Birthday Special: Aishwarya rocking @40


The epitome of beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is celebrating her 40th birthday today and on this D-day, we turn back the pages of her life to look back and cherish her achievement, films, marriage and parenthood. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was born to Krishnaraj and Vrinda Rai as Aishwarya Rai on November 1st, 1973. She studied to become an architect but destiny has stored something different for her. She entered into modelling and crowned Miss India world in 1994.

Aishwarya ventured into acting after winning the title and starred in Tamil film, ‘Iruvar’. The film was not a commercial hit but she was noticed in the film. Next she starred in Bollywood film, ‘Aur Pyar Ho Gaya’ but she tasted her first success with ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ in 1999. Aishwarya starred in hit movies like ‘Taal’, ‘Guru’, ‘Devdas’, ‘Dhoom 2’, ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ and the list goes on. She is considered the cynosure of all eyes and a perfect blend of beauty and brain. Her beauty is mesmerizing and cine-goers can’t stop praising her beauty.

Honestly speaking, it’s her beauty which is more discussed rather than her acting. Aishwarya is also an exceptional dancer. She is a trained katha dancer and showed her dancing calibre in few movies.  Aishwarya is an international figure too. She is the brand ambassador of foreign cosmetic brand L’Oreal Paris for long years and starred in few Hollywood movies as well. She has also been conferred with French award. Aishwarya has been a regular face at Cannes film festival for the past 11 years.  Aishwarya had the honor to appear on Oprah Winfrey chat show twice. She is also the international goodwill ambassador of UNAIDS.

Not only due to her achievement but Aishwarya also remained on the limelight for her personal life. She was in a relationship with Salman Khan but the duo had a much publicized break-up, later she formed a relationship with Vivek Oberoi but it too ended on a bitter note and finally the diva happily settled down with Abhishek Bachchan in 2007. In 2011, the couple was blessed with a baby girl, named, Aaradhya.

Today, Aishwarya is in a happy space. Though currently she is on a break from work for her child, that doesn’t mean Ash is away from the spotlight. She was there and will always be on the top.

We wish the beautiful actress and a doting mother Aishwarya Rai Bachchan a very happy birthday and peaceful life ahead.
