Aishwarya Rai is a real pearl and pride of India. This actress proved that the path is open to Indian artists anywhere, even to Hollywood. She is loved and admired. However, this was not always the case. Actress Aishwarya Rai faced criticism and even hate from fans . How did it happen that a Bollywood and Hollywood star, Miss World and the main face of India from a public favorite suddenly turned into a “shame of the nation”? Yes, yes, that’s what they called her too. We tell you how the fate of the beautiful Aishwarya turned out.
Actress Aishwarya Rai: the beginning of the journey
Aishwarya Rai probably never thought as a child that she would become so famous. The girl just dreamed of becoming a doctor and then an architect. However, her external data did not go unnoticed. Already at school, Aishwarya began her modeling career . She starred in commercials and even became the face of Pepsi in India. Her modeling career culminated in her participation in the Miss India competition. But the girl did not win: she had to give way to her competitor Sushmita Sen. Aishwarya received second place.
“Miss World 1994”
While Aishwarya’s rival went to the Miss Universe pageant, the girl herself represented India at the less prestigious Miss World 1994 competition. Aishwarya Rai won . Of course, the directors also paid attention to the beauty.
Aishwarya Rai in movies
The actress made her debut in the film “Tandem”. Even then, success came to her as an actress: the film received an award at an international film festival, and Aishwarya received the admiration of the public . The actress’s next big success was the film “Devdas”. It was shown in Cannes. In addition, it was included in the top ten best films of the millennium. Aishwarya Rai represented her native country at the Cannes Film Festival, and a year later she became a member of the jury there.
Later, the actress starred in a number of films: not only Indian, but also Western . The girl was offered to play with such celebrities as Brad Pitt and Robert De Niro. The actress’s list of projects includes the films “Bride and Prejudice”, “The Pink Panther 2”, “Robot”, “The Last Legion”, “The Spice Princess” and others. The latter, by the way, failed at the box office, but many people love and watch it.
Personal life and career
It is here that the dog of all troubles is buried. When Aishwarya Rai began to build her personal life, became pregnant, and gave birth to a child, many fans were horrified. Not only did Aishwarya take a career break, but she, like any normal woman, gained a little weight after giving birth. For fans, this was a big blow, they say, how could Aishwarya, the face and pride of India, do this. Fans believed that the actress simply did not have the right to gain weight, take a break from films, and so on.
A flurry of criticism and a return to cinema
Abhishek Bachchan became Aishwarya Rai’s chosen one . The couple had a daughter, Aaradhya. Of course, the fans were happy for their favorite, for her family happiness. However, things turned out differently when they saw fresh photos of Aishwarya after the birth of her daughter. In them, the actress looked not like a beauty icon and Miss World, but like an ordinary woman who gave birth to a child. The fans did not expect this. An ocean of negativity fell on the actress; she was even called a disgrace to the nation. Journalists didn’t lag behind either. Many wrote that Rai herself was to blame, because she constantly presented herself as ideal, but in reality this turned out not to be the case.
Criticism is criticism, but all this did not stop the woman from enjoying motherhood. Aishwarya was infinitely happy. After four years, she returned to form and continued her acting career. Fans forgot all the grievances and again began to shower Aishwarya with compliments and rays of goodness. The actress starred in the films “Mutual Attraction”, “Sarabjit”, “Affairs of the Heart” and others. The premiere of the film “Son of Ponni” with the participation of Rai is planned for 2021.
This is how the fate of the Indian beauty turned out. As they say, not everything is as smooth as it might seem. Do you think national idols have the right to “upset” fans with their personal choice of path?
