Aishwarya Rai's acting is for kids, says Italian writer

The diva of late has got into limelight for her poor acting - a fact that was brought up by noted Italian historian and writer Valerio Massimo Manfredi, whose book 'The Last Legion' was adapted for the film with the same title and that featured Aishwarya.

Valerio, who was in India to launch his popular Alexander trilogy, stated to media that he was not impressed with Aishwarya's performance in 'The Last Legion' and he felt that she had "acted as if the film was for kids".

Referring to his book, Valerio said that the character of the leading lady was totally different from what Aishwarya had played. "She was from a village but Aishwarya was totally different. She was the lover of the protagonist...but she acted as if the film was for kids," quoted Valerio in an interview.

However, the author was appreciative of Aishwarya's eyes, calling them expressive and beautiful. Still, he was unhappy that she couldn't bring out the right expressions. Said the writer, "Some little expression of love would have made the film more different. The editing was so much like a video game, so many passages were missing...I am not criticizing."

In 'The Last Legion', Aishwarya plays the role of Miira, a Kerala warrior who is trained in the martial art of Kalarippayattu.
