Meet Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan commands the position as one of the most beautiful women in the world with her daunting looks and mesmerising personality. She bagged the Miss World title in 1994, and stepped into movies soon after with the effect that she is one of the most powerful celebrities in India.

The government of France awarded her the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2012, while she was conferred with the Padam Shri by the Government of India. She moved on to the film industry in India soon after her crowning in 1994. She made  a debut in the cinema with her appearance in the Tamil movie, Iruver, in 1997. But her first Hindi film release, Aur Pyar Ho Gaya, was not far behind.

Down the annals of time, she went through several successes and failures. She even landed with an English movie with Doug Lefler. The movie's failure to gain recognition at the box office drew her critics to say she was not a good actress, although she was quite pretty. January 2015 saw her shooting for the thriller, Jazbaa. Besides this, she is also committed to make an appearance in some more movies.

She has been active in campaigning and endorsing many other products and brands. She has been quite active in social work too. Rai was involved in a storming relationship with actor, Salman Khan, in 1999 which ultimately fizzled out. Her relationship with actor, Abhishek Bachchan, soon blossomed and the couple announced their engagement in 2007. They moved on to marry in 2007, and have a daughter, Aaradhya, born in 2012.
