an event that is organised by the jewellery group.

Earlier, there were rumours that Aishwarya will replace Manju in an ad alongside Amitabh Bachchan. But the recent ad has quashed all the rumours.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Amitabh and Aishwarya have collaborated with a South star for endorsing the brand. Last year, Mollywood star Dileep was seen with Amitabh for the first time in a Kalyan Jewellers advertisement. He also teamed up with Aish for an event.

"It is a blessing to get an opportunity to work with Big B, albeit for an ad," the 43-year-old actor told The Times of India.
