Fans love Aishwarya’s old video
Fans loved the video. A Reddit user commented, “I mean, she’d beat even any of the best American supermodels till date on her poise and the sheer elegance and eccentricity she possess while presenting herself.” Another said, “Her and Sushmita both amazing at the runway. None of the Miss India’s after that were this good.”
Aishwarya’s latest film
Aishwarya made her film debut three years later with Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film, Iruvar. Her latest film was also directed by Mani and brought Aishwarya a lot of praise for her performance in a dual role. She played the role of Nandini and Oomai Rani in Ponniyin Selvan II.
On being praised for the film, the actor told NDTV, “There’s a reason we salute Mani Ratnam and directors like him, who do create work like this, and that’s why it is such a pleasure for us as artistes to work with them, and to come away with results like this and movies like this, where we are proud of the work we have done. We feel immensely satisfied and Ponniyin Selvan has definitely been immensely satisfying for all of us.”
Aishwarya at Cannes 2023
Aishwarya now makes headlines with her red carpet appearances especially at the annual Cannes Film Festival. This year, she wore an aluminium detailed gown with a signature corset and an embellished hood as she walked the red carpet ahead of the screening of Harrison Ford’s fifth Indiana Jones movie – The Dial of Destiny.
Sometimes, the actor is trolled for her never-changing hairstyle and for holding her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan’s hand in public at all times. The actor however, doesn’t pay heed to such comments.
