: Julia Roberts Aishwarya Rai is the most beautiful woman in the world Roger Ebert(film critic)- Aishwarya Rai is not just the first, but also the second most beautiful woman in the world Rekha Among the models I admire, I find Aishwarya is the best. I disagree with the media that she is plastic. I find her very expressive. Linda Evangelista(Supermodel) Shes stunningly beautiful. Shobha De I think Aishwarya Rai is quite a star. Shah Rukh Khan Its sad that things didnt work out with Ash in Chalte Chalte. But believe me, I bear no ill will towards her. I feel very proud of the fact that when you go to London, France, Germany, the only two Indian names people recognise are Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh Bachchan has been there for so many years and hes wonderful. But Aishwarya Rai is our contemporary, younger than many of us. Shes perhaps done less work than me and to still be the international face of Indian cinema is great. Shah Rukh Khan(on the Chalte Chalte controvery) See, people will keep saying that I dont work with her because Im Shah Rukh Khan and supposedly a big star and powerful enough to say no to her. Yes, I didnt want to work with her for a year. And it wasnt for any reason I can attribute to her. Its just that I felt embarrassed after what happened. Rekha I will fight for her like a tigress if need be. She looks unbelievable in the promos of Umrao Jaan. I dont know how it will do commercially. But Im hoping and praying that this film does for Aishwarya Rai what Umrao Jaan did for Rekha, and more. My heart goes out to Ash. Shes been around for so long and yet not been there. Thats how it was with meuntil I did Umrao. It seemed improbable that a Tamilan girl talking Urdu would work. Similarly this South Indian girl should realize her potential in Umrao. She doesnt need to go to Hollywood to prove herself. Shes our own. Why Bride & Prejudice? Who are these people from outside trying to tap Ashs potential? Shes our treasure. Its time we acknowledge her. Sanjay Leela Bhansali - Most of Ash is lost in her beautiful face. So directors keep focusing on that and her acting skills arent put to use. She is a directors actress. I believe I have brought out the best in Ash. She is a wonderful friend, and we get along like a house on fire. We can chat for hours, or not say a word, and be comfortable. John Abraham Honestly when you think of beauty, you think of Aishwarya Rai. Bipasha Basu Besides, to be successful, one needs to be content in life. Today, if I want to be Aishwarya Rai, I cannot be her. The same stands true for Aishwarya [to be Bipasha], says the actress. Akshay Kumar Its been a beautiful experience(on working in Khakee.) There was an unfortunate accident during Khakee. Too much has been said and written about what I did to help her and Tusshar Kapoor after the mishap. So I dont want to talk about it, except to say that I did only what was right. Salman Khan - "She is a good girl. Respects her parents. I am a bad boy. Ismail Merchant - Aamir Khan has great potential, as does Shah Rukh Khan. As for Aishwarya Rai, they worshipped her in Cannes last year. Rajkumar Santoshi I couldnt have imagined anyone making a more convincing Mahalaxmi. Its one of the most interesting women characters one has seen in recent times, elaborates the director of Khakee. Sushmita Sen I think there is definitely a very huge price to pay when you are as beautiful as Aishwarya Rai is. There is huge price to pay when your entire projection has always been that of perfection. So even if the poor girl does something, as sneeze in public, its news, and its bad news So I really wish that media would give Aishwarya Rai a break because I think a girl goes through a lot of pressure all the time from everybody from the Madame Tussauds, to the world press, to English movies etc. It just like that the world is expected out of Aishwarya Rai. She is just a girl, she will take her time and I am sure she will come out of it. Sushmita Sen - I am proud of Aishwarya. She has given every Indian a reason to be proud. Pooja Batra The way Ash has come up and taken the entire world by storm is a good thing for all of us Indian girls. Beyonce Im a fan of a few Bollywood films. I have seen Devdas and Lagaan , both great films. I loved Devdas the actress was amazing! I cried towards the end of the film, she reveals. Sanjay Leela Bhansali Its the past now. A lot of incidents happen in life that ideally shouldnt, so wed rather not mull over it, over and over again. I cant undo what happened, neither can Aishwarya, but we can look past it, and weve done that. Im glad the misunderstanding happened, because we are closer to each other today. That does not mean that all my future films will have Ash but, yes, if theres a story that needs her, I know shell be there. Dino Morea I wouldnt mind being bodyguard to a lot of ladies, actually. But, yes, I find Jennifer Lopez very pretty and like her a lot. Id like to be JLos bodyguard! Coming back home it would be Aishwarya, Karan Johar On Ashs appearance on Koffee with Karan Aishwarya was a tough cookie. She was unflappable. Thats whats beautiful about her. The way she handled me was perfect. Viviek Oberoi Of course she has a beautiful face but shes even more beautiful inside. in her soul. I also admire the dignity and strength with which she lives her life Atul Kasbekar(photographer) Shes stunning. You can put your light anywhere and shoot her, and shell look good. There are very few people who land on this planet genuinely believing theyve come with a certain destiny. They are the chosen few. Im willing to wager that Aishwarya genuinely believes that God has given her so much that she shouldnt fritter it away., Again, I say this in the most positive way,.She may not say this aloud, but Aishwarya has, from day one, known where shes headed and worked towards it. Zayed Khan - For lack of better words, Aishwarya is truly fantastic. It doesnt happen often to too many people, but I can say that Im a firm believer in God. I made a wish to work with her, and He made it come true for me. I dont know how someone can know Aishwarya and not like her. After knowing her, I realised what a wonderful person she actually is, and Im glad I saw that side of her, or else it would have been a complete disappointment. Gurinda Chadha(director of Bride and Prejudice) I think shes going to be very particular about showing her body and about any kind of physical, intimate scenes. Because shes a good Indian girl at heart. Martin Henderson(co star Bride and Prejudice) - I have a soft spot for her. Its not because of her beauty,though she is very beautiful. I like the side that isnt seen.The real Ash is a sweet girl. She reminds me of an old fashioned movie star-So glamorous I think I was lucky to get to know a side of Ash that alot of people never see,I mean the image of Ash is this huge movie star which she is in India is one thing,and I think that was compelling,but you know I was lucky to spend time with her and get to know the other side of her which is a really sweet,very sensitive,and really loveable person,she giggles a lot Sneha Ullal Aishwarya Rai is the complete Indian beauty and its a huge compliment when I am compared to her. Abhishek Bachchan (on KNK shooting experience) A huge mob kept chasing us around Nariman Point. It was so frustrating because we could not get any work done, but it was also a good ego boost. But then I would look over to my right and see Ash and realise why they were all there. Rituparno Ghosh I was never interested in her as a person. But during the shooting of Chokher Bali I got to know her as an extremely emotional and intelligent person. She has the rare ability of surrendering to the director. Simi Garewal Ash is as beautiful inside as she is outside. Its difficult for people to digest that. So they conveniently conclude the sweet exterior hides a devious inner life. Keira Knightley Ive heard that Aishwarya Rai is the most beautiful woman in the world, Emraan Hashmi a conventional looker like Ash would be my idea of sinful beauty. Divya Dutta The minute Ash walks in, we are transported into another time zone. Priyanka Chorpa(on who is the face of India) - Aishwarya Rai is. Look at her beauty and popularity! It crosses geo-political boundaries. Ive a long way to go before I can be considered the face of India. Preity Zinta Its great; nobody is making a hue and cry about going to Hollywood. Ash is doing films there, shes beautiful and talented and I hope she makes a mark for herself. I hope she opens the doors for Indians on a global platform. Im happy and excited for her and I wish her all the best. Entertainment is becoming global. Sanjay Leela Bhansali Aishwarya is one of the most intelligent persons Ive met. Her grasping power is extraordinary. She is all there. Always. Thinking. Questioning. She does her homework in the car on her way to the set. She is very graceful too. Even if I asked her to run down the stairs, she would do it so rhythmically that I would be awe-struck. I didnt have to work too much on her. Hrithik Roshan Ive just started working with Ash. Shes looking stunning. Its very nice working with someone who is so beautiful, talented, down-to-earth and easy to talk to. Lets hope we can live up to the expectations. Sanjay Gadhvi(Director, Dhoom 2) Aishwarya is not only extremely beautiful and attractive but also very sexy, hot and immensely talented. And theres nothing thats come in the way of her progress no audiences mental blocks, no over-expectations, no nothing. Ashs oomph has added to the sexiness of Dhoom 2. The truth is that the camera just loves Ash. Hrithik Roshan I have to say that I had judged her wrong. I felt really foolish at thatSometimes beauty just takes over so much of the other talents. Shes someone with a lot more mettle than just what shows on her face. I was quite shocked to see the kind of intelligence she lends to her characters. It was quite a task matching up to the worlds most beautiful face. In Akbar Jodha I will make sure that I take my character very seriously, and turn the tables on her so that she will be inspired by me, just as I was by her in Dhoom 2. Will Smith She has a powerful energy. She doesnt have to say anything, she doesnt have to do anything. Whatever she wants to make, Im there. I really wanted to work with her in Hitch but she was shooting for Bride and Prejudice at the time and she couldnt do it, he said. Will Smith Shes the mould that God made the first woman from. Stunt coordinator Steve Griffin - Because of her dance history, she moves well and remembers choreography easily. We put a sword in her hand and she just flowed, the next thing was to tet her aggression up to make it look like she would kill somebody. I believe her to be a natural born action hero. Fight choreographer Dion Lam (Spider-man 2, The Matrix 1, 2 and 3) - Aishwarya is faster than any other actress Ive ever taught. Very smart and intelligent. If she does action films, she will become a true super-hero. Rajiv Menon Director of Photography (Guru), Director (Kandukondain Kandukondain) - On the whole I personally believe that you always have to light your heroine like a queen and this is not very difficult with an actor like Aishwarya Rai. What was important was to make her look touchable. So the skin would always look light and not overdiffused. A little bit of shine and a little bit of grease actually helped. Preity Zinta - What is unfortunate when you are an actress is that everyone thinks they have access to you personal life. Take Ash as a case in point, why is everyone on this hate mail trip as far as she is concerned? I know one thing about her that she has conducted herself with such dignity, whatever her position in the numbers game. And people are out judging her in the newspapers and magazines and formulating and airing opinions without even knowing her or what she is going through. I was so disturbed yesterday when I read something on the internet that I actually posted something on the site and asked everybody to back off. I feel protective. Besides, today it is her, tomorrow it might be me. Urmila Matondkar Age is no bar Aishwarya Rai who has crossed 30 is getting more films. In fact, film actresses become more popular after crossing the age of 30. Akshaye Khanna - When someone asked me about the kind of woman I would like to marry, I simply said that she would be someone like Ash. She is talented and beautiful, anyone would like to marry a woman like her. Skah rukh khan: now the tulip will never smell as sweet by any other name, you will have to know it by Aishwarya Rai Meghna Kothari(co star Bride and Prejudice) I remember the song we four sisters in the film had to sing. Ash and me were hugging and swinging around. For a moment, I lost my balance because I got lost looking into her eyes! Suddenly, I thought of Devdas and Ash on that jhula. She is so gorgeous; for a moment, I was taken aback. Preity Zinta Aishwarya.I get along very well with her. I was on the world tour with her three years ago from then we became very close friends. Despite the fact that shes on top she is very down to earth. Success never goes to her head, her head is always on her shoulders. I have worked with other actresses and get along with Manisha, she is very nice and Mahima is like my elder sister she is sweet and I love her. Rani and I work well and, Im friends with Gracy and Priyanka but we dont go to each others houses or call each other. The only actress I visited at her home or called sometimes is Aish . This year when she returned from her world tour we were on the same flight we chatted and had a great time. When her leg broke, I visited her. I recently went to her brothers wedding. Aishwarya is the only close friend I had. Gulzar (Kajra Re lyricist) A lot of songs become successes. But only few become a rage. I now so many people who keep going back to Kajra re because of Aishwaryas dance. The song was a success more because of Aishwaryas dance than my words. Mani Ratnam - I was quite happy with what Ash did in Irruvar. I thought she was quite remarkable, given that it was her first film and in a language (Tamil) that she did not know. In Guru she was speaking Hindi, so it must have been much easier on her. She has done the role with a lot of dignity and poise. She remained very close to the character and has done it with ease. In a film that is based on Guru she stands tall and strong. Vidya Balan - Aishwarya was a dream co-star an absolute delight, and someone I look up to. To even suggest she had my role cut is so ridiculous. I was aware of the extent of my role from the start. I did Guru for the pleasure of working with Mani. There are moments in the film where Aishwarya needed to reach out to me emotionally. She did it so spontaneously she won me over. Vaibhavi Merchant(choreographer) I feel Ash and I are lucky for each other. We did Aankhonki gustakhiyaan, Dil dola re and Kajara re together, all of which have been big hits. In Umrao Jaan weve had a lot of fun working together, although I still feel Devdas was the toughest project Ive ever undertaken, especially the diya sequence. Ash has been trained in Bharat Natyam, not Kathak, but most of the steps in Umrao Jaan came from Kathak. However, she picked up the steps quite well, she even did a 15-minute sequence at a stretch. Though she was sceptical at first about being able to do it, she managed well finally. Bipasha Basu In Bollywood, I like Kajol, Manisha Koirala and Tabu. Also Aishwarya Rai, who I feel, is a complete actress, just like old-time actresses. Abhishek Bachchan I was dreading this flight to Mauritius.We were going to shoot the title song Kuch Na Kaho. I said Oh God please dont let me sit next to her..She was right next to me and I said this is it, I am finished. The woman sleeps like a Ms.World as well, I mean she sleeps perfectly (imitates her posture)and she is out. I couldnt sleep the entire flight because I was petrified that she is going to wake up in the middle of the night for some water and Im going to be like (imitates himself) {laughs}..She is never going to want to romance me after that in the song. The next time she sees me like in a romantic scene she is going to see this troll sleeping next to her! Santosh Sivan its so easy to judge her until you meet her then you get the real picture. Vidya Balan Aishwarya Rai is the epitome of grace; I admire the way she conducts herself. She is by far the most dignified woman Ive ever met in my life. She is humble to the core. Vidya Balan Aishwarya Rai banged on my door,walked right in and said Thought I should drop in and say Hi I was blown away by her warmth.There was no need for her to have done that.She is Aishwarya Rai for gods sake. But the beauty of her is that she is so level-headed and normal. I just love Ash.It is ridiculous to say that she is insecure about me.She has been here for too long and achieved too much. Come on yaar what is she going to be insecure about? Sabyasachi Mukherjee (designer) If Aishwarya Rai walks down the ramp in a certain sari, youd have one million web requests the next day for the very same sari. Its juvenile not to accept that. Mickey Contractor(make up artist) My best work so far has been with Ash in bits of Taal and Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Rani in K3G, and Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Bekhudi. I have wanted to do the Kajre Re look on Ash for a long time. She has done films without make-up, like Mani Ratnams films, but never in commercial cinema. That too, this was an item number. Kangana Ranaut: I just cant stop looking at her. Shes gorgeous. I wonder how anyone can be so beautiful. Im dying to see her in Umrao Jaan. What a fabulous birthday gift she has received from J.P. Dutta. Madhavan Though I dont follow Bengali I saw Ritus Chokher Bali and flipped for Ash. If only hed make me look half as good. Divya Dutta - I always imagined her to be snooty. But one day when I was sitting quietly in a corner, she came up to me and inquired after my health. She is a caring person and shares a brilliant rapport with everyone, says Divya. Sir Ben Kingley - It was a pleasure working with Aishwarya in The Last Legion, and her fans are in for a big surprise. She is an excellent and outstanding actor. She is a shining example of beauty from India and Im sure we will be seeing her in more Hollywood movies real soon, Amitabh Bachchan - Aishwarya is my sons choice and our choice as well, and we are very happy with that. Shes a simple, traditional and a home-loving individual, warm and endearing. Her inner beauty is far greater than her much-renowned outer beauty. Abhisheks choice shall be our choice and our happiness, he says. Will Smith I would do anything that Aishwarya Rai will be part of. I love her so. Preity Zinta Out of Kareena, Rani and Aishwarya, Aishwaryas my favourite, because I did a world tour with her and enjoyed working with her. Also, Ive worked with her for years, and we have a good equation, whether my films a hit or flop, or whether hers becomes a hit or flop, nothing changes. Some people, when their film becomes a hit, they become too arrogant to speak and when their film flops, theyre full of love. Aish hasnt changed from the day I met her. Karan Johar Abhishek is luckier. Ash is a rare combination of beauty and dignity. Shes not that lucky. Hes luckier to have her. Leena Yadav, director of Shabd Well, I think Ash has her brand of sensuality which is dignified and tasteful. Shreya Ghoshal I met Aishwarya several times during the film and she was just wonderful. Extremely polite and charming. Vaibhavi Merchant After Madhuri Dixit, Ash is the only dancer who can carry off classical as well as folk dance with grace. She can express very well. Rarely can someone dance and express well. Some people are technically fantastic but dont have expressions going for them. Ash is a balanced performer; one of the best dancers today. Minissha Lamba Shes the only woman who has handled every crisis in her life with utmost dignity and poise. Whether it was the highs or the lows, shes always held her own and always been so dignified. Kiranjit Ahluwalia When I heard Aishwarya Rai is going to play my character I was very pleased. Of course I had seen her films, like Devdas. Shes so beautiful and such a good actress. Colin firth She is a beautiful and talented person. It was a great experience working with her, Firth said excitedly. Deepika Padukone - Critics believe, youll be the next Aishwarya Rai? Super. Shes my icon, I would love to be like her. Shiamak Davar - I love Abhishek and Aishwarya, not because they are stars but for the kind of people they are. Whenever they come to my institute, they spend more time talking to the crew and the people around than with me. I like people who give respect to others around them, despite their status, that means a lot to me, Ben Kingsely - It was a pleasure working with Aishwarya in The Last Legion, shes a shining example of raw Indian beauty and more importantly she fits the role of Mumtaz well. Vidya balan - shes the epitome of grace. We hardly had scenes together in Guru. But on many occasions I felt she was my sister. I truly admire the way she conducts herself. Even her sneeze is written about. That cant beeasy. Claude Lelouch I think Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is magnificent! Abhishek Bachchan Being married to Aishwarya is like being married to your best friend. Shes someone I love spending time with and I think that is one of the most basic criteria one should consider before getting married to the one you love. Hrithik Roshan Aishwarya is one of the most selfless actors Ive ever worked with. She gives her heart and soul to every film she works on and always aims at looking at the larger picture. She has always done what is best for the film as a whole, not just for her part or her character in the film. As I said, she is a totally selfless actor and it is an absolute treat working with her. Ashutosh Gowariker - Aishwarya is the most professional actress Ive worked with. She never brings any guests to the sets, or even her cell phone for that matter. To me, she is the quintessential princess Straight out of Amar Chitra Katha The distressed princess waiting in her chamber Aishwarya has the elegance and the beauty. Calling her beautiful is an understatement. Sonu Sood - One of the most striking things about Aishwarya is that shes a thoroughbred professional and a dedicated actress. I have played Aishwaryas brother in Jodhaa Akbar, Its been great working with Aishwarya. If I had to recollect a specific scene that I will always cherish, it would have to be the swordfight. It was brilliant for many reasons. First, it was superbly directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and second, having Aishwarya as my opponent in the scene turned out to be fantastic. Whatever she does, she does with supreme grace and dignity. Sanjay Leela Bhansali Aishwarya will always be very special for me. On camera, my God, she generates so much power. Her eye colour changes according to the mood of the scene. There was no sense of oneupmanship between her and Madhuri during Devdas. No negative, looking-over-theshoulder kind of attitude. Id love to work with Ash again. Shes as capable of bringing out the best in me as I am. Were bonded beyond films. After the fire on the set of Black, she was one of the first people to call me. She put aside our differences and connected with me when I was in distress Peeya Rai Choudhary - Shes one of warmest, most supportive, most geniune people Ive worked with. As an actress, shes constantly learning and never content with her performance. As a person, she doesnt believe in getting too close to someone within a very short span of time. Namrata, Meghna, Sonali and I lived with her for almost a month in London during the making of Bride And Prejudice and we had a blast. She is a very down-to-earth girl at heart. Mickey Contractor(make up artist) - Ive known Aishwarya since she took her baby steps in the world of fashion modelling. Ive worked with her since her first Hindi film Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya to her most recent releases. I even dressed her for her marriage, so Ive been an intergral part of her professional and personal life. Shes amazingly unfazed in the thickest of commotion. A calamity make strike yet Aishwarya will be the most calm person around. I admire her logical thinking in tough situations. She has no airs whatsoever. As an actress, her potential is still untapped, I think. Ram Gopal Varma In Sarkar Raj, Aishwarya plays a very strong part with negative shades. Im completely changing her image, cutting her beauty down. And shes shocked me with her performance. Without too many rehearsals and certainly without attending any pre-shoot workshop, she stood up to Amitjiand Abhishek in every scene. She will shock audiences. Nobody would expect a looker like her to portray such a dark character. I want to project her as the opposite of what Sanjay Bhansali did. Her beauty wont be enhanced by filters and lighting. Shell be totally without make-up. Thats when I think she looks her best. Hrithik Roshan - I cant dispute that. Its so true. Ash and I share a fabulous rapport. Its always fun to work with a co-star who isnt selfish. We both gave so much of ourselves to Jodhaa Akbar. Aishwarya has been one of my most helpful co-stars. I really cherish working with her. She is an incredible actor and an even better co-star. And since all three of us-Abhishek, Aishwarya and I-are friends; weve great fun even when not shooting. Jay Sean And also of course there are some very beautiful Indian girls like Aishwarya Rai [of Bride & Prejudice]. Shes a stunning girl. Manwa Naik(co star BnP) Ash was like an elder sister to us. She never made us feel out of place for being new in the industry. She welcomed us and took really good care of us on the sets and made us feel quite comfortable with her hospitality. Shyam Benegal Kareena and Ash are the actresses, who have proved it that along with captivating looks, they are also capable of terrific portrayals. They have, in fact, emerged as very strong performers today. I would really like to work with them. Alisha Chinai(Singer) I have sung only one song for Aishwarya. But look at the impact. JAGMOHAN MUNDHRA She has extremely expressive eyes that speak from her soul. She is able to show her emotions without using words to spell out her feelings. I found her brilliant in her technical knowledge of the camera; her intuition and experience whilst giving shots is excellent. I remember when she first heard the story and the concept of the film she was immediately very keen to do the project and made special allowances by shortening her personal holiday to give me dates. Her complete trust in me added a burden on my shoulders which I appreciated and I am glad that I was able to live up to her expectations. I hope the world is able to see beyond her beauty. Shweta Bhardwaja I am obsessed with her and was very sad to know that she got married, said the 21-year-old, adding If I would have been a boy, I would have definitely married her. Rituparno Ghosh -I think I share a special bond with Aishwarya. We have done two films together and we connected very well. Soha, Koko (Konkona Sen Sharma) and Abhishek are like kids to me because I am so close to their parents. But Ash is different. She is practical, understanding, sensitive and very, very intelligent. Nowhere close to the fancy prima donna she is made out to be. Deepika Padukone From the female lead, only Aishwarya Rai at the moment is dominating in Bollywood having come from the modeling background. A few more like Dia Mirza, Celina Jaitley and Sushmita Sen too have made a mark. Will you be as lucky as they are? Hopefully. Ash is someone I definitely look up to. She is someone Ive really learnt a lot from and I used to watch her endorsements, her films and her modeling career right from the time she started off when I was very little and young. I also remember watching her when she won the Miss World. If my career goes the same way as Aishwaryas, its going to be a huge compliment for me. Hema Malini I dont know how she is in her personal life. But I believe that unless you are good from inside, the beauty will not show on your face. Bipasha Basu - No filmmakers of Hollywood are willing to sign any Bollywood actor without a screen test apart from Aishwarya. They seem to know no Hindi film actors, not even Amitabh Bachchan, Bipasha Basu - I am intelligent enough to realise that women are always secondary in this male dominated industry. Look at the way Shah Rukh Khan, Salman and Aamir are still going strong. But we actresses can never even dream of such an inning. The only actress in Bollywood who has been able to beat this system is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. You can call it her luck or just being at the right place at the right time, but the fact is that she has achieved this feat. In fact her fame goes beyond Bollywood as she is the only one who is recognised in Hollywood. This is something, which cant be said for even SRK or Big B. Madhuri It was wonderful. Even when we did the film together, we had bonded well. And I believe dance brings people closer. Aishwarya is a very sweet person . And doing Dola re with her did bring back some pleasant memories of the days when we shot for Devdas together. Dola re is a very beautiful song for which a lot of energy and movements are needed. Shiamak Davar has choreographed it all over again and it was a pleasure doing the number with the same energy that was required the first time around. There were a lot of dancers and several new movements. People loved it. Deepika Pandukone I admire the way Ash has handled her career. Its not been easy for her as shes always faced a lot of criticism and speculation, which is absolutely unfair. I know what she is going through and what she could be feeling. At the same time shes always dealt with it boldly and kept smiling through it. If I am compared to her, its truly a compliment to me. Madhuri She adds, I was also watching Aishwarya perform after long. I must say, Ash has matured so much as a dancer since we last danced together for Devdas. Shes getting better and better. Rituparno Ghosh So was the case with Aishwarya Rai. She hadnt done serious roles until Choker Bali and Raincoat. But after that, she got recognition for her versatility and was offered more films from different genres. Brendan Fraser I havent seen any Bollywood films, But I have heard about them. And I do know of Aishwarya Rai. Ana Singh Theres going to be no Aishwarya Rai for 200 hundred years. She inspires me to go beyond myself. Rudradeep Chakraborty Ash, as beautiful as the Taj, is a perfect choice for Humayuns Tomb. It helps that she just played a Mughal queen, so there will be a brand familiarity. I hope she always visits the tomb in her Jodhaa costumes. And she must surely ask careless couples not to write their names on the wall. They will surely listen to her. Kabir Bedi She is the best known of the Bollywood group. Id say that Aishwarya has done a remarkable job of marketing herself very well there, Nicole Kidman Im a fan of Aishwarya Rai and her film Bride & Prejudice. I got to meet Aishwarya for the first time at the 2005 Time Magazines 100 Most Influential People in the World dinner held in New York City. I think shes beautiful! I cannot comment on the industry, but I like the emotions and the dance that the Indian movies involve. Kareena Kapoor - I love the way she carries herself and the roles shes choosing after marriage. Id like to follow that pattern when I get married. Katrina Kaif I think Aishwarya is extremely talented. I like the way she conducts herself. I enjoy her movies and I think she is an icon of Indian cinema. I think Aishwarya is cool. Deepika Padukone Undoubtedly, its Aishwarya Rai who has been invigorating my spirits. Well, she has been a model right before commencing her career as an actress and these attributes gets us closer. Kareena Kapoor Aishwarya Rai has become has become very particular after marriage with Abhishek Bachchan. She has a vivacious personality and ravishing smile. She manages her personal and professional life very well. She is also very particular about filmmakers and directors with whom she wants to work. Freida Pinto The only Bollywood film person they know of there is Aishwarya Rai.. she is very famous. Dev Patel I have a crush on all Bollywood actresses, especially Aishwarya Rai and Deepika Padukone. I am too star struck. Zeenat Aman - Aishwarya is a global diva she is gorgeous and very talented enormously talented. Rituparno Ghosh For some sequences, I would consult her before retaining it in the script. She was extremely particular about her continuity details. She made notes in her copy of the script. Her hairdresser and make-up person helped her work out details before she faced the camera. Her major obstacle in becoming one with her character, Binodini was her stardom. But she overcame that to give a memorable performance. Rituparno Ghosh A lot of people are waiting for her [Aishwarya] to fail. In my opinion, Ash has not only given one of her finest performances but also one of the best in cinema. She will be remembered in Chokher Bali not only because she is Aishwarya Rai but also because she has become Tagores Binodini. Shamshad Begum And I was really touched when a young girl like Aishwarya Rai came and met me. Salman Khan Dragging somebodys name with whom I have no connection, and who is happily married to a nice guy, is not just embarrassing, but disgusting. Relationships work and sometimes they dont, thats life. Ana Singh - Youre not just a star, but a constellation of stars for inspiration. Hema Malini- Whoever is on top is the dreamgirl. I feel it is Aishwarya Rai, Sanjay Leela Bhansali says, Aishwarya Rai is a perfect face. With make-up, without make-up, you just cant go wrong with her! Mallika Sherawat - Ash makes waves all her own. Shes one of a kind! Jagmohan Mundra on Ashs performance in Jodhaa Akbar - She is fabulous in the film. She is the epitome of dignity, pride a nd feminine grace. After watching the film, I messaged her, conveying how much I liked her performance. I am a Marwari from Rajasthan and could completely see a Rajput princess in her. Ashutosh Gowariker Aishwarya, for me, belongs to a fairytale. She is a quintessential princess and by far one of the finest actresses we have. She is extremely professional. Shiamak Davar I would love to have her as she is the best and we go back a long way. I have been her teacher and worked closely with her on TAAL and numerous stage shows. For me she is a true blend of total perfection, total beauty and a complete performer. It would have been ideal if her busy schedule would have permitted her to do this show. I would have been the happiest person. Priyanka Chopra God must have taken a vacation to make Aishwarya Rai. We mortals were made in a day. Javed Akhtar Aishwarya is beautiful, but she is not being cast because she is a classic beauty. It is more her personality that comes through. Nobody can really know someone like Aishwarya. There are layers to her personality apart from certain amount of vibrancy. I think Aishwarya is perfect for Amirans character. Rekhaa - She was fabulous in Sanjay Bhansalis Devdas. Everyone wondered how she would compare to Suchitra Sens performance as Paro in Bimal Roys Devdas. But, Im sure comparisons with me will stop after Umrao Jaan is released. I think she will do ample justice to the role which Im sure she has enjoyed doing. Im really looking forward to seeing the film. J.P dutta Ash has surpassed the levels that I had set for her. My brief to her was that she should think of herself as Ameeran, the girl child with tears in her eyes and smile on her face and not as the glamorous Umrao Jaan. Vikram Yes, it was quite an experience. Im a good fighter, but not quite the dancer. Ive always felt that Madhuri Dixit was the best dancer ever. But then, I saw how Aishwarya held her own in Devdas. I thought it was fantastic. So, while shooting for Raavan, I just forgot my own steps and kept staring. Every hero from the south wants to work with her at some point in his career. I got my opportunity finally. Its wonderful that Im making my Hindi debut with her. Its strange how every Miss World and Miss Universe enters movies. But who has had the lingering impact of Aishwarya? She has some kind of an enduring aura. Over the years, she has really evolved as an actor. Abhishek Bachchan she is just that beautiful. And its not just her physical beauty. When you get to know her as a person she is trillion times more beautiful than what she looks. She is always been someone who is very genuine. Even before we got married, she was very genuine and real. We come with a lot of preconceived notions about her. But one is just astounded by the humility and how down to earth she is. Kareena Kapoor I would like to be myself. there is a deep respect for Aishwarya because her body of work is so great. She is the face of India abroad. So I definitely do respect her but as far as emulating her is concerned, i have my own way of looking at things and I know where I stand. http://www.pinkvilla.com/entertainmenttags/john-abraham/stars-speak-aishwarya-rai-bachchan

AK: Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has finally given the nod to veteran filmmaker Shyam Benegal. The film to be shot next year would be an out-and-out female-oriented subject to be shot at one stretch. Says Aishwarya, Ive been working so hard this year that I havent had a chance to look at scripts. But yes, the one that Shyam Benegal has given me is very very special. Weve been meaning to work with one another for years. Aishwarya was earlier offered Benegals Chamki,his screen adaptation of Georges Bizets classic French opera Carmen. Laughs Aishwarya, I dont know how many times that has come to me. He needed to catch the mood during winter in Rajasthan. And somehow I never had that window in my schedule. The new Aishwarya-Benegal project takes the actor into a different time zone. Explains Aishwarya, We met in Hyderabad last year when I was shooting there and he was shooting Well Done, Abba. I hope to be able to sit down with him soon to work out the details. Not willing to divulge any more details at the moment on the Benegal project, all Aishwarya will say is, Its contemporary. But set in a different frame of time. But it isnt a period film. And yes, Aishwarya will finally be working with Raj Kumar Santoshi again. Says the actor, I think Rajji has been offering me a film almost every year. Only once when I had twenty days in my schedule was I able to work with him in Khakee. Now well do something else. Meanwhile Aishwarya has a very busy year ahead. After Raavan in two versions,Hindi and Tamil, she has Endhiran in Tamil,Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Guzaarish and Vipul Shahs Action Replay coming up by the end of the year. - Dnaindia.com

AK: Raavan may have tanked, but that hasnt stopped the biggest directors in Bollywood from chasing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The latest to woo is her is Vishal Bhardwaj, for a woman-centric project that is expected to take off in 2011. Ash has even set aside her dates for the project, sources tell us. Says a source close to Aishwarya, Vishal and Aishwarya have a history of misses. Years ago, she was supposed to do his first directorial venture, Timbucktoo. This year too, she was approached for Saat Khoon Maaf, but she didnt have the dates and the film eventually went to Priyanka Chopra. The source adds that Bharadwaj was hurt by Ashs constant refusals, but the actress would repeatedly tell friends that she would love to work with him, dates permitting. Aishwarya had liked the script for Saat Khoon Maaf. But 2010 has been an especially busy year for her, what with five films releasing. Vishal couldnt wait, and he went to Priyanka Chopra. It happens. Even Prakash Jhas Raajneeti was first offered to Priyanka Chopra. When she couldnt do it, Katrina got it. Now at a juncture in her career where she craves unconventional roles, the actress is finally set to work with the director on the project, a contemporary romantic subject with an unusual climax. Confirming this, Rai-Bachchan said, Yes, Vishal and I have been meaning to work together for quite some time. Things are working out now. He feels Ive been saying no far too often, but it wasnt my fault. Things finally are falling into place. - Mid-Day.com
