Aishwarya Rai intends to have a quiet family birthday

Ash, one of the most popular bollywood actresses celebrates her birthday on 1st November, she was born in the year 1973 and made her mark when she went on to win the Miss world crown in 1994, she went on to do several big ad campaign and also Hindi films. She made her debut in Indian cinema with a Tamil film ‘Iruvar’ in 1997 and has had a decade long innings in bollywood. Ash is termed as one of the most beautiful women not only in India but worldwide, she has done several Hollywood films and has even appeared on popular American Talk shows like Oprah Winfrey and the David lettermen Show. She was also one of the first Indian actress’s to serve on the Cannes jury in 2003.
On the occasion of her birthday when she turns 33, Ash says “My day will start with a visit to the Siddhivinayak temple with my family, something I do every year. There will be no loud parties, my birthday is a very private affair, only family and friends will be there.” Ash claims that she is not the type to throw huge lavish birthday parties but prefers to spend her time in the company of near and dear ones. Ash will also be going to Dubai tomorrow on work and so has not planned any elaborate birthday celebrations today. Ash did not deny or confirm if beau Abhishek Bachchan would also be present with her on her birthday but she states “Abhishek is a friend for sure. We get on really well. He’s fantastic at what he does and deserves the acknowledgement he is getting now. And even though he never played a prank on me, I have no doubt that he is a brat.”

Ash is unfazed about rumours of her impending announcement of her marriage in February next year and has decided to maintain a dignified silence on the subject. She says “People think that I am diplomatic and guarded always but that’s because I have a family and their sentiments matter to me most in the world.” The next few months will be critical for Ash’s career as she will be making a return to films after a long hiatus, she also has around four films lined up for release one after the other, beginning this Friday with Umrao Jaan followed by Dhoom 2, Guru and her Hollywood project The Last Legion. Ash looks forward to all her films and she is seen playing a different role and character in each of them. Moreover she will also be seen with beau Abhishek Bachchan on screen in several of her forthcoming films.

Ash has taken bollywood by storm ever since she entered on the scene, she had a great beginning with several endorsements and many producers were keen to cast her in their films. But life has not been all rosy for this gorgeous actress, she has received quite a bit of flak for several of her wooden performances by critics and she has had just a few hits and may flops to her credit. Ash has also suffered several personal setbacks especially her earlier publicized volatile relationship with bollywood actor Salman Khan. Nonetheless Ash’s commercial value has not deteriorated and still commands high value in the industry. Ash models for several popular brands such as Coca Cola, De Beers diamonds and is the face of many cosmetic products like L’Oreal etc. The two Hindi films for which she was widely appreciated were Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Devdas’.

Well we wish the birthday gal a very Happy Birthday and a bright future for her forthcoming projects.
