Aishwarya Rai, a 32 year old, born on the 1st November of 1973 at Mangalore, Karnataka in India is a famous bollywood movie star. She was dubbed by Julia Roberts as "the most beautiful woman in the world" and accrding to the thousands of websites and Internet polls, she is the most beautiful woman in theworld. 1,920,000 pages are fetched by Google when the exact word "Aishwarya Rai" and can be viewed as a measure of her popularity on the web.
I first saw her in a 60-minutes interview about Aishwarya Rai being the most beautiful woman in the world... but I didn't really take much notice of it as you don't see her around too often in the western world. But with the recent release of "Bride & Prejudice" in 2004 (A movie I haven't watched yet) and a recent showing of "Devdas" on SBS, had me look at this star again. You've got to remember that these Bollywood movies reach 5 billion people - twice the number of Hollywood audiences.
"The reason Bollywood films have such universal appeal is because they’re squeaky-clean. There are no sex scenes, not even kissing. Every time you think someone’s going to do it, they'll burst into song instead."
"She is not only one of the wealthiest women in India, but Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people on the planet. When she’s seen in new clothes, it invariably sparks a new fashion trend. Choosing what to wear, she says, is not so much about caring as it is, "just about being open to life and trying different things out." "
