She was the winner of the Miss World pageant in the year 1994 and has never looked back since then. She was the first actress from Indian film industry to become a part of the jury of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. She is also the brand ambassador for Longiness that happens to be a famous international brand, since 1999. She became the first Indian women to find a place in the Rolling Stone magazine and she has been voted as the most attractive woman in umpteen numbers of surveys. Do you need any more hints to guess the name of this diva? You guessed it right…we are talking about none other than the beautiful daughter-in-law of the Bachchans…the one and only Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Her contribution to the world of cinema, fashion and society deserves a special mention, not to forget her role in promoting Bollywood internationally. The way she manages her professional and personal commitments is something that all working women can learn from. Last seen in Guzaarish opposite Hrithik Roshan, she reportedly will be seen next in Jazbaa, directed by Sanjay Gupta. Here are certain things that we all can learn from this gorgeous 41 years old lady.
- Failure is the pillar of success
Her entry to Bollywood was not easy and she faced a lot of criticism as all her initial films flopped. But this lady preferred to stay and fight the tough competition she faced. She won the ‘Filmfare Award’ in 1999 for her biggest hit ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ but that was not the end. More failures but even more hits followed and she was even criticized for her fashion sense but she did not let anything get into her head and affect her strong personality.
- Personal and professional life should never be mixed
Aishwarya Rai is amongst those rare Bollywood divas that prefer not to talk about her personal life. Be it her abusive relationship with the reigning Salman Khan or about the one she shared with Vivek Oberoi, she always thought that staying silent is the best for her.
- Taking risks and crossing boundaries
She has only been the reigning queen of Bollywood but she also took the risk of trying her luck in other Indian film industries like Bengali, Telugu and Tamil and she made a mark there as well. She has been a constant face in the Cannes film festival and she has worked in several Hollywood projects as well. She always chose to do different roles and always looked for challenges while signing films.
She married Abhishek Bachchan at the age of 33 on April 20, 2007 and chose to settle down. She became a mother to a little princess on 16th November, 2011 and she chose to let go of her professional commitments and give all her attention to her baby and become a perfect mother.
- Balancing personal and professional life
She has set the perfect example of being a loving mother, responsible daughter-in-law and a supportive wife. She understands her commitments and live upto the expectations of all the people around her.
All these factors make her a complete woman, a woman we all can look up to.
