"Sexy in India is not considered positive. But, with today's crop of fresh faces in the modelling arena, being sexy is an asset."
Why we love Aishwarya Rai
Aishwarya Rai or Ash as she is known to her friends (that’ll be you once you’ve read this) is a former Miss World winner. She’s also one of the most successful Indian actresses in the world. A catch then.
After making her way as a model, Aishwarya Rai gravitated towards film. Some, you may know, like Devdas, Dhoom 2 and Guru. Some, you will probably have heard of, as they were international hits and fired her fame into the stratosphere, like Bride & Prejudice, The Last Legion and Pink Panther 2.
Aishwarya Rai's not only a successful model and actress but she has brains too and can actually speak five languages. Uncharacteristically a completely non-speaking version of her is soon to be available in plastic. Barbie dolls inspired by her are being made and orders around the world have come in at an alarming rate already.
