Ash’s wax statue comes to New York on 15 August

Although some say that bollywood is being recognized internationally and others claim that it still has a long way to go, there are now some reasons to believe that other countries like the UK and US have a fair share of bollywood fans. After the premiere of Chak De in London and Los Angeles as part of ongoing Indian festivals for the 60th year of India’s independence, now Aishwarya Rai’s wax statue will be coming over to New York on 15th August.
The statue will be displayed in New York from 15th August which is India’s Independence Day. However this is not a new statue of Ash that will be unveiled in New York, the statue is on loan from Madame Tussauds in London and the exhibit is only temporary. The statue will be first seen on the opening Night party and it will be in New York for approximately six weeks. Recently there were rumours that Ash is pregnant ; however the actress is busy with her films and has denied that she is pregnant. In fact Ash will soon be seen in another international project Pink Panther 2 where she will play a detective alongside Hollywood stars Steve Martin and Andy Garcia. According to sources Ash is also being considered to play an Indian Bond girl. Earlier too Ash has been considered to play the role of a Bond babe, but unfortunately her clause of using a body double for intimate scenes was not received well. However now that Ash is married and is a Bachchan, the clause will no doubt be the same this time too.

Ash is currently shooting along with hubby Abhishek and father-in-law Amitabh for Ramgopal Varma’s Sarkar Raj. The pretty actress may also soon be seen opposite stars John Abraham and Shahrukh in her films. A video clip of Ash at the shooting of hubby Abhi’s Lagaa Chunari Mein Daag is currently circulating the net. In the video clip, Ash is seen amongst the crowd of bystanders scrutinizing Rani and Abhishek’s scene. Ash and Rani use to be good friends at one point of time, however things went sour between them and they went their own ways. Rumours also claim that Rani was not invited to the Ash-Abhi wedding due to her link up with Abhi. And now after seeing Miss Rai accompanying her husband for the shooting of Lagaa Chunari Mein Daag in Switzerland, it sure seems like Ash does not want to take any chances.
