Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the name signifies more than a successful Bollywood actress. She is a force to be reckoned with, a household name that graces more than a billion lips. She transcends the status of a mere celebrity with innumerable notches to her belt. Aishwarya Rai burst upon the world stage when her striking beauty, poise and commanding elegance won her the Miss World crown in 1994. Once bestowed with the honour there was no stopping her. The countless Bollywood blockbusters testify her credibility as more than a beautiful face. Two decades have gone by and it seems like Aish still has a long way to go.
Born on 1st November, 1973, Aishwarya Rai is a true embodiment of the Scorpion spirit. Her determined and focused demeanour has been exemplified throughout her career. In spite of a huge fan following, Aishwarya Rai has had her own share of harsh assessment and highly cynical critics. Her place in the Indian film industry has been questioned on many fronts, none of which has managed to deter her from her ambition. She seems to have grown immensely, imbibing and learning from every negative response directed towards her. Moreover, her passionate nature has been personified in the roles she portrays. Every dialogue, dance-step and emotion drips with her unwavering resolute and passion for her character. With over 40 movies to her credit, Aishwarya Rai has solidified her place not only on the silver screen but also in the heart of every Indian.
Aishwarya last appeared on the big screen in 2010 as Sofia D’Souza in the critically acclaimed movie, ‘Guzaarish’. With about three years of absence from filming due to the birth of her daughter, the big question looming over Bollywood is Aishwarya’s comeback and more importantly, the movie in which she will make her big appearance. Rumour has it, she will be starring alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’. The other gossip headlining the grapevine is her offer to be featured in the next Karan Johar movie. The two are alleged to have had an in-depth discussion about the script leaving Aishwarya rather intrigued and inclined towards this production.
While fans are eagerly waiting for her epic comeback, let’s find out if the stars are in favour of Aishwarya’s return or not. The year 2013 is predicted to be moderately constructive on the professional front. She will be approached for numerous projects, thus the challenge lying in selecting the one which fully exploits her potential. It is believed that a highly experienced individual will be approached on a personal level to take this decision for her. Moreover, this year foresees immense growth for Aishwarya Rai. It therefore becomes essential that she chooses opportunities and offers which will stimulate her career and give it the required direction and focus. Motherhood combined with a highly pressurised return and an intruding public interest poses a number of roadblocks for the superstar. Hopefully, she will make the best of what is handed to her. She’ll steer through problems and prove her worth once again.
